(May 19, 2015) Raleigh, NC – Storr Records Management, Inc., a Raleigh-based full service records storage and information management center, recently received PRISM Privacy Plus certification based on a third-party audit of physical, administrative, and technology safeguards in the records management industry, as set by PRISM International. Only 21 companies in the world have achieved this certification, with Storr being the only company in the Triangle.
“This certification takes Storr Records Management to the highest level of performance and security for our records customers,” said Tom Vande Guchte, CEO of Storr Office Environments. “By completing the audit, Storr can now provide an independent review of our controls and processes that support our commitment to our clients.”
To achieve Privacy Plus certification a company must undergo a third-party audit of internal controls to meet a set of objectives specifically designed to ensure information privacy. The control objectives have been established by PRISM International and must be met by all Privacy Plus participants.
In crafting the certification criteria more than 10 regulatory rules and laws impacting records and information management outsourcing operations were considered, including HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) , Gramm Leach Bliley, PCI Data Security Standard, Red Flags Rule, FACTA (Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions Act), FERPA (Family Education Right and Privacy Act), Sarbanes Oxley, Canada’s PIPEDA (Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act) and the European Data Protection Directive, according to PRISM.
To complete the certification, Storr Records Management underwent a thorough, company-wide audit which reviewed company policies, procedures, employment records, equipment and security. The audit examined critical areas of data security including building facility access, vendor screening, and employee background checks and drug testing.
