The digital experience agency Primacy announced today that it has achieved Service Organization Control Type 2 Certification (SOC 2) for the third consecutive year.
The certification is considered the gold standard for data security, storage, and transit practices, policies, and procedures. To certify compliance, Primacy underwent a voluntary third-party audit and met the standards set forth by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA).
Richard Wilford, Primacy’s VP of Cyber Security said, “This rigorous audit validates that Primacy’s security practices can handle the data privacy requirements of our clients operating in highly regulated industries. Meeting these standards reaffirms to them that we’re committed to protecting their business, and their customers, from the ongoing and evolving dangers of cybercrime.”
Stan Valencis, the founder and President of Primacy added, “Many agencies consider this level of compliance excessive, but at Primacy, we believe it should be mandatory for any service provider handling sensitive information to go through this exercise. It’s imperative that our clients have complete confidence in our ability to safeguard their data, and reflects our commitment and diligence regarding cybersecurity best practices.”
Primacy will continue to voluntarily undergo SOC 2 Type 2 audits annually and will make the report available to current clients or prospects upon the execution of a non-disclosure agreement. The report includes details on Primacy’s security practices, and how they meet AICPA guidelines on data security, availability, processing integrity, confidentiality, and privacy.
