Revere CRE Inc. announced today, November 6th,2022, that it has achieved SOC 2 Type I compliance in accordance with American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) standards for SOC for Service Organizations also known as SSAE 18. Achieving this standard serves as third-party industry validation that Revere CRE Inc. provides enterprise-level security for customers’ data secured in the Revere CRE Inc. System.
What is SOC 2 compliance?
Developed by the American Institute of CPAs (AICPA), the SOC 2 framework is an internationally recognized security compliance standard for Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) companies. Acquiring this credential demonstrates a company’s commitment to implementing and maintaining effective information security controls.
To achieve compliance, the organization had to pass a technical audit, which required independent verification that Revere CRE has not only established, but also follows, strict information security policies and procedures encompassing the 5 Trust Services Principles (TSP) defined by the Assurance Services Executive Committee of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA). These principles are security, availability, processing integrity, confidentiality, and privacy.
Why is SOC 2 compliance so crucial for data security?
SOC 2 Type I compliance requires an extensive auditing and documentation process that ensures best practices are in place to prevent, detect, and repair any threat to data security. This process can take up to 12 months and ensures multiple layers of protection are set up to prevent and address threats.
Some of the SOC 2 Type I audit activities conducted to ensure the reliable delivery of services include
- Confirming the operational effectiveness of networks, hardware, and facilities used to deliver Revere CRE services
- Testing procedures related to data security and data encryption
- Evaluating our software development processes, including managing changes to applications and databases
- Ensuring individuals who support the delivery of services to customers are properly vetted and trained
