How Do You Know if Your Data Compliance Provider is Certified?

May 18, 2017

The data compliance industry is regulated for customer, state or federal and state requirements and regulations, ensuring the security of customers’ PII data – but how do you know that your data is actually secure with your data compliance provider? Does their website properly display a security logo? Does the provider simply mention their certification in the marketing materials? If so, can you really be sure that your provider is secure?

It’s recently come to our attention that a couple of our competitors may not be entirely honest about their “certifications”: one competitor has removed mention of their certification from their website. Several of our competitors are also SOC 2 certified, which “is specifically designed for service providers storing customer data in the cloud.” We store our data in our secure, Class A security building and not in the cloud because storing data in the cloud may compromise a customers’ data.

So, how can you tell if the certification is real? Well, that’s simple: try to click on the logo and see where it takes you. If it’s not a clickable link, we recommend that you request the documentation provided by the certifying body to verify the certification. If that’s not an option, it may be time to switch providers.

At LifeStatus360, we take security seriously. Our data is housed on-site in a Class A security building, and we recently received a Comprehensive Security Certification from AltiusIT, a third party security auditing firm. When you click on our certification logos, you’ll find a description of the certification from the certifying body.

If your current Death Audit provider is reluctant or unable to provide their certification information, it could be time to consider a different provider.
