LONDON, June 1, 2016
DH Corporation (“D+H”), a leading provider of technology solutions to financial institutions globally, today announced that its SWIFT service bureau in the United Kingdom has been awarded with the highest level of certification offered by SWIFT for service bureaus, the Premier Operational Practice label.
SWIFT awards service bureaus with the Premier Operational Practice label following rigorous on-site testing and inspections to validate compliance with its strict requirements. Among the requirements are secure infrastructure with built-in redundancies, best practice security controls, and robust bandwidth to handle peak volume processing.

This makes D+H the only company in the world to have two of its service bureaus awarded the Premier Operational Practice label from SWIFT.
