We get asked a lot about data security. At first glance, this could seem odd. We’re not your typical trench-coat wearing, darkened parking lot loitering, special agents; trading in secrets and sensitive information. But if you dig a little deeper, it actually makes a lot of sense.
Weirdly helps you build databases full of rich, valuable candidate data. For your business, it’s important that this is secure. You don’t want your candidate databases getting into the wrong hands – and neither do the people applying for your roles.
We’ve always been really protective of your data, and now we’ve just added another layer of security.
How does this new integration help with data security?
By implementing ThisData‘s brand new Login Intelligence API, we can track who is logging into your account. If the system notices something unusual, we’ll send you an alert email so you can check whether that person should be allowed access or not.
Think of it like the Facebook security notification. You know the one where you get an email if someone logs into your account using an unknown device? Facebook sends you a message saying “Hey Phyllis, someone in BoraBora just logged into your Facebook account – does this sound right to you?” so you can jump in and block the mystery tropical hacker before they can cause any damage.
Using login intelligence, Weirdly is now protecting your account in the same way.
By tracking how you and your team interact with your Weirdly account, the system builds a profile of what “typical usage” looks like for you. It’s learning what’s normal for your team, based on your own patterns. Then, if it spots activity on your account that falls outside that typical pattern, (like someone accessing your account from a different country or using an unusual device) it’ll trigger a security notification. That’s where you’ll be alerted so you can make sure everything is copacetic.
So you can continue to create screening assessments and collect awesome candidates, knowing there’s an extra layer of security between your data and any strangers trying to get access – where ever they might be in the world.
