SOC 2 Type 2 Attestation Achieved
SOC stands for “system and organization controls.” The controls are a series of standards designed to measure how well a given service organization conducts and regulates its information.
Ultimately, SOC standards were designed to provide confidence and peace of mind for Businesses when they engage third-party vendors and ensure that the firm has the appropriate safeguards and procedures in place.
CIPO was built by Owners for Owners; therefore, we are serious about protecting your essential data better than most on the market. You may be thinking, “how does this help my organization, and where does CIPO get involved?”. Your IT or IS department knows all too well the importance of your vendors being SOC (Type 1 and Type 2) audited, and how important it is to have the peace of mind when a system like CIPO connects to your valuable Agency data. It is ultimately their job to ensure that your data is safe. Thus most firms will push to align themselves with a service provider like CIPO, who has the SOC 2 Type 2 attestation.
SOC 2 is an extensive examination that involves an external auditor to report on our internal controls relevant to security, availability, processing integrity, confidentiality, or privacy processes. It follows SSAE 18 (Clarified Attestation Standards).
CIPO has proven its system keeps its clients’ sensitive data secure and available. When your organization is ready to work in a cloud environment, such performances and reliability are essential to protect your data. Through an exhaustive search, most of our competitors do not offer this enhanced security and peace of mind.
So why risk your critical data? SOC 2 Type 2 attestation is just one aspect of CIPO’s commitment to regulatory compliance, privacy, and security that make us the right choice for your Agency.
