A Continued Commitment to Data Protection and Elevated Security Standards

In today’s hyper-connected, information-saturated world, data breaches pose a major threat. Harvard Business Review reports a concerning 20% spike in data breaches – incidents where hackers illicitly access personal information – from 2022 to 2023, doubling victim counts worldwide. Meanwhile, ransomware attacks continue to surge. As cyber threats evolve with increasing sophistication, the demand for strong data security measures across all industries has never been more urgent. 

United Direct Solutions (UDS) has proactively strengthened its data security framework [if website page is updated] with the following certifications:

HITRUST: Risk Management 

Recognizing the need to protect sensitive data, UDS has recently renewed its HITRUST Risk-Based (r2) 2-year Certification. The HITRUST certification, which encompasses federal and state regulations, standards and frameworks, signifies UDS’s unwavering commitment to effectively managing risk by meeting regulatory HITRUST compliance and industry-defined requirements. The HITRUST Assurance Program, with its comprehensive and adaptable framework of security controls, addresses the challenges posed by security and data protection. This demonstrates that United Direct Solutions has met demanding regulatory compliance and industry-defined requirements as a HITRUST certified company, ensuring appropriate risk-management strategies.

 

SOC 2 Type 2: Verified Security

Following a comprehensive audit, UDS has an SOC 2 Type 2 certification to ensure adherence to all financial and data management compliance requirements mandated by the Federal Government. These certifications cater to clients seeking detailed insights into a service organization’s internal controls, covering areas such as security, availability, processing integrity, confidentiality and privacy. These reports serve as indispensable tools for oversight, vendor management, internal governance, risk management, and regulatory compliance. They offer cost savings by streamlining partner vetting processes and mitigate the risk of non-compliance and sanctions.

 

ISO 9001: Quality Commitment

United Direct Solutions further demonstrates its dedication to excellence by holding an ISO 9001:2015 certification. This internationally recognized standard ensures UDS adheres to rigorous quality management practices, delivering products and services that surpass client expectations while meeting stringent quality standards.
