As an industry leader in global cybersecurity and compliance services, CISO Global (NASDAQ: CISO), formerly Cerberus Cyber Sentinel Corp., recently reached a significant milestone (https://ibn.fm/BNFYO). The company announced that it has achieved SOC 2(R) Type II certification following its annual SOC 2 Type II audit.
“We believe that the relationship with our clients must be built on trust,” said Ashley Devoto, president and chief information security officer of Cerberus Sentinel. “As companies increase their usage of vendors and partners to perform activities that are core to their business operations and strategies, there is a need for the highest level of confidence and transparency into service providers’ abilities to safeguard customer data.”
Achieving the SOC 2 Type II certification, which was confirmed by an independent audit, is symbolic of Cerberus Sentinel’s commitment to providing the highest level of protection and honoring clients’ trust. The certification validates that Cerberus security controls and data-privacy practices meet best practices.
Cerberus Sentinel continues to strengthen its reputation as a managed cybersecurity and compliance provider that can be trusted to secure its customers’ systems. The SOC 2 Type II certification is widely recognized as a symbol of trust and excellence. This certification involves an in-depth review of controls relevant to security, availability, processing integrity, confidentiality and privacy and provides compliance attestation for service providers worldwide.
Typically, a SOC 2 audit is performed by an accredited CPA firm in accordance with the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants’ (“AICPA”) AT-C 205, “Reporting on Controls at a Service Organization,” and is based on the trust service principles outlined in the AICPA Guide “Reporting on Controls at a Service Organization Relevant to Security, Availability, Processing Integrity, Confidentiality, or Privacy.” The company noted that “achieving this standard with an unqualified opinion serves as third-party industry validation that Cerberus Sentinel manages customers’ data with the highest standard of security and compliance.”
Cerberus Sentinel is an industry leader in its role as a global cybersecurity and compliance provider. The company is rapidly expanding by acquiring world-class cybersecurity, secured managed services and compliance companies with top-tier talent that utilize the latest technology to create innovative solutions to protect the most demanding businesses and government organizations, mitigating continuing and emerging security threats and compliance obligations.
