Protecting Sensitive DataIn order to protect sensitive data used for self-service transactions, we are using SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) technology for all such transactions.
We are using SSL certificates that ensure the following:
• Encryption of sensitive information during online transactions.
• Login and password information is encrypted.
• Verification of the identity of the certificate owner (NEIU) by the issuing Certificate Authority.
Our certificates are issued by Verisign (www.verisign.com), one of the leading Certificate Authorities. More information on the protections offered by SSL can be found at www.verisign.com.
