INOC Data Centers Maintains Effective Security Controls According to Recent SOC 2 Report



Albany, NY - July 15th, 2021 –

Today, INOC Data Centers announced that the company has undergone a System and Organization Controls (SOC) 2 examination resulting in a CPA’s report stating that management of INOC Data Centers maintained effective controls over the security and availability of its Colocation and Dedicated Internet Connectivity Services. The engagement was performed by BARR Advisory, P.A.

A SOC 2 report is designed to meet the needs of existing or potential customers who need assurance about the effectiveness of controls at a service organization that are relevant to the security, availability, or processing integrity of the system used by the service organization to process customers’ information, or the confidentiality or privacy of that information.

"We are pleased that our SOC 2 report has shown that we have the appropriate controls in place to mitigate risks related to security, availability and HIPAA Security Rule Requirements,” said Abby Horn - General Manager. “We take every step to ensure peace of mind for each and every one of our clients.”

The following principles and related criteria have been developed by the American Institute of CPAs (AICPA) for use by pracHHoners in the performance of trust services engagements:

● Security. The system is protected against unauthorized access (both physical and logical).
● Availability. The system is available for operation and use as committed or agreed.
● HIPAA Security Rule Requirements. The system is compliant with the applicable HIPAA Security Rule
requirements set forth in the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ (HHS) Health Information Portability and Accountability Act.

A SOC 2 report is an internal control report on the services provided by a service organization to its customers and provides valuable information that existing and potential customers of the service organization need to assess and address the risks associated with an outsourced service.
Current and prospective customers interested in a copy of our SOC 2 report may contact Nicholas Molik - [email protected].
