Bottom line, we take security and privacy very seriously. We recognize that before we can help you with your 401k, we have to keep your information safe and secure.
Here’s how we do it:
We use 256-bit SSL encryption. This is fancy IT jargon that basically means that the connections between you and our servers are secured to industry standard specifications.
As required by the SEC, every year we are independently audited by a CPA firm. They are thorough, unrelenting, and we are perfectly happy to comply.
Your information is stored behind state of the art firewalls on servers in a secure facility. The facility is guarded 24 hours a day by security staff, surveillance cameras, and biometric hand scanners.
We don’t maintain credit card information and use auditing, logging, backups, and safe-guarding of data.
We’ve run numerous security tests of our own software and systems including, port scanning, SQL injection tests, and cross-site scripting.
Our systems maintain the latest virus, malware and spyware protection software.
Any 401k that we manage for you is held by an independent custodian, not by us.
Everyone on our staff has passed a thorough background check.
ADDITIONALLY, WE HAVE BUILT IN A NUMBER OF SAFEGUARDS INTO OUR APPLICATION:
If you are inactive for an extended period of time we automatically log you out so unauthorized people cannot access your account.
All emails coming from blooom will address you by name, so you can be confident we know who you are and the email is coming from us.
We have a security seal and certificate from Verisign who has also verified our identity.
We understand keeping your information secure and confidential is critical to earning and keeping your trust – so is maintaining your privacy. We never rent, sell or trade your personal information to anyone. Ever.
