Organizations collecting and protecting cardholder data face an array of regulatory challenges.

Broadspire’s A&H division handles accident and affinity claims. Every year, Broadspire A&H undergoes a stringent audit by CompliancePoint, an independent Quality Security Assessor (QSA), to receive the PCI DSS certification. “Broadspire’s PCI DSS certification as a level 1 service provider signifies its adherence to rigorous data security standards for the protection of sensitive consumer data it handles on behalf of its clients,” states Greg Sparrow, Vice President & General Manager of CompliancePoint’s Information Security practice group.
“The risk this certification mitigates is enormous because of the sensitivity of the data we manage on behalf of our clients,” said Ken Tolson, Broadspire’s Senior Vice President of A&H. “Although some companies do not go through this rigorous compliance process, Broadspire A&H is committed to protecting our clients’ sensitive data, which includes their customers’ information as well.”
