We consistently follow the best practices in internet security. We use a respected, secure hosting provider for the site that has passed HIPAA standards and earned SAS Type II certification. We also use state of the art firewalls for our production servers, and our systems have been developed to prevent the most common security vulnerabilities. For secure browsing, we use 128-bit SSL encryption using Verisign certificates. Finally, when we do any testing and development work to the site, we use sanitized versions of the site, with all personally identification information stripped out.
