Corporate Commitment

A Company-wide Commitment to Security

To effectively address your account holders’ security concerns, you need a comprehensive approach to security. Any one component of our Integrated Security Process can enhance your account holders’ security — but, when used together, all components provide an exceptional level of protection from risk.

At Harland Clarke, we’ve maximized our expertise in quality practices to build a superior system of corporate-wide security processes. This is evidenced by Harland Clarke's adherence to ISO17799.

Our security practices include:

  • Quality-control personnel who consider the impact of events such as equipment malfunctions and schedule changes not just on quality, but on security as well
  • A centralized security organization led by a chief security officer and comprising full-time, dedicated employees who oversee physical security, incident management, internal/external audits, regulatory compliance, account holder privacy and data security
  • Extensive background checks and drug testing of new employees
