Licensing

We are licensed by the California Department of Business Oversight (DBO) and are under some of the most stringent consumer protections in the industry. Oakwood Escrow takes this a step further by performing quarterly penetration tests on our
systems. Penetration testing, also called pen testing or ethical hacking, is the practice of testing a computer system, network or web application to find security vulnerabilities that an attacker could exploit. Oakwood does this to demonstrate to our
lender partners, agent clients and the CONSUMERS we serve that Oakwood takes security and protection seriously.

Oakwood believes that by doing this it helps to provide the assurance the banks need in their compliance and regulation standards. The last thing you want is to find out at funding that your escrow company is not approved by the lender or that your
identity and funds have been compromised.

Oakwood Escrow PROUDLY does quarterly penetration tests for the protection of our clients.

Our Strategy

Security

Oakwood has hired a professional and recognized team of “hackers” to test our systems every quarter. After a series of test attacks Oakwood receives a report identifying any weaknesses found and eliminates them before a hacker with evil intent finds them and exploits them to gain access to your funds and information.

Safety

NOTHING is 100% SAFE when it comes to the internet and electronic systems and communication. Please do not allow anyone to convince you otherwise.  But there are many things that can and should be done to MINIMIZE the risk.  Investigate the efforts of any escrow company you are considering doing business with and compare them with what has been described by here.

Responsibility

Oakwood believes it has a MANDATORY responsibility to protect its clients.

Neutrality

Oakwood is not paid by nor does it have any ownership affiliation that would cause it bias, we are truly a NEUTRAL THIRD PARTY. In other words, our escrow officers are not paid by the brokerage handling the sale transaction of your home.
