Protecting your family includes protecting your data
Ethos cares about families and we consider safeguarding the security and privacy of customer data an integral part of our mission. We value the trust you place in us, and take the following steps designed to protect your data:
Our efforts to protect you
Safeguarding your data starts before you share it with us. Ethos has built a robust data security program designed to prevent, detect, and respond to security threats. Here are some of its elements:
Ethos leverages encryption technologies designed to protect your data. We leverage TLS V1.2 over our websites, an encryption protocol intended to keep data secure when being transferred over a network. Ethos’ website has been rated A by Qualys’ SSL Labs, a leading assessor of website encryption capabilities.
Multi-factor authentication
Multi-factor authentication (MFA) provides an additional layer of data security beyond your username and password. Ethos has implemented and requires MFA for accessing systems storing customer data.
Ethos engages 3rd parties to evaluate and audit its data security program. These audits assess the effectiveness of cybersecurity controls across the organization.
