Data Security

APB data is kept secure and confidential with user access authenticated by AIST based on a formal participation agreement. Licensed companies upload their technical data into the APB, which then permits the comparison of industry-wide performance characteristics for further analysis to identify opportunities for improvement.

Data security is provided through the use of individual login accounts, the use of secure socket layer (SSL) connections, and other system-wide security settings. All data is aggregated where necessary for confidentiality and to comply with anti-trust law relative to market information systems.
