SECURITY OF INFORMATION

CIA Uses 6 Levels of Protection to Secure Online Data

  • All orders are requested and sent back via 256-bit SSL encryption, secured by a security certificate from Comodo.
  • Our network is protected from the outside via CISCO ASA 5505 firewalls, and only accessed remotely via HTTP, HTTPS, and SMTP (email) protocols. All other ports are blocked.
  • Our inside network is protected via Windows 2008 Enterprise Severs, with redundancy, and offsite backup.
  • The data is protected and encrypted in Lotus Domino servers, and replicated offsite to a secure location with another CISCO ASA 5505 firewall.
  • We limit access to sensitive data inside our office by encrypting all the way down to field level on certain things like credit card numbers and social security numbers, and only allow access to those who need the information.
  • CIA practices a "paperless" operation, which effectively prevents any names and/or social security numbers from accidentally getting into the wrong hands. Any printed documents are shredded immediately after faxing.
