CertainSafe Partners with Express Notary Services to Ensure Data Protection for Mobile Notaries

February 19, 2015

Data security firm CertainSafe announced a partnership with Express Notary Services and Signing Agent School, a provider of mobile notary and notary educational services, which includes notary certification and continuing education across the United States.

With this partnership, Express Notary Services will now carry certification and meet the needs of the proposed regulatory requirements of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), as well as the highest level of data security for non-public personal information (NPI). Each mobile notary has the responsibility to remain and operate in compliance with regulatory requirements and in accordance with ALTA’s Best Practices, the companies said in a release.

“A large-scaled national network of mobile notaries will now be able to send and receive sensitive documents, including all of the communication surrounding the transaction, within a completely safe, secure and compliant environment,” said Kent Nies, CertainSafe chief business officer. “The ‘always on the go’ nature of the mobile notary demands that the highest level of data security capabilities are in place regardless of where they are, what device they are using and what network they access. All these issues are resolved, protected and supported by CertainSafe, protecting not only the data in motion but the data at rest as well.”

Express Notary client and internal documents will be shared and stored with the protection of CertainSafe’s MicroEncrypted file sharing, collaboration and secure messaging technology. Mobile notaries can now offer clients, lenders and consumers peace of mind that their confidential information is safe. Mobile notary services continue to be a growing industry. In 2014, there were over 4.5 million registered in the United States, CertainSafe reported in a release. A breach of a single record now costs an average of $145 per event, according to CertainSafe and Express Notary.

“No other mobile notary company offers a comprehensive certification program that meets the CFPB requirements, while working in conjunction with a compliant and certified data security capability. Ours is a highly vulnerable industry,” said Express Notary CEO Henry Davidson. “That vulnerability has been stamped out through our partnership with CertainSafe.”
