"Although our information technology (IT) procedures were always robust and conformed to the highest standards, this compliance will instill even greater confidence in our clients. They trust us with their confidential data and we take that trust very seriously" said Farrukh Baig, VP of IT. "Currently we are in compliance with almost all federal and state regulatory requirements. This was a step up to ensure additional comfort."
