Heart Bleed – Update

HeartbleedLast week, a major security threat named “Heartbleed” was in the news. This is related to a bug in the encryption technology used on the Internet for usernames, passwords, and emails.

We want to let you know that account information remains secure and America’s Job Exchange sites were unaffected by this bug.

At America’s Job Exchange, the security of the site is a top priority. The servers our sites run on are hosted in a SSAE-16 certified data center where access to the servers is very restricted. The facility provides redundant power and high-speed connectivity. Additionally, the servers are monitored 24×7 for hardware and system issues, as well as, security intrusions.   All of this to provide our seekers and employers access to the data they need, when they need it.

While the America’s Job Exchange sites were not impacted by this bug, it’s a good opportunity to review some good general practices around passwords:

  1. Don’t use the same password for all of your accounts.
  2. Choose a good password that will be hard to crack.
  3. Change your password with some frequency.
  4. If using a shared account, change the password when someone leaves the company.

We are here to address any concerns or questions you may have. Please feel free to reach out to our support team at customercare@americasjobexchange.com .
