As practitioners ourselves, we knew when building SECTARA that security needed to be bulletproof. In addition to a Government accredited host, we use field level encryption and at the time of writing (March 2020) were in the process of achieving IRAP compliance. This means that the system and your data is protected to the highest standards available and only your authorised account users can see your Sensitive Data – not us or anyone else.
All data created is stored within Amazon Web Services within Australia – no data is stored outside the country. This means that, if you are an Australian subscriber, you have complete assurance over data residency (indeed, this is an IRAP requirement).
If you are from another country, you have the assurance that world-class standards are applied to any data that is hosted here. We are constantly looking at regional AWS hubs to extend to, in order to offer the same data sovereignty assurances to international clientele; if you have a such a need and would like us to extend to your country/region, Contact Us and let us know.
Moreover, the only administrators that have access to the live/production environment (and the encrypted data contained within it) hold high-level security clearances, which are issued by the Australian Government.
