At Optera, we are dedicated to keeping our clients’ data safe and secure. As a part of an ongoing effort to invest in data security best practices, we are excited to announce that we’ve successfully completed our SOC 2 Type 1 audit as of October 2023.
The SOC 2 audit was conducted by leading compliance assessor A-LIGN, a technology-enabled security and compliance firm trusted by more than 2,500 global organizations to help mitigate cybersecurity risks.
Established by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA), the SOC 2 examination is designed for organizations of any size, regardless of industry and scope, to ensure the personal assets of their potential and existing customers are protected. SOC 2 reports are recognized globally and affirm that a company’s infrastructure, software, people, data, policies, procedures and operations have been formally reviewed.
Optera will perform a SOC 2 assessment on an annual basis and can make the report available to current or potential customers upon execution of a non-disclosure agreement. If you are interested in viewing Optera’s SOC 2 report, please reach out in our Contact form.
