Forerunner now makes it easy to securely manage your community's repetitive loss data and control visibility of sensitive data via Personal Identifiable Information permissions. Forerunner has implemented several measures to ensure that sensitive data containing Personal Identifiable Information, such as Repetitive Loss Data, is secure and protected at all times by limiting visibility to only authorized users and limiting administrative management of the data. This data will also never be exposed on public-facing websites, under any circumstances.
Please note that the video below does not reflect real repetitive loss properties and is intended for demonstration purposes only.
Importing Repetitive Loss Data
Forerunner is able to import and geolocate your community's Repetitive Loss Data for your team to manage directly on properties in your account dashboard. To import, Forerunner needs a .csv of the data in the format it is delivered from FEMA. Connect with your Forerunner Customer Success contact for more details on how to send the data securely.
Viewing Repetitive Loss Data and Properties
Users with Personal Identifiable Information (PII) permissions can not only view both account-wide properties with Repetitive Loss and Severe Repetitive Loss warnings, but also view repetitive loss metadata details on an individual property.
Repetitive Loss and Severe Repetitive Loss Warnings
Repetitive Loss Data on Properties
Users with PII permissions will be able to view Repetitive Loss data and metadata on date of losses on individual Property Information Panels. Data will be obfuscated by default on the Property Information Panel and users can click `View Data` to make the data visible to them. To hide again, click `Hide Data` and the metadata will be hidden and blurred.
Personal Identifiable Information (PII) Permissions
Repetitive Loss data contains Personal Identifiable Information (PII) which is highly sensitive and protected by the Privacy Act. While the data will never be shown on public-facing websites, users with `Manager` level permissions will be able to configure which members of their team can view PII.
Managers can view the PII column on their Team settings page to view PII permissions at a high level. To change a user's role, Managers can click `...` to configure the users to either `Cannot view` or `Can view` PII.
Forerunner has implemented several measures to ensure that sensitive data containing Personal Identifiable Information, such as Repetitive Loss Data, is secure and protected at all times by limiting visibility to only authorized users and limiting administrative management of the data. These measures demonstrate our commitment to the highest standards of data security and privacy. Upon import, sensitive data is scrambled in staging and local development environments to ensure that access to Personal Identifiable Information is limited to authorized personnel. Scrambling of data makes certain that in the event of unauthorized personnel gaining access to these environments, they will not be viewing authentic data. Furthermore, Forerunner has implemented authorization controls on users of the software to ensure that only users who are authorized and have a legitimate need to access Personal Identifiable Information are able to do so. This provides an extra layer of protection to sensitive data, reducing the risk of authorized access and data breaches.
