Planning for the Transfer of Confidential Data

Matt Henderson:

SecureSafe offer a feature called “Data Inheritance”, which allows you to define any number of “beneficiaries” who can access the files and passwords you store in the system. When you create a beneficiary, SecureSafe generates a PDF file for them, containing a unique access-code along with a description of the procedure for using it to access your account.

So what keeps a beneficiary from accessing your data when they shouldn’t? If a beneficiary attempts to access your SecureSafe account, you, as the account owner, are notified by email and SMS. You then have a configurable amount of time (the “delay period”) in which you can respond, denying the request.
