Privacy and Security

How do the security questions and answers work?

The verification code provides an extra layer of security to further authenticate your identity when you sign up for a PECB account. This added security feature will prevent the unauthorized use of your email address to be associated with a PECB account.

How secure is PECB’s website. Can I trust you with my personal data?

All data transmitted through the PECB website is encrypted with Secure Socket Layer (SSL).

SSL is a protocol used to provide security over the Internet. The protocol creates an encrypted link between a server and a client. This link ensures that all data passed between the server and the client remain private and secure. PECB has installed a True Business ID SSL certificate from GeoTrust throughout the entire website which makes communication secure and difficult for attackers to “sniff” your information and gain access to your user account and personal data. Additionally, please read our website legal notice under TERMS, CONDITIONS AND POLICIES which every user signs when opening an account with PECB.
