This land is your land. This land is my land.
It’s not just an American anthem, it’s YOUR property! So ask yourself the essential question… is your “land” secure? Certainly, no buyer wants to think that his/her assets have been compromised, but how do you ensure that your personal information remains protected during a mortgage/banking/title transaction?
Step 1: choose a title team that stands ahead of its competitors in offering the most effective internal and external safeguards in the field.
Vantage Point Title works tirelessly to maintain the highest level of compliance with State, Federal and Industry Standards and Regulations. In fact, VPT has sustained its Statement on Standards for Attestation Engagements (SSAE) No. 16 (formerly SAS 70) for nearly 4 years, 3 years before government guidelines changed to mandate the practice.
So what does it all mean? The American Land Title Association (ALTA), a national trade association and voice of the title insurance industry, created best practices to help members highlight policies and procedures the industry exercises to protect lenders and consumers. Vantage Point Title not only meets, but exceeds the required security compliance and certifications.
Each year, an independent, licensed 3rd party public accounting firm, who is required to follow specific guidance related to planning, execution, and supervision of the audit procedures and the reporting of the results, examines VPT’s controls and processes. This helps VP identify opportunities for improvement in many areas of our business. Along with regular network and security penetration tests and development of a failsafe “Disaster and Business Continuity Plan,” VPT boasts the highest level of security for our clients and their data.
From California to the New York Island.
No matter the location or the nature of the transaction, take your financial life into your own hands by becoming educated to the importance of security in the buying/selling process. When your very personal data is being exchanged from one financial institution to the next, know the policies and procedures to ensure your “land,” your information, stays YOURS.
