Rigorous assessment for enhanced security

Our 6clicks for Government (Australia) environment, hosted in Microsoft Azure Australia Central 1 (Canberra Data Centres), has undergone rigorous IRAP assessment, further reinforcing our commitment to safeguarding sensitive data.
Data protection is at the heart of our operations. To ensure data integrity and confidentiality, 6clicks utilizes industry standard and government-approved encryption methods, employing Transport Layer Security (TLS/HTTPS with HSTS) for data in transit and AES-256 bit encryption for data at rest.

Proactive security measures

We take proactive measures to maintain a robust security posture. Regular monitoring, vulnerability scanning, and penetration testing are carried out to identify and address potential vulnerabilities. Our approach allows us to adapt our countermeasures promptly, mitigating risks effectively.
Upholding Our Security Commitment - Our Guiding Principles:
  1. Build on strong foundations: Our partnership with Microsoft Azure empowers us to leverage its rich feature set, securing our infrastructure and reducing our workload significantly.
  2. Involve everybody: Security is a shared responsibility. Our executive team sets the tone, ensuring accountability for security, with a designated CISO overseeing our security initiatives. We communicate policies and continuously monitor our security program with the involvement of independent advisors, testers, customers, and regulators.
  3. Maintain persistence: Our established Information Security Management System (ISMS) ensures that security activities occur consistently. Constant real-time monitoring, vulnerability scanning, penetration testing, and ongoing training keep us vigilant and prepared.
  4. Be transparent: Transparency is key to building trust. We openly share detailed information about our security arrangements under confidentiality agreements. While we acknowledge that perfection is elusive, we are eager to share our continuous efforts to improve.
