John Hancock Retirement Plan Services Offers Cybersecurity Guarantee
BOSTON, MA, September 27, 2018 -- John Hancock Retirement Plan Services (JHRPS) has formalized current practice, offering a Cybersecurity Guarantee to reimburse eligible participants for unauthorized transfers from their 401k retirement accounts, another way JHRPS puts its participants first.
John Hancock's technology infrastructure is scalable and strengthened with multiple layers of security. Its multi-faceted approach to data security not only includes safeguards implemented within the business unit, but also security measures at the John Hancock and global Manulife levels. The company's technology is consistent with the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) guidelines, ISO 27001 principles, and other industry standard frameworks for information risk management.
"Retirement plan providers are technology companies," said Tony Todisco, senior vice president, Information Technology & Delivery Management. "As technology and online threats become more sophisticated, we are committed to keeping pace with new ways to protect our clients' and participants' accounts. Our Cybersecurity Guarantee underscores the strength of that commitment."
In keeping with the company's holistic "participants first" approach, JHRPS also educates participants on prudent online security practices that could apply to anything they do on the Internet.
