Center for Internet Security Completes SOC2 Compliance Audit
Framework will further secure customer and user data
EAST GREENBUSH, NY, Jan. 11, 2022 – The Center for Internet Security, Inc. (CIS®) announces the successful completion of the System and Organization Controls (SOC) 2 Type II Audit for the CIS SecureSuite and MS- and EI-ISAC membership services.
SOC 2 is a reporting framework that sets benchmarks for managing customer and user data, which was created by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA). The framework is based on the Trust Services Criteria – privacy, confidentiality, security, availability, and processing integrity. SOC 2 Type II compliance ensures existing and potential members that CIS has the proper security, privacy, and compliance controls in place to manage its products and services.
Undergoing the attestation process is not easy, but it was made possible by the CIS team’s focus and diligence in completing the audit process successfully. We can assure our customers that CIS products and services align with security and privacy standards in the industry.
CIS’s SOC 2 compliance ensures our members’ data and associated information is protected according to defined compliance requirements. CIS continues to improve upon the security and privacy of our members and plans to move forward with other certifications in the future.
