We take protecting data seriously. Sift Science maintains compliance with the SOC 2 framework. Our annual SOC 2 Type 2 assessment tests our security process and controls against the SOC 2 security framework. It provides both Sift Science, and more importantly our customers, with an independent, third-party assurance that we are taking the appropriate steps to protect our systems and our customers’ data.


We protect your data

Sift Science protects customer information through data encryption in transit and at rest. We restrict access to our production systems and require those with access to authenticate using a VPN and 2-factor authentication. Our service is hosted on Amazon Web Services (AWS). AWS offers 24x7 surveillance, security logs, and multi-factor authentication. You can learn about AWS's security controls by visiting the AWS Cloud Compliance website.


We maintain the quality of the data you send us

We encourage customers to deliberate internally and consult our solutions team to assess what data will be most effective in preventing fraud. Data subjects and customers can always email for more information about how we use this information to prevent online fraud.
