Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) August 30, 2013
Cyber Wurx, LLC, a leader in the webhosting and colocation industry, has announced that it recently completed its Service Organization Controls 2 (SOC 2) examination under AT Section 101, Attest Engagements (AICPA, Professional Standards), for the period January 1st, 2013 through May 31st, 2013, that was performed by an independent auditing firm.
Completion of the SOC 2 Type II examination indicates that selected Cyber Wurx processes, procedures and controls have been evaluated and tested by an independent accounting and auditing firm. The examination includes the company’s controls related to the Trust Services Principles and Criteria of Security, Availability, Processing Integrity, Confidentiality, and Privacy.
An SOC 2 examination is performed in accordance with AT Section 101, Attest Engagements (AICPA, Professional Standards). SOC 2 is designated as an acceptable method for a user entity’s management to obtain assurance about service organization internal controls over Security, Availability, Processing Integrity, Confidentiality, and Privacy without conducting additional assessments.
Chris Schwarz, CEO of Cyber Wurx, said, “Cyberwurx originally pursued the SOC 2 evaluation process as a means to measure our services within the industry. We strive to hold ourselves to the highest standards with respect to facility security, and the achievement of the Type II certification reflects that, placing us in the top 6% of data centers who have underwent Service Organization Control evaluations.”
A SOC 2 examination is widely recognized because it represents that a service organization has undergone an evaluation of their control activities as they relate to the applicable Trust Services Principles and Criteria. A Type II report not only includes the service organization's system description but also includes detailed testing of the design and operating effectiveness of the service organization's controls.
