Safe

 

Are you concerned that a hurricane, fire or other natural disaster might turn your world upside down in a blink of an eye?  It would be even more tragic to realize after one of these events that your most critical documents and information have been destroyed. You would not only be required to rebuild your home but also your estate plan and related documents.  In the past, personal safes were used to hold this information with the thought that they would be protected.

 

Unfortunately, safes have proven useful for storing documents in everyday situations, but ineffective when disaster strikes.  Will your lockbox survive the intense flames of a house fire?  Can you even find it if a tornado hits?  If you cannot be sure of the answers to these questions, then a lockbox as your sole method of document storage is probably inadequate. 

 

That's where The DocSafe comes in.  The DocSafe can provide you and your family with peace of mind knowing that your important documents are safe from harm's way.  We employ extensive measures to ensure that whatever you chose to store in The  DocSafe will be available to anytime and anywhere you can access the internet.

  

Secure

At The DocSafe, we take securing your information seriously.  To protect your information and assets, we employ extensive security controls, regularly adapting them as technology and threats evolve. 

 How We Protect Your Information

  • Site Security.  For your general online security, look for https: instead of http: in the beginning of the URL address before entering any sensitive information, indicating the site is secure (e.g., "https://www.TheDocSafe.com"), and a secure symbol (e.g., a closed padlock or key) on the status bar of your browser.

  • Membership Identification and Password.  When you sign up for your membership, you create your own personal password using no less than eight characters.  We require your password to contain at least on uppercase letter, one lowercase letter, one number and one special character. Together with your membership identification, your secret password allows you encrypted, secure access to your account.

  • Firewalls. To block unauthorized access, our systems are protected by firewalls that prevent unauthorized access to your information. Firewalls can be thought of as a selective barrier that permits only specific types of traffic through to our systems.

  • Encryption. The DocSafe encrypts all information placed on our server.  When it is downloaded by an authorized user, it is decrypted for your use.  Documents and information stored in The DocSafe are secured using the latest in encryption technology.

  • Restricted Employee Access. No employees of The DocSafe have access to your documents or the information that you enter in your Secure Profile.  

How You Can Help

While we at The DocSafe continue to provide security controls to protect information about you, it is extremely important for you to share in the responsibility for security. The following are some things you can do to protect yourself:

  • Password.  Make your password as obscure or abstract as possible (such as random letters and numbers rather than a recognizable word), and change it on a regular basis. Do not use dictionary words, your name, e-mail address, or other personal information that can be easily obtained.  If you think that your password may have been compromised, change it immediately.  Avoid using the same password for multiple online accounts.

  • Personal Firewall.  Use a personal firewall to prevent unauthorized access to your computer when you are online.

  • Install Security Updates.  Most software companies release updates or patches to address security concerns. Some websites, such as Microsoft, offer the ability to scan your computer for missing updates. Check your computer at least monthly for updates.

  • Install Anti-Virus Software.  Most virus protection programs offer automatic weekly and emergency downloads of the latest updates.  Scan all files for viruses at least monthly.

  • Install Anti-Spyware Software.  Spyware runs on your computer and can gather private information such as passwords and credit card numbers.  Anti-spyware software can be installed separately or as a part of your anti-virus software.

  • Logging-Off.  When you are done with your account, always logoff from the site to exit the application and prevent further access to your account. When using a public computer (such as in a library or school), also close the browser when you are finished.
