Knoxville, TN —WiredPRNews.com Press Release Service June 24, 2009 — Responding to the requirements of the Federal Trade Commission’s Fair and Accurate Transaction Act Red Flags Rule, the Nexus Group (formerly ISDN.net) enlisted the assistance of Lionheart Assurance Solutions, LP to aid in the establishment of an ongoing program to meet federal requirements.
Lionheart Assurance Solutions, LP provided support with preparation of the company’s new sensitive information policy. Extensive training was provided to the employees by a Certified Identity Theft Risk Management trainer to make them aware of possible Identity Theft issues that could arise without “due care” for customer and employee Personal Identifiable Information.
President Jerry Dunlap and Vice President Frank Platt led a lively discussion with the staff, who helped to highlight possible areas of concern. Working together, they were able to identify the areas to focus on in meeting the requirements of the Red Flags Rule.
Platt said his desire was for “The Nexus Group to be able to meet the compliance requirements of all their customers and especially those in the Financial, Healthcare, Government and Educational sectors.” The company is taking the direction of the Federal Trade Commission seriously when it directs all employers to create a “culture of security” among its employees as it relates to sensitive data. Platt added, “Our customers are finding their (FTC’s) compliance model is demanding their business data is maintained in an environment where confidentiality, integrity and availability is foremost. They must know that their data is secure, reliable and available all the time no matter the situation.”
To achieve their customers’ objectives, Nexus Group has developed high availability data centers offering cloud computing and virtual server platforms, and redundant infrastructure systems including multiple fiber/internet carriers, electrical generators, HVAC systems and advanced security measures with security monitoring and disaster avoidance services. “Our team of certified information security specialists is focused on giving our customers a complete picture of risk and risk avoidance measures,” Platt says.
“We are proud to be associated with such a forward thinking and cutting edge company like Nexus Group,” said Jack Bufkin, Regional Vice President for Lionheart Assurance Solutions in TN.
