Peace of mind for you, comfort for those left behind.
Gregson & Associates have implemented an online digital asset Vault. It is a highly encrypted and secure cloud storage platform where you keep all your digital records. In the event of your death, we quickly and securely deliver these assets to the loved ones you selected.
Do you know what happens to your photos or passwords when you die?
While it may be confronting to think about, we all possess countless digital assets. The Vault helps you store and protect all this data in one secure place, and when the time comes, we will safely distribute these items to your loved ones. We can’t see any of your sensitive data (unless you provide us access) and you can choose who individually receives what.
The security of your digital assets is maintained using three layers of encryption, and OWSAP level 3 requirements. Each user’s data is encrypted between their computer and ourservers (SSL) then individually encrypted, first with their ownunique key, secondly encrypted using the application key, and lastly encrypted with a database key.
Should any piece of our infrastructure be compromised, your data is still safe, as the key is spread over separate application resources.
We also maintain a list of trusted devices, log all changes and who made them, and every time you log in, a single-use code is also messaged to you for use in conjunction with your password meaning if a hacker got a hold of your login details, they still would not be able to gain access.
Release Your Data
Your lawyer will, upon viewing your death certificate, trigger the release process within the software.
The software will attempt to get in touch with you via email and phone. Should it be unable to speak with you, it will then speak to your confidants (people you select within the application whom youtrust) and ask them for their confirmation regarding your death too.
Should all your confidants (and your lawyer) unanimously agree, your data will be released within 30 days.
If there is any disagreement, the releasing process is paused, and we manually step in to speak with all parties to determine why there is a disagreement.
When we pass away, executors and beneficiaries can no longer just divert the snail mail or go through a filing cabinet in the office. These days, half of our lives are digital. Our email accounts contain invoices, bills, receipts, password resets and communications. Our computers contain important legal documents. Our phones contain thousands of photos and videos, treasured memories and notes. We have social media accounts, online share trading platforms and websites.
What was once a simple process is now a painful and drawn-out endeavor. By organising your digital estate, you can be a hero to your loved ones and save them months (and sometimes years) of stress and confusion.
