The PD/A CRSP Website has security measures in place to protect against the loss, misuse, and alteration of the information under our control. Access to computer data and files at PD/A CRSP may be secured by password coding to prevent unauthorized access.
PD/A CRSP utilizes industry standard SSL (Secure Socket Layer) encryption when accepting confidential information. SSL encryption is a method by which information transmitted across the Internet is encoded to defeat theft by anyone who should intercept the data before it reaches its destination. Webpages where SSL encryption is activated are typically identified by a lock or key symbol displayed in your browser.
While PD/A CRSP uses SSL encryption to protect sensitive information online, user information is also protected off-line. All user information is restricted in our offices to individuals involved in the necessary procedures to provide requested services, such as mailing or emailing publications
