Our Career Site Security Features

With security features built-in from the ground up, our platform works non-stop to protect your careers site from cyber security attacks. From distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks to malware to SEO spam, we’re always testing and updating our security features to stay one step ahead. Not only does this keep your careers site safe and secure, but it also protects candidate data and defends visitors from malicious attacks.

Keep your careers site safe and secure — our server scanner constantly searches for malware, vulnerabilities and other security issues, which means we can stop DDoS attacks, blocklisting and vulnerability exploits before they happen.

Robust Data Protection

Safeguard candidate data from phishing schemes and malicious redirects, maintaining the highest levels of data integrity.

SSL Certificate Integration

Secure the transfer of data from your site to external servers, ensuring end-to-end data protection.

Timely Software Updates

Stay ahead of vulnerabilities with automatic updates to plugins and core software, minimizing security risks.

What Can Threaten Your Careers Site?

The modern threat landscape continuously changes, requiring expertise and a robust cybersecurity posture. Our secure website design meets these challenges head-on to help stop numerous threats in their tracks.

Data Breaches

Data breaches are a primary cybersecurity threat for organizations of all sizes. The average cost of a data breach in the United States in 2022 was $9.44 million, more than double the global average of $4.35 million. When a breach occurs, it can also result in fines or legal actions for violations of data privacy laws.

HappyDance proactively spots those intrusion attempts to help keep you compliant and safeguard sensitive candidate data.

DDoS Attacks

DDoS attacks occur when a bad actor overwhelms a company's server with bot traffic that uses all the available bandwidth. This excess consumption blocks routine users, making applicants unable to view or access your site.

We use the latest and most advanced security tools to help prevent these cyberattacks and keep your careers site online.


Phishing happens when external actors send emails appearing to be from legitimate companies. They often spoof a company's website or email addresses to make the message contents seem valid. The goal is to trick users into clicking on a link and providing sensitive information like passwords. Once the bad actor has those credentials, they can gain unauthorized access to your systems and data.

Our platform has sophisticated solutions to detect and stop phishing attacks.

Malware and Ransomware

Malware is malicious software or code used to damage a website or take it completely offline. Google's technology detects malware on websites and alerts users to potential harm when they visit an affected page. Seeing that warning could create a negative perception in job seekers' minds and dissuade them from applying. Search engines also sometimes block an infected website, meaning candidates can't find you to apply. Like malware, ransomware is malicious software designed to take over your website. The bad actor holds your site hostage and demands a ransom payment to release it. Many times, they leave your site disabled even if you pay. The additional downtime only adds to the costs. HappyDance invests in 24/7 system monitoring for security against malware and ransomware threats.

SEO Spam

Backlinks are essential to successful search engine optimization (SEO) because they help create authority and value. Search engines generally rank pages with many backlinks higher because they signal that users find the information helpful. SEO spam is the practice of accessing a website and using it to create bulk backlinks to another site through automation. The technique artificially inflates the linked-to site's organic rankings, spurring more traffic. In some cases, threat actors may also infect sites with spam malware to cause further damage. Our cybersecurity experts have developed robust security measures against SEO spam into our platform's framework for peace of mind.
