Data Encryption in Transit
All data sent and received from GivingTrax is encrypted in transit using multiple layers of security including HTTPS and Transport Layer Security.
Data Encryption at Rest
Along with encrypting data in transit, GivingTrax further ensures it remains encrypted at all times. This means that data stored on servers remains encrypted at the highest level of cryptographic security available. Several layers of encryption are in use to protect data. This includes distributed file system encryption and database and file storage encryption for all user data, and storage device encryption is in place for all data. Data remains encrypted on backup media.

Detect & Protect Against Threats
End-to-end encryption including encryption at rest has the following benefits:
- Helps to ensure that if data falls into an attacker’s hands, the attacker cannot read the data. Even if attackers obtain the storage devices that contain customer data, they won’t be able to understand it or decrypt it.
- Provides an important privacy mechanism for customers. When data is encrypted at rest, it limits the access that systems and engineers have to the data.
Additionally, GivingTrax utilizes the method of “least privilege”, “need to know”, and “segregation of duties” in our access policies and procedures further protecting customer data.
Protection Against Fraud
GivingTrax offers multi-authentication to make sure your account is safe guarded. This means we check the authenticity of your account access by sending a code to the registered mobile phone. Additionally, safeguards are in place to ensure a real person is logging into the account.
Additional measures against fraud are in place to prevent impersonation of organizations on the GivingTrax platform. Individuals registering an organization must provide verification they authorized to do so.
All GivingTrax employees undergo security and privacy training as part of the onboarding process. Additionally, annual ongoing security and privacy training is in place for our team.
