TECH LOCK, Inc. announces VeriFacts, Inc. a trusted partner and invaluable resource for creditors, student loan entities, buyers, agencies, and law firms has completed their TECH LOCK® Certified assessment to validate their Service Provider compliance with applicable federal and state laws by ARM Industry security professionals. TECH LOCK® Certified is a comprehensive holistic data security audit, performed by ARM Industry-centric information security professionals, combining multiple regulatory and industry standard control objectives into a single assessment.

“In today’s data breach-aware world it is critical to select the right partner for an independent third party audit,” says Andrew House, chief information security officer and vice president of information technology at VeriFacts. “That is why VeriFacts selected TECH LOCK; their expertise in the ARM Industry and the thoroughness of the TECH LOCK® Certified assessment is unmatched. Our TECH LOCK® Certified status shows that VeriFacts has exceeded industry-defined requirements and is appropriately managing risk, and places us in an elite group of organizations that have earned this certification. This designation comes after an extensive process that involved assessing more than 250 IT security checks across multiple areas of VeriFacts.”

“VeriFacts services clients in multiple industries with complex regulatory requirements,” says Todd Langusch, TECH LOCK’s president and chief executive officer.  “To exceed those requirements and achieve TECH LOCK® Certified status, VeriFacts implemented a comprehensive and robust security-based infrastructure around its application services, facilities, administrative policies and all aspects of its technical operations. As the CIO of a large Debt Buyer and an ARM Industry consultant, I have seen service providers try to get by with providing a PCI DSS quarterly scan certificate or misusing a report focused on the internal controls around financial reporting (SSAE 16) and not data security. VeriFacts is in an elite group of service providers that can say and show that their controls were assessed and validated against multiple requirements. These include but not limited to FISMA, HIPAA, ISO 27002, PCI DSS, GLBA Safeguards Rule, Massachusetts 201 CMR 17.00, Nevada NRS 603a, and more.”
