Keeping your data secure is our main priority!


As a business we have invested heavily in ensuring we have the right team, processes and technologies in place to achieve and maintain the highest level of security of your data.

Data and Software Security

Data Backup/Data Recovery

We run multiple database servers.

Should a server have any kind of failure our infrastructure will automatically and seamlessly switch to another server to ensure there is no interruption to the service.

We perform daily backups which are retained for a two week period to allow us to recover data should the need arise.

Data Encryption

Data is protected through encryption both ‘in transit’ and ‘at rest’

Encryption of data ‘in transit’ stops anyone being able to access, intercept, read, copy or duplicate files as they are being sent.

Highly sensitive information such as bank details can also be encrypted ’at rest’ to ensure that should the data ever be stolen, it cannot be accessed or viewed.

To further protect any personal or sensitive information collected from or about the candidate, we pseudonymise all data captured from candidates to make it difficult to associate the information stored with the candidate’s account should it be accessed by unauthorised individuals.

  • Passwords – Passwords are encrypted using HMAC SHA2-512 encryption utilising one way hashes.
  • Data in Transit – All information to and from the system is encrypted in transit using TLS1.2 with a SHA256 SSL certificate. The application can only be accessed via HTTPS using SHA-256 certificates.
  • Data in Rest – We encrypt account passwords using HMAC SHA2-512 encryption. All the answers to application forms, supplemental information forms, interview feedback forms, offer forms and the vacancy details are pseudonymised.
  • Encryption Keys – A different key is randomly generated for every client.
  • Security cryptographic keys – Password cryptographic keys are randomly generated and compiled into the system. The keys are not held anywhere within the database.

Vulnerability Testing

We employ an independent provider to conduct regular Penetration Testing across our software. This is essentially a controlled form of hacking which allows us to identify any weaknesses before anyone else does.

Our software is fully penetration tested and validated on an annual basis by SEC-1.

Sec-1 uses a blend of methodologies taken from industry best practice standards such as the Open Source Security Testing Methodology Manual (OSSTMM), the Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP) and the Council of Registered Ethical Security Testers (CREST).

Annual independent penetration tests are run in September/October each year.

We perform our own penetration tests using an automated tool provided by SEC-1 every month. Reliability and functional user testing is also incorporated.
