The Locum suite of products takes account of two forms of compliance: Section 508 refers to the standards integral to the Locum products themselves, while PCI DSS refers to standards imposed in the customer environment which the Locum products can help validate.

Section 508 Compliance

Section 508 relates to the US Rehabilitation Act of 1973, amended in 1998 to require US Federal agencies to make their electronic and information technology accessible to people with disabilities. Under Section 508, agencies must give disabled employees and members of the public access to information that is comparable to access available to others.

Locum has made best efforts to ensure that its suite of products is compliant with Section 508. If any customers encounter features that, in their opinion, do not comply, Locum will endeavour to rework such functionality to ensure compliance.

PCI DSS Compliance

Many ClearPath MCP customers are subject to the global requirements set down by the Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council and are therefore subject to annual validation of adherence to those standards.

In release version 4.2 of the software, Locum made several enhancements to assist ClearPath MCP customers verify that their security policy conforms to PCI DSS (Data Security Standard) requirements. In particular, SafeSurvey incorporates a PCI Compliance snapshot which consolidates information relating to the requirements into a single report for ease of use; SecureAudit offers a Port Connections report to highlight which network connections, whether internal or external, are using secure transport protocols, and the strength of those protocols.

As the standards evolve, Locum will, where possible, keep pace with future changes to the requirements.
