Cyber security

Scientell treats cybersecurity as an utmost priority because of the often confidential nature of client files and our work. We seek to protect staff and clients, IT equipment and files from harm, damage and loss associated with accidental or malicious incidents.

The company uses premium DropBox for our files and Digital Pacific for our website and emails. Both suppliers use AES 128-bit encryption, which is a data/file encryption technique that is one of the most secure methods used in most modern encryption algorithms and technologies. 128-bit encryption is considered to be logically unbreakable.
