In today's interconnected digital landscape, ensuring the utmost security and trust in data handling and processing has never been more important. We are thrilled to announce that &Open has successfully completed its annual System and Organization Controls (SOC) 2 examination, obtaining an unqualified SOC2 Type II report.

This achievement reaffirms our commitment to maintaining effective controls over various crucial aspects of our business, showcasing our dedication to safeguarding sensitive information and providing impeccable services to our clients.

What is SOC 2, and why does it matter?

SOC 2, an industry-recognized auditing procedure, is meticulously designed to scrutinize and vouch for the proficiency of controls a service organization deploys in processing and managing customer data.

This examination is specifically customized to cater to the unique needs of current and potential customers who require assurances regarding their data's security, availability, processing, confidentiality, and privacy. Completing a SOC 2 examination shows that &Open has implemented firm and exhaustive safeguards to mitigate risks related to these critical aspects.

A successful partnership

To ensure a thorough and unbiased examination, we enlisted the services of BARR Advisory, P.A. The audit consisted of an exhaustive evaluation of our systems, operations, and controls as mapped against the rigorous benchmarks framed by the American Institute of CPAs (AICPA).

Deciphering the pillars of trust: Key principles

The SOC 2 examination covers diverse principles, significantly accentuating the importance of data security and trust. These principles include:

1. Security:

We have armored our systems against any unauthorized invasion, whether physical or logical.

2. Availability:

&Open's systems are consistently operational, offering accessibility as per set agreements.

3. Processing integrity:

We process data accurately and promptly while aligning with our organizational goals.

4. Confidentiality:

We exercise the highest degree of caution and protection to shield classified information in line with our obligations.

5. Privacy:

We handle personal information maximally aligned with our organizational goals.

At &Open, our unqualified SOC2 Type II recertification signifies far more than a technical accomplishment; it reflects our ongoing commitment to trust, innovation, and excellence.
