The System and Organization Control (SOC) standards were developed by the American Institute of CPAs (AICPA) to improve information security and operational efficiency.
MIDDLETOWN, NY (January 15, 2019) – Nexus Health Resources recently underwent a thorough examination of its internal controls and obtained SOC 2 certification through Assure Professional, a leading cybersecurity, assurance and compliance solutions provider.
Today, more businesses than ever rely on the cloud to store customer data. SOC 2 standards were developed by the AICPA to maintain regulatory compliance and minimize the risk of a security breach.
“In the health care arena especially, information security is a top priority,” said Ryan Sparks, Co-founder and CRO of Nexus Health Resources. “Obtaining our SOC 2 certification demonstrates to our clients and their patients that we are committed to ensuring our systems and processes are not only operationally efficient but highly secure.”
SOC 2-compliant organizations are those that implement and adhere to strict information security policies designed to help them monitor system security, identify potential threats, and take effective action before a security breach can occur. By obtaining SOC 2 certification, Nexus Health Resources has taken a significant step toward optimizing its internal operations and protecting the interests of its clients.
