Content Critical completes SOC 2 Type 2 and HIPAA assessment; Designations are becoming “critical requirements” for data managers

MOONACHIE, N.J., April 17, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Content Critical Solutions, a leading provider of mission-critical business communications services, announces completion of a third party audit attesting to its achievement of the demanding requirements of the SOC 2 Type 2 and HIPAA data security standards.

The rigorous examinations that led to the achievements were administered by the professional IT assurance and compliance staff at 360 Advanced, a respected national Qualified Security Assessor, HITRUST CSF Assessor and CPA firm based in St. Petersburg, FL. 360 Advanced has clients in 30 U.S. states, Europe, South and Central America and the Pacific Rim.

The SOC 2 Type 2, developed by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA), is the most widely recognized authoritative guidance that provides service organizations a uniform method for disclosing independently assessed information about the design and operation of internal controls.

HIPAA, the federal Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, is designed to provide privacy standards to protect patients' medical records and other health information provided to health plans, doctors, hospitals and other health care providers.

“We have always followed these procedures, but having these designations is a critical requirement for most of our transactional clients, and it also helps us obtain new business,” commented Frederick Van Alstyne, Chief Operating Officer. “Most firms in the transactional business space require the SOC 2 Type 2 standards, and the HIPAA now is expected.”
