Security and Service Continuity
First Global Credit uses enterprise quality security and processes to protect our customers and their assets. This starts with the physical security of our systems which are maintained in Tier III, financial grade data centres. Our servers are mirrored for resilience and backed up in 15 minute increments to guard against infection from undocumented viruses. We also maintain ongoing end of the month snap shot archives to meet most regulatory compliant environments.
Logs are maintained of all account changes and every trade is time and date stamped and archived so that any question that arises concerning trade fills can be confirmed.
The website is secured by a banking grade SSL certificate with Site Lock. SiteLock scans the First Global site for security gaps and detects malware infections that hackers use to steal information, infect customers or divert traffic and removes them before it can impact our customers.
Withdrawals are protected through 2 step authentication to guard against asset theft.
We recognize that the Internet is a rapidly changing environment and we strive to keep step by constantly improving the security of our processes and systems. Please contact support if you have any questions about the measures we use to maintain the protection of your assets and privacy.
