PING security and data protection

PING is a secure, private messaging channel within your organisation. It can be used for sending secure messages between people in your organisation outside of crisis situations.

Messages are SSL encrypted (256bit) in transit between devices. Images and videos sent in encrypted messages are sent as link messages rather than actual images. The link leads the receiver to the Crises Control secure cloud, preserving their security.

By sending images and videos as links Crises Control complies with data protection regulations such as GDPR, which require that PII is protected from unauthorised distribution.

FAQ's - About Ping

In order to comply with GDPR rules requiring PII to be protected from unauthorized or unconsented distribution, messages are encrypted before they are transmitted from device to device.

They are accessed via the link sent to the message receiver.
