HaystackID, a specialized eDiscovery services firm supporting law firms and corporate legal departments, today announced it has successfully completed a Service Organization Control for Service Organizations (SOC 2) Type 2 audit for all five trust principles for the second year in a row.
The five areas include security, availability, processing integrity, confidentiality, and privacy. Including the company’s past acquisitions and its recent acquisition of Business Intelligence Associates, an end-to-end eDiscovery service provider, HaystackID has completed a SOC 2 Type 2 audit with no exceptions for over seven years.
The independent audit was conducted by Wipfli LLP, a national accounting and consulting firm, using criteria developed by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants. It ensures protection of customer data and establishes an organization’s reliability and credibility to meet its commitments and system requirements by testing for five trust principles, each measured by a set of controls and testing standards from the AICPA Trust Services Criteria:
“By continuing to maintain HaystackID’s SOC 2 Type 2 audit, we have demonstrated the importance of keeping security and privacy at the forefront of our offerings, while going above and beyond for customers,” HaystackID Vice President of IT Security Michael Cammack said. “In today’s world, it is more important now than ever before to not only meet but exceed standards of protection for customer data.”
In particular, during the audit of HaystackID’s Quality Improvement Process, the company received strong affirmation on self-reporting and span of expertise and engagement, demonstrating the continued success of quality systems and processes in place.
“As a service organization, detailed information and assurances about controls relevant to the security, availability, processing integrity, confidentiality, and privacy of customer data are vital to our success,” HaystackID Chief Technology Officer Evan Craghead said. “We are dedicated to having industry-leading safeguards in place and are proud to participate in security certification programs like the SOC 2 Type 2 audit.”
