Pension e-guide and Pension e-news Requires Secure Access
March 24, 2012
Edmonton - Access to Pension e-news and Pension e-guide now requires secure login. Alberta Pensions Services Corporation (APS) has secured online access for employer services, and registration is required for:
- Pension e-news (the employer newsletter); and
- Pension e-guide (the employer manual).
"Moving to secure online administration protects confidential and proprietary pension administration information," says Troy Diakow, Executive Director, Employer & Member Services. "It limits the risk of other individuals accessing or misinterpreting information intended for employers."
A secure website also protects members and employers through limiting the ability of social engineering and phishing schemes (where outside parties may recreate and use false/malicious documents that may appear to be from APS, in an attempt to obtain personal and financial information without an individual's knowledge or consent).
Registered users will require a password to access employer-specific content, and current Employer Online Services (EOS) users will be asked to log in to these newly secured websites using their EOS username and password.
