You’ll be pleased to hear that security is a top priority at OpenSure. As you would expect we implement a raft of measures to protect our servers – pardon us if we keep the details to ourselves. We don’t rest on our laurels though, far from it. Our systems are monitored constantly, software kept up to date and performance reviewed regularly.
However this is just one aspect of maintaining security, and it’s one that’s pretty easy to understand, if complex to run. What concerns OpenSure just as much is the security of the information our clients store locally and pass between devices. We actively promote the use of software that works beautifully between desktops, laptops, tablets and phones, so we want to make sure that our clients understand how to protect themselves and their data.
You may be unaware of it, but if you use a mobile phone, you quietly leak information 24 hours a day. If you use email systems such as Gmail or remain logged in to services including Facebook and Google+, you allow ‘them’ unlimited access to your information and lifestyle. ‘Them’ can include government agencies as well as the usual information-scraping websites.
If you’re aware of this and view it as a happy trade-off in return for the use you get from these services then stop reading. if however it concerns you, read on for details of what happens, how it happens, why it happens and how you can stop it.
