What are Visual Software's standards for security?
Security relates to the protection of a school's data at its source and as it is being transmitted over the Internet. All Visual Software applications are continuously maintained to keep them up to date with the latest state of the art in security protection. In general, there are three levels of security protection:
- Consumer: this would be like what you encounter on most social media sites
- Consumer Financial: this is what you would encounter when making a purchase with a credit card
- Bank to bank: this is the type of security used between banks when they make transfers between them.
Visual Software products that exchange student and staff personal data use the "bank to bank" — the strongest level of security, but do support the other forms of security as well.
