Critical components include the ability to reduce risk, assure business continuity and provide controlled security measures to ensure data confidentiality
ORANGE, CA. November 10, 2014 - Lumen21, an award-winning global technology firm that specializes in compliance and technology services and solutions, today announced it has achieved SSAE 16 SOC 2 Type II certification for its managed services operations. The achievement demonstrates Lumen21’s commitment to its clients and partners that the company exceeds security, compliance and safety-related requirements for controls and safeguards when hosting customer data.
The SSAE 16 SOC 2 Type II certification is a reporting standard established by the AICPA (American Institute of CPAs) to report on the controls and services provided to customers. It is a critical designation for any organization that handles sensitive data within the medical or insurance claims processing, payroll processing, loan servicing, SaaS, and Network Monitoring Services industries. The certification is of particular importance to Lumen21’s healthcare, financial services and public sector partners and clients, for which SSAE16 SOC 2 Type II certification is often a pre-requisite to doing business.
Lumen21 completed a stringent, independent audit of its technology services, processes, and controls before the company achieved its designation. The critical components to obtaining SSAE16 SOC 2 Type II certification include the ability to assess and reduce risk, assure business continuity, and provide controlled security measures to ensure privacy and confidentiality of data. Lumen21 already had the SSAE16 SOC 2 Type I certification and now has added the Type II.
“Our data centers and cloud services we use were already SSAE16 certified, but we felt it important that Lumen21 be certified as a company,” said Carol Kinney, Lumen21 Vice President of Sales. “Our customers and reseller partners now have complete confidence that critical data and infrastructure is in a facility, as well as provided by a company, that employs stringent internal business processes and IT controls for the services provided. We are very pleased to be among but a few organizations that have taken this step as a company, “said, Eduardo Don Jr., President, Lumen21
