Immersion is a wholly-owned subsidiary of NPC (www.npcweb.com) and is based in State College, PA in Penn State's Innovation Park. NPC is a 55 year old privately-owned printing services company (approximately 500 employees) located in Claysburg, PA. NPC is a top-ranked provider of printing services to the federal government (ranked in the top 3 print vendors to the Government Printing Office for the past 10+ years). Much of the work performed for the federal government out of NPC's 200,000 square foot manufacturing facility involves the confidential personally identifiable information of many federal government agencies. NPC will print, insert and mail in excess of 200 million pieces of mail in 2010.
Immersion offers its customers a comprehensive data breach notification service - InfoLaunch - which is "powered" by the printing, inserting and mailing capabilities of NPC.
InfoLaunch (www.useinfolaunch.com) is a registered trademark of Immersion. The InfoLaunch service is a package of pre-data breach readiness and post-breach printing, mailing and call center services. InfoLaunch provides businesses with valuable assistance in complying with both the existing 45 state data breach notification laws and the new HIPAA-protected health information breach notification requirements contained in the HITECH Act.
NPC and Immersion have provided breach notification services to the federal government (starting with several million of the required notices in the infamous Veterans Administration lost laptop incident in 2006), educational institutions, healthcare systems and financial institutions. All production is performed in the secure environment of NPC's manufacturing facility - i.e., no outsourcing. Because NPC is a USPS authorized plant load facility (with fulltime postal inspectors on site), when the notification letters leave our facility, they are in the mail stream. The federal government rates our "on time" delivery at 99.9%+. Meeting data breach compliance deadlines (and high quality metrics) is merely "business as usual" for NPC and Immersion.
