BidPrime Quarterly Edition: 11, 2018 – October

by | Oct 31, 2018 | BidPrime News

In our quarterly newsletter, we take a look at recent issues that are important to public sector business. Also, we take the opportunity to introduce our BidPrime team.

Important Info About Cybersecurity

Josh Schwartzbeck, our Head of Technology, shares an update and reminds everyone to follow sound cyber hygiene practices.To our valued clients:In June 2018, we emailed a security announcement regarding our action against a sustained campaign by a competitor to harm BidPrime’s business. This competitor obtained our trade secrets, through fraudulent free trial accounts and unauthorized commandeering of a handful of customer accounts, by using their credentials. As of today, we are still working towards recourse through the federal court process to ensure a long term solution in safeguarding the protection of our customers’ credentials and our comprehensive bid data.

In light of new evidence and further analysis since the orchestrated breaches, BidPrime filed an amended complaint against Smartprocure/GovSpend/GovQuote.

We would like to reiterate our commitment to ensuring your privacy and security through a few useful reminders:

  •   BidPrime will never ask you for your username and password.
  •   Please do not share your username and password with anyone.
  •   If you need additional user emails or logins, please contact us and we can assist adding users to your BidPrime account.
  •   Exercise caution in forwarding BidPrime’s bid alerts and bid specification tickets.

If anyone asks or has asked for your BidPrime login credentials (username, password, or other private data) please email us at myprivacy@bidprime.com.

We look forward to continue serving you by providing the most comprehensive and timely access to government bids and RFPs.

My Best,

Josh Schwartzbeck / Head of Technology / BidPrime
