So you have heard about this very direct way to forward superannuation contributions called Superconnect. But, you may ask, how secure is this method of paying superannuation contributions?
What you are really asking is whether all these employee details we will be entering into the system can be hijacked by anyone else on the web.
I can assure you that the Superconnect service is just as secure as doing Internet banking. Superconnect uses the same bank strength encryption as any bank uses. You can log onto the Superconnect service using Microsoft Internet Explorer, Firefox or Safari. When you do log on, make sure that the little padlock graphic is showing to indicate that you are working securely online.
So, in short, Superconnect makes it easy for employers to make contributions using a standard browser via an Internet connection. Access to Superconnect is protected by bank-strength 128-bit encryption.
Need we say anything more about security? Yes, there are some other aspects to security that we will mention in another entry to this blog. Next we will talk about links in emails we send to customers.
