Ongoing automated and manual security audits are routinely performed by our audit partners Sec3 and MadShield. Automated audits are performed for every PR and security issues must be resolved before merging into the main branch. Manual ongoing audits are initiated for changes above a specific threshold and security issues must be resolved before merging into the main branch.

Large one-off audits are also performed when there are large changes to the code or functionality as detailed below.
