ReSource Pro provides outsourcing services to independent agents in the United States using a service center in China. They were recently awarded the ISO/IEC 27001 information security management certification from the International Organization for Standardization. This certificate is recognized across data-centric industries as external verification that the business in question has adopted rigid security standards in order to better defend its own operations and all forms of client data from unsanctioned access and use.
Making sure agency client information is secure is essential so that a data security breach does not create serious liabilities such as E&O liabilities, lawsuits, criminal charges, an immediate loss of business, and long-term damage to an agency’s public profile.
ReSource Pro utilized several consulting firms to confirm its adherence to all ISO 27001 standards over a two-year period. The company will also be subject to annual on-site audits in which an independent risk management firm will work to verify the company’s continued compliance with established guidelines and recommend any relevant system upgrades.
CEO Dan Epstein explained, “ReSource Pro has always maintained a rigorous information security management system, but this certification represents our investment in assuring the safety of our clients’ data in an increasingly strict regulatory environment. We now have a universally accepted third-party certification that places us among the industry’s most reliably secure insurance process outsourcing providers.”
