ProCogia achieves SOC 2 Type 1 attestation
As more enterprises increase the amount of sensitive and confidential business data they process with cloud-based service providers like ProCogia, data security is an ever-critical priority.
We are therefore delighted to have received our Service Organization Control (SOC) 2 Type 1 attestation report, validating that our policies and controls meet the industry’s stringent standards of data protection.
What is SOC 2 Type 1?
Developed by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA), SOC 2 is an extensive independent assessment of an organization’s internal security controls including cloud-based customer data handling, data storage and data protection processes.
The audit is performed by an independent AICPA-accredited audit firm and assesses the suitability of the design and operating effectiveness of controls relevant to the security, availability, or processing integrity of an organization’s information and systems, as well as the confidentiality and privacy of the information processed.
SOC 2 Type 1 compliance evaluates the internal cybersecurity controls at a single point in time within an organization to determine whether they are correctly designed and sufficient enough to safeguard customer data. SOC 2 Type 1 provides a real-time, shareable security report, powered by the security and compliance automation platform Drata.
“Obtaining SOC 2 Type 1 attestation assists ProCogia in articulating key IT risks and controls, which is important for cultivating a ‘risk and control’ culture across our organization. It also helps us to address key concerns that many clients approach us with in relation to security risks and controls.”
