Trust is integral to any business partnership, and when you are outsourcing your IT services it is even more crucial that you have confidence in your service provider’s security and reliability.
Empathy is engrained in our company through the ABS Way, and we understand that your data is one of your most important and sensitive assets.
That is why we have pursued becoming a SOC 2 Type 1 business, which means that a service auditor has examined our internal controls based on the trust services criteria relevant to security, availability, and confidentiality, and has attested that you can trust us with your sensitive data. Ultimately, it provides greater transparency which strengthens our customers’ confidence in our services.
What it means to be a SOC 2 Type 1 certified business IT service provider
We are proud to announce we have received our final SOC 2 Type 1 report, indicating the accuracy and reliability of our systems for the security and management of your data. Essentially, a third-party has verified that we are truly a trusted IT service provider in Louisville, Kentucky.
Our evaluation was conducted by MCM CPAs & Advisors LLP in accordance with the standards of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants based on applicable trust services criteria.
They examined our solutions, design, and systems of control relevant to security, availability, and confidentiality, and have expressed their opinion in a formal report.
Security: our business systems’ resiliency against unauthorized access
Availability: the operation of our systems without downtime
Confidentiality: the systems we use to protect data that is indicated as confidential
As one of our ABS Way principles, we are dedicated to “doing what we say we are going to do.” The SOC 2 report attests to the processes and procedures we have in place to make sure that we do this and live out our commitment to you regarding the security of your data.
Our goal as a service provider is not only to solve technical problems but to take a people-first approach as we help businesses remove the barriers of technology in their workplace. And we know one of the most important ways to do this is by assuring the security and availability of your data.
