This signifies that Ofori and McDonald meet the government’s most stringent security guidelines to support the implementation of and compliance with FISMA.
NIST/FISMA compliance is now mandatory for servicers that work directly with government loans, and by completing the certification McDonald enables its clients to automatically fulfill this requirement. In servicing government-backed mortgages, McDonald’s platform, protects confidential data using sophisticated firewalls. Regular audits of the system ensure the highest level of security for McDonald’s users.
“Since Ofori directly services government loans, they are required to partner with a NIST/FISMA-compliant technology provider, which is extremely rare to find in today’s industry,” said Jim McDonald, founder and president of McDonald Computer Corporation. “Together, McDonald and Ofori took the necessary steps to complete the very involved process, which required two years of effort, to become NIST/FISMA compliant.”
As a requirement of the NIST/FISMA compliance, McDonald maintains a mirrored second server at a separate site for disaster recovery compliance. In an emergency, McDonald can switch its customers to this secondary site within minutes without losing any data and allowing customers to continue their normal online/real-time processing.
McDonald continued, “While our clients face increased regulatory requirements and prepare their businesses for additional rules on the horizon, they can have further assurance knowing that we constantly enhance our platform to help them remain compliant. We enable servicers to handle any loan volume with the greatest efficiency and in the most secure environment. Achieving NIST/FISMA compliance is a testament to our company’s commitment to understanding and acting on our clients’ changing needs.”
