Chicago – Tech Lock, Inc. announces the joining of Asset Recovery Solutions, LLC to its Tech Lock Certified™ program. Tech Lock Certified™ is a holistic compliance assessment, combining multiple regulatory and industry standard control objectives into a single audit to provide the agency cost savings and provide their clients with a true data security compliance validation. Tech Lock Certified™ provides clients with an assessment of an organizations data security and compliance controls.

Creditors and clients are continuing to require agencies, such as ARS to show proof of compliance with standards or laws such as PCI DSS, HIPAA/HITECH, GLBA, ISO 27002, Massachusetts 201 CMR 17.00: Standards for the Protection of Personal Information of Residents of the Commonwealth, and Nevada’s Personal Information Law NRS 603a. For agencies of all sizes, it requires time and resources  to achieve compliance as well as a 3rd party assessments to validate compliance.

“Over the past year we have seen an increase in client security questionnaires and requests for our independent 3rd party security assessment results,” says Tony Eshaya, ARS’s COO. “While we have spent significant time and money on our infrastructure and information security, our number one goal is to ensure we are protecting consumer data while it resides on our systems and the Tech Lock Certified™ program provides us with the expert external validation against our technology processes, policies and procedures to meet our own internal compliance goals and our external client requirements.”

“Unfortunately, for agencies and service providers within the ARM industry, there isn’t a uniform data security standard, law or regulation that creditors, clients or states recognize,” says Todd Langusch, Tech Lock’s Chief Executive Officer. “Along with the misinterpretation of SAS70 being a data security standard, is the primary reason why Tech Lock created the Tech Lock Certified™ program; to assist organizations of all sizes with achieving their compliance goals in one assessment versus continual audits through the year based on different client requirements.”
