TECH LOCK, Inc. announces Automated Collection Services, Inc. (ACSI) a Tennessee based collection company is going for the industry gold standard for ensuring federal and state security compliance with its TECH LOCK® Certified audit. TECH LOCK® Certified is a data security audit, performed by information security professionals combining multiple regulatory and industry standard control objectives into a single comprehensive audit.
Organizations in the ARM industry will generally do one single data security standards audit like SOC 2, ISO 27002, or PCI DSS to meet minimal client due diligence requirements. Security compliance is complex and covers a broad range of activities, including information (financial, healthcare, personnel, etc.), physical (facilities and work areas), systems (networks, servers, and mobile devices), and regulatory governance (FISMA, HIPAA, PCI DSS, Nevada NRS 603a, Massachusetts 201 CMR 17.00 etc). Non-compliance with any of these complex security compliance requirements has several ramifications that affect a number of stakeholders — ACSI, our clients and their consumers, and regulatory bodies. ACSI has therefore taken several steps to ensure broad comprehensive security compliance.
“Security has moved to the forefront of every organization due to advances in technology and the move toward an increasingly complex data environment that includes various parties sharing, transferring, handling, storing, and archiving consumer data,” says Don Taylor, ACSI’s president. “As users and holders of client data, we understand the seriousness of our responsibility to protect client and consumer data and to ensure compliance with all federal and state regulatory mandates as well as our clients’ security requirements. To obtain that assurance, ACSI has started our TECH LOCK® Certified audit. TECH LOCK® Certified is the industry gold standard for ensuring federal and state security compliance.”
“ACSI has taken several steps to ensure broad comprehensive security compliance,” says Todd Langusch, TECH LOCK’s president and chief executive officer. “ACSI has made the necessary infrastructure investments to protect data and to comply with government regulatory mandates, private sector requirements, and consumer demands for confidentiality. TECH LOCK® Certified and ACSI’s security compliance regimen combined exceeds industry standards.”
