Direct Technologies Achieves SOC 2 and HITRUST CSF Certifications
ATLANTA — August 24, 2017 — Direct Technologies (DTI), a leader in developing, producing, managing, and distributing mission critical communications for customers, announced its technology-based solutions have earned Certified status for information security by the Service Organizational Controls 2 (SOC 2) and Health Information Trust (HITRUST) Alliance. Direct Technologies is one of the few printing and fulfillment companies to achieve both critical certifications, which meet key regulations and requirements for protecting and securing sensitive private information.
A SOC 2 examination is widely recognized, because it represents that a service organization has been through an evaluation of their control activities as they relate to the applicable Trust Services Principles and Criteria. A Type I report not only includes the service organization's system description, but also includes detailed testing of the design of the service organization's controls. SOC 2 is designated as an acceptable method for a user entity's management to obtain assurance about service organization internal controls over Security, Availability, Processing Integrity, Confidentiality, and Privacy without conducting additional assessments.
"DTI's latest achievement of TYPE 1 SOC 2 certification, in conjunction with our HITRUST CSF Certification, provides the highest level of validation and demonstrates our commitment to securing customer data without sacrificing the need for speed and Direct Marketing flexibility," says Jeff Meyers, director of information technology systems, ISCO, at DTI.
DTI's HITRUST CSF Certification validates their solutions, EX2010, SFTP, Sql2012, and ProdSQL, have met industry-defined requirements and is appropriately managing risk. HITRUST Certification places DTI in an elite group of organizations worldwide that have earned this certification. By including federal and state regulations, standards and frameworks, and incorporating a risk-based approach, the HITRUST CSF helps organizations address these challenges through a comprehensive and flexible framework of prescriptive and scalable security controls.
"HITRUST has been working with the industry to ensure the appropriate information protection requirements are met when sensitive health information is accessed or stored in a cloud environment. By taking the steps necessary to obtain HITRUST CSF Certified status, Direct Technologies is distinguished as an organization that people can count on to keep their information safe," notes Ken Vander Wal, chief compliance officer, HITRUST.
