- Script Protection
- Disk Write Protections
- Plugin Access Restriction
- External Security Penetration Testing
- Annual SAS 70 Type II Examinations
- Encryption of All Backup Media

If you are still concerned, we recommend changing the text file name to something random and using a “throw-away email” to sign up.
