Mission Earns SOC 2 Type II Certification for Data Security Controls and Processes
LOS ANGELES – September 29, 2020 – Mission, a managed cloud services provider and Premier Consulting Partner in the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Partner Network (APN), today announced its successful completion of the Service Organization Control (SOC) 2 Type II audit, earning the company SOC 2 Type II certification. The SOC 2 Type II audit was performed by BARR Advisory, P.A.
SOC 2 Type II certification, developed by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA), follows a comprehensive evaluation of the design and operating effectiveness of a service organization’s security controls across key areas relevant to the safe handling of customer data – including as they relate to industry-specific regulations, such as HIPAA. Specifically, the SOC 2 Type II assesses the security, availability, and processing integrity of the service organization’s systems, as well as its ability to maintain the confidentiality and privacy of customer data.
As a SOC 2 Type II-certified managed cloud services provider, customers can be assured that Mission is effective in protecting all data managed in the cloud through proven and verified data security systems and procedures. Businesses enlisting Mission to manage and optimize their AWS environments can do so with complete confidence that their data is secure and available, and that the privacy and confidentiality of that data is robustly defended.
