Toronto, December 3rd 2015 – Scarsin Corporation, a software development and services company specializing in providing enterprise-class Business Intelligence (BI) to global organizations, today announced that the company has successfully completed Service Organization Control 2 (SOC 2) Type 2 Attestation Report (commonly referred to as SOC2 certification) after undergoing a thorough attestation conducted by the independent auditing and accounting firm NDB Accountants & Consultants LLP (the principal member of the NDB Alliance of CPA firms).
This demonstrates Scarsin’s ongoing commitment to providing its clients with the highest level of compliance in regards to data security, reliability and privacy. It also further demonstrates Scarsin’s adoption of an on-going regimen for continued compliance efforts in order to bring assurance to clients that Scarsin understands the value of a continuing process of evaluation and monitoring of our services in a dynamic environment.
Last November, Scarsin obtained the initial SOC Type 1 Attestation Report which included a security attestation process to validate the design of controls put into its operation. The continued efforts towards receiving the Type 2 Attestation report takes the process one step further by testing the operating effectiveness of the controls over a designated test period. The SOC 2 Attestation Standard, defined by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA), is recognized and accepted worldwide and is designated by the AICPA as the most relevant attest standard for service providers such as Scarsin and its business processes.
"Scarsin’s increased efforts towards compliance and monitoring activities will certainly elevate its operations towards higher levels of assurance to its clients in this world of ongoing security concerns. We have continued discussions with Scarsin about elevating their oversight of the control environment and we appreciate their understanding of the value that can be taken from an on-going, applicable, and relevant compliance regimen,” as stated by Christopher Nickell, CPA, CITP, CFF, CRISC, of NDB Accountants & Consultants, LLP.
“With a rapidly expanding global client roster, the ability to provide our customers with the highest level of confidence is key to Scarsin’s continued business success,” says Paul Minshull, CEO and founder of Scarsin Corporation. “SOC accreditation enables us to instill confidence in our clients that the necessary controls are in place to safeguard their mission critical information.”
