Sacumen is proud to announce that it is now ISO 27001: 2013 and SOC 2 Type I compliant. These internationally recognised standards ensure our products and services meet client requirements through effective quality, security and privacy management systems.
IAn ISO 27001 information security management system is a systematic and pro-active approach to effectively managing risks to the security of your company’s confidential information. The system promotes efficient management of sensitive corporate information, highlighting vulnerabilities to ensure it is adequately protected against potential threats. It encompasses people, process and IT systems. An ISO 27001 certification can be achieved by any business of any size, in any given sector, which is looking to increase and enhance the company’s security of its data. Information is an asset which, like other important business assets, has a value to an organisation and consequently needs to be suitably protected. This standard will help your company coordinate all your security efforts both electronically and physically, coherently, cost effectively and with consistency and prove to potential customers that you take the security of their personal / business information seriously.
Introduced by the AICPA (American Institute of CPAs) in the 2010s, SOC 2 is an audit that carries out a security assessment into how effectively a service organization is able to manage their data and protect the privacy of their clients. There are two types, SOC 2 Type 1 and SOC 2 Type 2. Both audits assess your organization against five key criteria, known as the five trust service principles:
- Processing integrity.
A SOC 2 Type 1 audit will offer proof that the suitability of the design of your data security systems and procedures align with these trust services criteria at a given point in time. The report will detail and document your current cloud security systems and the effect of the controls. These controls could be a preventative, detective, or corrective in nature. The finished SOC 2 Type 1 report offers proof that a service organization has recognized data security best practices in place.
