Data Encryption & Security
Protecting your personal information from unauthorized access is an important part of providing services to you. Not only do we use security measures that comply with relevant laws, we use multiple layers of security in every component of our services.
De-Identify & Encryption: We anonymize your data by separating your financial data and your identifying information (email, name) and storing the information in different databases. Databases are encrypted and have the identifying fields replaced with new encrypted id tokens. AES-256 encryption is used for all data at rest with multi-layer key management, including rotated user-specific keys.
Bank Level Security: Information in transit is encrypted at rest with AES 256‐bit encryption and encrypted in transit using Transport Layer Security (TLS). Secure File Transfer Protocol (SFTP) servers and/or AWS CLI S3 Sync are used in instances where files are transferred.
Device Authentication: When you visit the Site, we recognize your device for enhanced security. If registered with an account, you will be notified by email or text if access to your account is attempted from an unauthorized device.
Data centre and network: Our services are exclusively hosted within Canadian AWS data centres, which are trusted by leading global financial institutions, including Capital One, Barclays, Thomson Reuters, and Nasdaq.
