BECAUSE IT’S SECURE
AVirtual’s operations incorporate world-class data security and confidentiality.
Compliant with UK Data Act
In 2013, South Africa passed Data Protection Legislation which made it one of the countries permitted to receive confidential data under the 1998 UK Data Act. More
Trusted by many large firms
South Africa is a trusted outsourcing destination for many large firms, including Linklaters, Freshfields, Lufthansa, Easy Jet, Vodafone and Old Mutual.
Our client terms include a comprehensive confidentiality agreement between you and AVirtual.
We restrict access to client data
We operate strict folder permissions protocols to restrict access to clients data to the dedicated accountant/PA and their “buddy”.
All our PAs are subject to robust, broad non-disclosure agreements covering everything they do at AVirtual.
Effective office security
The weak link in many organisations’ security is the physical office space – we control the working environment and access to it very carefully.
We maintain data access logs
We track all data use, and as a result it is possible to immediately identify the cause of any data loss, which is acknowledged to act as a strong deterrent.
We encrypt data
We keep all stored data in secure environments where it is encrypted to prevent data loss in the event of a failure in sharing practices.
We monitor and audit our team
We regularly check the data security practices of the team and take immediate action whenever there are any shortcomings.
We train our team to be secure
We train our team to be sensitive to data issues, and to work hard to maintain client data and confidentiality.
