Reviewing all our systems and processes shed some light on blind spots we had. We also have a systematic process to identify, assess and mitigate business risks across different departments.
MONTREAL (PRWEB) August 12, 2021
In an ongoing effort to increase their data security, Perkuto, a leading provider of marketing automation services related to Marketo and Workato, is proud to announce they have completed their SOC 2 Type 1 Report, completed by A-LIGN. This report represents Perkuto’s commitment to protecting user data and handling sensitive data with integrity and care.
With data breaches and cyber security attacks on the rise, ensuring rigorous data security is paramount. SOC 2 is an auditing report designed for service organizations that provides insight to stakeholders and users that a particular service is being offered securely. This procedure consists of checks to ensure data is securely managed, and that the proper controls are implemented to protect data. This report can help boost confidence in services offered by the service organization, and is often sought after by potential customers.
More specifically, the SOC 2 Type 1 reports on management’s documentation of a service organization’s system and the suitability of the design of controls, according to the American Institute of CPAs (AICPA). The report takes a deep look into the controls in place, and reviews documentation, structure, and processes across these controls.
