Data Security

Backups & Data Recovery

We take security very serious at IdeaJudge.

We know our customers trust us with their team’s important data, and we use industry best practices to keep it secure.

Everything stored on IdeaJudge is backed up daily. In the event of a data-loss we can restore from backup within an hour.

Encryption In Transit and At Rest

When using IdeaJudge, all your data is sent via HTTPS. That means your data (e.g. passwords) are encrypted so it can't be intercepted by hackers. Both our primary database and all backups are encrypted. All communication across data centres is over SSL.


IdeaJudge runs on infrastructure that has fault-tolerance and redundancy built in. If incidents do arise, we keep our customers informed and work hard to resolve them as quickly as possible.

Hosting & Service Providers

We consider security as primary criteria when choosing service providers to work with. Our providers are SOC 2 certified.

Our credit card processor, Stripe, has been audited by a PCI-certified auditor, and is certified to PCI Service Provider Level 1. This is the most stringent level of certification available.


Accounts are set up with email. We verify that email addresses belong to you and your employees who join our services, and we store your password using the industry recommended hash function (bcrypt).

Access to Customer Data and Audit Policies

We have strict policies in place regarding IdeaJudge employee access to data you store on IdeaJudge. From time to time, certain employees may need to access customer data to diagnose and resolve issues. Whenever practical, we notify the customer and obtain written consent before doing so. We have granular audit logs in place to ensure that any access to customer data is logged.

Continuous Improvement

All new product features and internal processes are peer-reviewed and evaluated for their security impact before they are released to production. We strive to continuously monitor and improve our security practices in response to industry changes and customer feedback.
