Security testing

The security of the UK Bond Network web application is subject to independent and professional reviews, conducted by PTS Consulting Ltd.


GeoTrust

UK Bond Network uses Let's Encrypt for the provision of its SSL certificates. This provides the strongest encryption available whenever sensitive information is entered or displayed on the UK Bond Network website.


Encryption

From the moment any personal or account information leaves your computer to the time it enters UK Bond Network's system all online access is encrypted.We employ some of the strongest forms of encryption commercially available for use on the Web today. During any transaction, our 128-bit encryption turns your information into a coded sequence with billions of possible variations, making it nearly impossible for unwanted intruders to decipher. Additionally, private information collected to verify your identity is stored in an encrypted fashion in our database. Look for a “closed lock” icon in your browser to confirm if encryption is being used on any Web page you are viewing. Any Web address beginning with “https://...” indicates the page you are viewing uses encryption. The “s” stands for “secured.”


Secure account set-up and login

When you log on to create a UK Bond Network account, we ask you to create a username, password, and provide answers to three security questions. This information is encrypted during transmission and will remain a secret as long as you do not disclose it. To securely log on to your account, you are asked to provide your username and password. You must then enter the answer to one of the security questions. Your account will be locked for a period of time if you enter incorrect details to mitigate 'brute force' hacking. If you suspect that someone has had access to your password or answer to security questions, please contact us immediately.


Firewall

Our computer systems are protected 24 hours a day by state-of-the-art firewall technology that blocks unauthorized entry. In order to gain access to authorized information, the Web browser you are using must know the proper protocol, or language, and even then only select information is available.


24-7 security

The servers hosting the UK Bond Network website are monitored  24-7 by security teams and CCTV cameras. In addition the movements of any individuals at the data centre are monitored by proximity card readers, with infra-red intruder sensors and door contacts throughout to detect intruders. This ensures your data is safe and secure.
