The IdentityHawk℠ site, http://www.IdentityHawk.com, the online identity protection service that “stops fraud before it starts,” is secured by state-of-the-art protection including Experian PCI certification, McAfee security scans, TrustE certification, and VeriSign certification. These security features ensure that all member information is encased within an iron-clad secure environment.
Details of IdentityHawk security features are below:
● Experian PCI certification. The Experian EI3PA (Experian Independent Third-Party Assessment) certification ensures maintained data security. It includes the PCI standard security controls (including staff augmentation, source code review, and application and network assessments) expanded to apply to Experian data - not just to credit card processing data. Foundstone/McAfee ensures IdentityHawk meets these standards.
● McAfee security scans. The IdentityHawk site is a certified McAfee secure site, which means it is tested and certified daily to pass the McAfee’s intensive security tests. McAfee tests for possible personal information access, links to dangerous sites, phishing, and other online dangers. McAfee attempts to hack into the IdentityHawk site with automated scripts daily to strenghthen the site’s systems.
● VeriSign certification. This certification confirms that the IdentityHawk site uses the latest standard for SSL secured transmission of data (2048-bit SSL certificates). Upon clicking VeriSign logo, VeriSign presents the user with a reassuring validation message that the site is operated and owned by IdentityHawk.
