Security incidents are serious concerns at Revv that are dealt with utmost sincerity. We encourage our users and employees to be well aware and careful of phishing emails, spam, unsafe websites, etc. And report any suspicious activity, incidents, or concerns as soon as possible. Reporting such concerns act as the ultimate protection shield against cybercrimes.
Here are some possible signs of emails and websites that could possibly lead to security incidents-
Fraudulent emails - You might receive a fraudulent email on Revv’s behalf asking you to click a link or share particular information. Hover over the link in the email which will show the destination you will reach if you click it. All links from Revv will redirect you to Revv.so domain.
Email attachments - Email notifications sent from Revv for eSigning a document will not have any file attachments. Make sure you do not click or download such files on your device.
False sense of urgency - Creating a false sense of urgency is the most common trait of any phishing email. Even in case of urgency, you will be specifically contacted by your account manager that you have been in touch with since you became a Revv user.
Spelling errors in email - Fraudulent emails will contain a lot of spelling mistakes, missing words, grammatical errors, gaps in logic, etc so as to avoid detection by spam filters.
Unsafe sites - You will see “https” before any safe website (in their URL). If you don’t see that in the website link, you are likely not on a secure site.
There are chances of someone impersonating or misusing your Revv account. You need to immediately change your password and report the incident to the incident reporting team.
If it’s suspicious, you tell us!
There is a specific team dedicated to incident reporting and can be reached out on - email@example.com
Knowing who is doing what and the ability to control the accessibility of users within the system is important. Revv equips users with the capability to manage the accessibility of documents, accounts and track document status with timestamps -
Role-based authority - While it’s critical to keep your data safe, one also needs to ensure who can access that data. As a user, Revv lets you customize access settings for your documents, allowing you to manage who can view which document and what actions can they take. Revv also adds layers of safety net by allowing users to enable two-factor authentication for every document transaction that takes place in the Revv ecosystem.
Audit trail - Every document in Revv comes with an activity tracker that keeps the real-time status tracker that lists activity like - who opened the document, how many times was the document opened with exact time and date, who eSigned the document, and who hasn’t. You can check the activity tracker when the document is in the creation stage and when it is sent for signature too. This non-editable trail records every action in the document and can be defensible proof of access and signature.
Revv engages qualified (including CISA, CISSP, and CEH certified) and experienced external security professionals on a need basis to ensure all safety standards are met and assess the need for any further implementation or improvement of security measures put in place.
Revv also conducts Information Security and Privacy training for all new employees with refreshers annually.
