CaseWare Successfully Obtains SOC 2® Type 2 Certification
As part of CaseWare’s commitment to data security, privacy, and compliance controls for CaseWare Cloud, CaseWare International has successfully completed a Service Organizations Controls (SOC) 2 Type 2 Examination Audit and is now certified.
SOC 2 is an internationally recognized auditing standard developed by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA). AICPA SOC 2® for Service Organizations are examination engagements performed by a service auditor that thoroughly examine the controls and processes involved in storing, handling and transmitting data securely. Achieving SOC 2 certification reinforces CaseWare’s promise to maintain the most stringent controls for protecting and securing confidential customer information.
CaseWare Cloud SOC 2 audit reports focus on one or multiple Trust Services categories and ensures the organization is storing, handling and transmitting data in a manner that meets or exceeds the following requirements:
Security: With regularly scheduled security checks and by implementing backup recovery plans, all systems and infrastructure are protected against unauthorized access.
Confidentiality: Sensitive client information is securely stored by protocols to mitigate possible business impacts and adhere to privacy acts and strict data storage compliance codes.
“Acquiring the SOC 2 Type 2 Certification is evidence that we have a defined set of data security procedures in place,” said Dwight Wainman, President, and CEO of CaseWare International. “Being in compliance will assure customers, on a global scale, that data security is at the forefront of all current and future initiatives for CaseWare Cloud,” he added.
