PHILADELPHIA, PA – ICS Corporation, a leader in innovative and creative marketing and distribution services for print/mail clients nationwide, has completed a rigorous audit of its data security processes and systems in order to earn compliance under the demanding Service Organization Controls 2 (SOC 2) standards. This demanding examination was performed by 360 Advanced, a respected national Qualified Security Assessor and Certified Public Accounting firm based in Tampa, FL.
“Maintaining compliance with the highest level of information security standards is important to ICS,” commented Dennis Fish, company spokesperson. “Protecting the assets of our client partners is critical to our ability to provide superior data processing, print and lettershop services. Our compliance with SOC2 controls provides our clients with the comfort that ICS is serious about protecting their data and delivering their brand message.”
The objective of a SOC 2 Type 2 examination is to give a business and its clients the ability to ensure that Industry Best Practices Frameworks are effectively and efficiently implemented within the company’s control environment. The engagement is conducted in a manner that establishes the design of the system of controls as of a point in time, and to assist the service organization in improving the capability maturity of its core processes.
“This process is an evolutionary one,” said Fish. “We will continue to have annual SOC 2 Type 2 Audits in order to ensure continued compliance with existing and new standards of operating controls. In September, we will embark on another round of compliance examinations to ensure that we are in compliance with HIPAA HiTrust guidelines to become fully certified through HiTrust.”
