Continuing To Invest In Data Management And Security Assurance
Managed IT Services

Washington, DC – September 28th, 2021. Washington, DC-based designDATA is excited to announce the 9th 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 service organizations that provide services to other entities. The intent is to help 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 at a service organization 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 system and the suitability of the design and operating effectiveness of the controls to achieve the related control objectives throughout a specified period.

“Data security is particularly critical in the current business climate. Our successful completion of AICPA’s SOC I and II audits illustrates how designDATA’s systems and processes are of the highest possible integrity. We have been concerned with our clients’ data security since before it was essential, and we will continue to dedicate ourselves to superior security for years to come,” said Jonathan Roy, Director of Security and Compliance at designDATA.

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 2021.
