The combination of a SSAE 16 report plus a SysTrust certification provides assurance to you that BoardLink offers the highest standard of service, whilst ensuring the utmost security and integrity of your data.

This secure online environment removes the need to send sensitive materials via courier, email or fax and, because authentication protocols ensure that only authorized people have access, there is no risk of your Board materials being lost or stolen. All information is encrypted so that it cannot be hacked or breached.
