At Credential Direct, we take great care in protecting the assets that matter most – yours. That’s why we take a number of security measures to help ensure the integrity of your transactions and your financial and account information.
- LocalSSL Secure™: Free security software that protects you from keyloggers and phishing scams while you’re on Credential Direct. More
- Access Security Guarantee 100% coverage: In the unlikely event you suffer financial losses in your Credential Direct account as a result of unauthorized brokerage activity, we'll reimburse you 100%, provided you've met your security responsibilities. More
- Encryption Technology: We are the only brokerage in Canada to offer both web-based (128-bit, HTTPS, Verisign) and PC-based (LocalSSL Secure) encryption technologies to help maximize your protection from online fraud.
- Inactivity Logout: Our system automatically logs you off after an extended period of inactivity, reducing the risk that others could access your information.
- Secure Firewalls: All of our systems are protected by secure firewalls to prevent any unauthorized access.
- Systems Monitoring: We monitor our systems to ensure that you have timely, secure access to your account and to quickly identify any unusual activity.
- Restricted Access: We restrict access to systems containing customer data, monitoring system access continuously. And in the event of data loss, your information is backed up to a secure off-site facility.
