GATINEAU, Quebec (PRWEB) August 04, 2020
Foko Retail proudly announced today it has completed its Service Organization Control (SOC) 2 Type 2 examination. The audit was conducted by Assure Professional, a leading cybersecurity, assurance, and compliance solutions provider.
Developed by the American Institute of CPAs (AICPA), SOC 2 is a technical audit meant to evaluate an enterprise’s information systems and the effectiveness of its internal controls in ensuring the security, availability, processing integrity, confidentiality, and privacy of a customer or client’s data. To be deemed compliant, software as a service (SaaS) providers must implement and follow strict information security policies and procedures, which are then validated by a third party.
“We’re relied on by some of the world’s biggest brands, and our platform is used in thousands of points of sale every day. They trust us to protect their information,” says Colin McDonald, co-founder of Foko Retail and the company’s director of R&D. “By completing SOC 2 compliance testing, our current customers and other retailers and brands can be confident in our ability to provide them and their teams with the utmost security.”
Earlier this year, Foko Retail announced the COVID Kit, a suite of tools and resources—including a self-assessment symptom screening tool, a dedicated website tracking store reopenings across America, and standalone apps for booking reservations and limiting wait times for customers—to help retailers navigate the COVID-19 pandemic.
