Software News - Security, Backups and Other Nerdy-But-Necessary Stuff

By Jay Moonah, Noisy Apricot / Vice President, Marketing

With recent stories about major retailers such as Target and Neiman Marcus having millions of credit card records stolen, you’d be forgiven for wondering if your data was safe with any company, particularly one that operates ‘in the cloud’ like Wild Apricot does. While no system is foolproof, we do take security very seriously, and we have undertaken a number of steps to ensure that your information is safe with us.
