TAMPA, Fla. (PRWEB) May 12, 2020
Sourcetoad, an enterprise application development firm, today announced successful completion of their 2019 SOC 2 Type 2 examination, as well as their 2019 HIPAA Security Compliance Assessment. These achievements reflect the organization’s long-standing commitment to data security, while giving them a competitive edge in their industry.
“Becoming SOC 2-compliant helps us move closer toward our company goals,” explained Greg Ross-Munro, CEO and Founder of Sourcetoad. “From an engineering perspective, it makes us more standards-focused and security-driven. It is the kind of step that we would want our engineering team to take if we were the client. The kind of organization and discipline required to pass the audit is indicative of the kind of company we are and how we aspire to keep improving.”
“This type of compliance is relatively unusual in our industry,” added Melissa Perez, Marketing Specialist for Sourcetoad. “We did it to offer better service to our clients. It [also] is one factor in helping us differentiate Sourcetoad from our competitors.”
Sourcetoad was audited against the AICPA Trust Services Criteria for Security, Availability, and Confidentiality, as well as applicable HIPAA security regulations. The SOC 2 Type 2 examination provided assurance regarding the effectiveness of the company's controls over a period of time, while the HIPAA assessment reviewed the company’s procedures for storing, processing, and handling electronic protected health information (ePHI).
Both efforts were completed by the professional and independent third-party audit firm, 360 Advanced, Inc.
By completing their SOC examination and HIPAA assessment as part of a single streamlined engagement, Sourcetoad was able to reduce the demands on their team, making the entire process less of drain on their resources. At the same time, they were able to gain a more cohesive view of their security posture, allowing them to make more informed decisions to protect their customers’ information.
