In today’s hi-tech world, everything is done online. As more and more of our personal information passes over the Internet, security is critical. Whether it’s our birthday or our social security number, we want to know that our personal information is safe and secure.
The Cvent address book has always been a create place to store and build your contact database. And while the Cvent prides itself on the security of our clients data (we're the only survey software solution provider that is PCI Level 1 compliant), there were certain contact fields that there were certain contact fields that many considered to be too private to store in their address book without extra security. That is, until now.
With our latest new release, Cvent has added four new encrypted contact fields: Date of Birth, Social Security Number, National Identification Number and Passport Number. The new contact fields allow you to store sensitive information in your address book with the peace of mind that the data is encrypted and safe from harm.
Cvent even gives you the ability to restrict certain account users from viewing the encrypted fields, to ensure that only select people have access to the personal information. Viewer permission for Social Security Number, National Identification Number and Passport Number will be set at the User Role level.
Cvent’s new encrypted contact fields provide a new layer to the address book that will allow users to expand upon their contact database, with the knowledge that their contacts’ information is secure.
In order to update the application, Cvent will be unavailable for all users, including registrants and respondents, starting at 9:00 PM US ET tonight, Friday, January 20, 2012. The update will be complete by or before 4:00 AM US ET on Saturday, January 21, 2012. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
