JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (PRWEB) November 15, 2017
LAUNCHER.SOLUTIONS (Launcher), creator of appTRAKER Loan Origination System, announced today it has successfully met all security requirements for its Experian Independent Third Party Assessment certification. This certification is an annual assessment of a third party's ability to protect Experian provided consumer data. Launcher is one of the few businesses with a loan origination platform specific to subprime automotive lending to have earned the EI3PA certification.
Launcher's appTRAKER Loan Origination System was created for subprime automotive lenders and places a high priority on the security of consumer information. “This stringent third party assessment, audit and certification of our security operation validates the maturity of our infrastructure, our solution, and our team,” said Nikh Nath, President of Launcher. “Our goal is to be always ahead of the pack in terms of technology, security, and scalability.”
Automotive lenders rely on their vendors to protect their consumers' sensitive data by implementing controls, policies, and procedures that are needed to reduce the risk of a data breach. Said Nath, “Considering the severity and vast amount of data breaches that has occurred in the past few years, Launcher has chosen to demonstrate its commitment to data security with the EI3PA certification that is most relevant to our credit industry.”
The EI3PA standard is based on the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) Level 1 standard and mandates that all organizations have a qualified security assessor (QSA) perform a third-party audit to demonstrate compliance. The security practices cover not just Experian data but all Non Public Information (NPI) including customer names, Social Security Numbers, Addresses, other data obtained from other credit bureaus, and any other data not considered non-public. Assessments of the effectiveness of several areas are analyzed including but not limited to:
- Firewall integrity protecting affected data systems
- Physical security
- Policies and documentation
- Encryption controls verifications
- Stored data protection
- System and processes security
- Identity management and access controls
