New York, NY (PRWEB) April 07, 2014
Complete Discovery Source, the leader in eDiscovery, announced today that it has been successfully re-examined for the SSAE 16 SOC 1 Type 2 standard specifically for its Electronic Discovery Hosting Services. This entails repeated third-party testing to ensure that their clients’ ediscovery data are as protected as possible, conforming to standards established by international service organization reporting standards, the ISAE 3402.
The review period is for September 1, 2013 to February 28, 2014 with “Type 2” referring to the controls at a service organization relevant to security, availability, processing integrity, confidentiality, and privacy. The examination was performed by BrightLine, an ANAB accredited Certification Body based in the United States.
“This is about giving corporations complete peace of mind for data security,” said Garrett Bendel, Chief Operating Officer, “We continue to layer certifications, examinations, investments in infrastructure and data science to ensure that our security is unmatched. SOC 1 Type 2 and ISO 27001 help us stay on that track.”
What does this mean for sensitive corporate data?
CDS’ certifications (ISO 27001) and examinations (SOC 1 Type 2) mean that corporations can entrust their most critical information with complete confidence. CDS’ security standards are standardized, measured, and strictly monitored.
How is CDS’ SOC 1 Type 2 examination different?
For CDS, this evaluation is specific to the eDiscovery process and data facilities. Other providers’ representations of SOC 1 or ISO standards often refer to unrelated technologies within their operations or a colocation where their equipment is located. The SOC 1 Type 2 examination specifically scrutinized CDS’ integrity related to eDiscovery—data center hosting services, data management, and the functional areas of operations including executive management, IT infrastructure, chain of custody, and evidentiary data.
