This year, we are transitioning LinkedIn to default HTTPS for all LinkedIn members and customers. Learn more here. We encrypt data in transit. Certain sensitive data is also encrypted at rest, including credit card information and passwords. We only store a cryptographic hash of your LinkedIn password, so even we do not know your password.
We design our networks with security in mind. This includes building in intrusion detection, firewalls, monitoring and general hardening. We also regularly conduct penetration testing and threat modeling to ensure our network is properly secured and up to date.
Internal & third party testing and assessments
To ensure that the products and services we deliver include appropriate security safeguards, we’re constantly evaluating our safety measures that we include in our products and services. This isn’t a one time effort before a product launches, it’s ongoing. We regularly test both internal and external sources— and make alterations when needed.
We actively monitor to detect for intrusions into our systems. Each system has a dedicated team that looks for anomalies and alerts. These teams can swiftly respond to issues as they arise.
