Thursday, April 2, 2020

IMCORP reinforces its commitment to its customer's confidence by safeguarding their data with a SOC 2 Type 2 audit and certification!

IMCORP is fortifying its commitment to providing quality service to its customers by continuing to further their Service Organization Controls 2 (SOC 2) compliance program.

In May of 2019 IMCORP was certified for a SOC 2 Type 1 report. In February 2020, IMCORP partnered once again with A-Lign (a-lign.com), an industry leading Cybersecurity-focused CPA firm, to provide a SOC 2 Type 2 certification. The audit focused on IMCORP’s policies and business practices as they relate to the Trust Service Principles of Security, Confidentiality, Integrity, and Availability. 

To ensure that we continually maintain a high-quality security regime for our customer data and company networks we have established a plan to have these third-party reviews (SOC 2 Type 2) conducted on an annual basis. We are happy to share this report with existing and prospective partners upon request.
