SIMM Associates works hard to protect the information of our clients and their customers. As part of our commitment to data security, SIMM Associates has continually earned security certifications to demonstrate our compliance with the most rigorous security standards. Most recently the SIMM Associates team completed the renewal of their SSAE16 (SOC1), PCI-DSS and ISO 27002-2013/HIPPA certifications.

“Data security is a top priority for our company and we are excited to have earned these prestigious certifications once again” said Chief Operating Officer Jeff Simendinger. “We understand our responsibility to consumers and continue to make significant investments into our people, processes and technology to keep us on the cutting edge of data security.”

As Receivables Management industry leaders, SIMM Associates holds themselves to a higher standard than what is required. This commitment to data security is validated by a third-party auditor as part of the process of achieving the SSAE16, PCI-DSS and ISO 27002-2013/HIPPA certifications. SIMM Associates was subjected to detailed audits for each certification.

“We are proud to have earned these data security certifications once again” explained Director of Information Technology Don Newcomb. “Earning these designations is another validation of the hard work that our team has done to create systems and processes designed to protect client and consumer information” he continued.
