Ontario Systems, a leading receivables technology and services provider, has renewed its certification across four security standards – SSAE-16, PCI-DSS, PA-DSS, and ISO 27001 – the organization announced today, emphasizing its ongoing commitment to customer safety, stability, and risk aversion. The company originally achieved those certifications as early as 2006.
“Our customers have come under significant pressure to manage their suppliers, and validate them for compliance with the same laws, regulations, and standards they themselves are mandated to follow,” says Rick Clark, Corporate Security Manager at Ontario Systems. “Our own initiatives are designed to proactively help clients meet those requirements, mitigate risk, and continue our 30+-year track record of integrity and innovation in the ARM and healthcare receivables industries.”
Each certification has its own history and specific requirements, including:
Audits to test for existing financial control activities per the Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SSAE-16)
Controls surrounding the storage, transmission, and processing of payment cardholder data (PCI-DSS)
Guidelines for how specific payment processing hardware and software stores, transmits, and processes cardholder data (PA-DSS)
Elements necessary to establish, implement, operate, monitor, review, maintain, and improve a documented Information Security Management System (ISO 27001)
“Ontario Systems clients rightly expect us to protect their information in accordance with applicable contracts, laws, and regulations,” Clark concludes. “Our ongoing commitment to the most stringent security standards ensures that objective is met.”
“Compliance initiatives like these provide us with a heightened incentive to proactively, and relentlessly improve who we are as a company, and what we do for our customers,” says Ron Fauquher, Ontario Systems CEO. “We take security as seriously as the people we serve. It’s for that reason we will continue to move forward with those objectives, to create a brighter future for everyone across the industries in which we operate.”
