designDATA Is Excited to Announce the 10th Annual Completion
of Both SOC 1-SSAE 18 Type II and SOC 2-SSAE 18 Type II Audits

Washington, DC – August 23, 2022. Washington, DC-based designDATA is excited to announce the 10th annual completion of both SOC 1-SSAE 18 Type II and SOC 2-SSAE 18 Type II audits.

The American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) created Service Organization Control (SOC) reports for organizations that provide services to other entities. The intent is to build trust and confidence in an organization’s services and controls through a report by an independent CPA.

The SOC 1 report evaluates the effect of the controls at the service organization on the user entities’ internal control over financial reporting (ICFR). The SOC 2 report evaluates the controls pertaining to security, availability, processing integrity, confidentiality, or privacy. Both SOC 1 and 2 Type II audits report on the fairness of the presentation of management’s description of the service organization’s systems and the suitability of the design and operating effectiveness of the controls to achieve the related control objectives throughout a specified period.


designDATA performed both SOC 1-SSAE 18 Type II and SOC 2-SSAE 18 Type II audits to further analyze and validate management and security controls, emphasizing their dedication to remaining security-focused in 2022.

"For ten years, designDATA has used our SOC audit reports to assure our clients and partners that we hold ourselves to the highest industry standards. The manner in which we handle your financial information and the critical data you entrust to us is our highest responsibility," explains Jonathan Roy, Director of Security and Compliance at designDATA. "Not many MSPs invest in this certification because of the high degree of accountability it details, but we believe in putting our policies and procedures to the test. Thank you for your continued trust and support, and we hope to be your go-to MSP for years to come."
