SkyTerra Completes SOC Audit Exam
SkyTerra is excited to announce that we have successfully completed the System and Organizational Controls (SOC) 2® Type 2 Audit examination for our managed services system.
The SOC 2® Type 2 report is completed by an independent auditing firm and provides an understanding of a service organization’s suitability of the design, implementation and operating effectiveness of its internal controls. A service organization may select any or all of the trust service criteria applicable to its business. At SkyTerra, we chose to report on security.
The successful completion of this voluntary engagement illustrates our ongoing commitment to create and maintain a secure operating environment for our clients’ confidential data.
Pease Bell CPAs, the independent auditing firm, tested SkyTerra’s controls and included an examination of our policies and procedures regarding cloud security, network connectivity, systems development life cycle, computer operations, logical access, data transmission, backup and disaster recovery and other critical operational areas of our business. Upon completion of the audit, SkyTerra received a Service Auditor’s Report with an opinion demonstrating that our policies, procedures and infrastructure meet or exceed the stringent SOC 2® criteria.
The successful completion of our SOC 2® Type 2 examination audit provides SkyTerra Technologies’ clients with the assurance that the controls and safeguards we employ to protect and secure their data are in line with industry standards and best practices.
SkyTerra Technologies believes information is one of the most valuable business assets to an organization, and that partnership with us provides the necessary protection to an organization’s information assets to mitigate risks associated with the use and processing of information collected during business operations.
