GrayHair’s commitment to comprehensive security practices for protecting customer data.
August 6, 2019 (Philadelphia) – GrayHair Software, the trusted partner and provider of mail tracking and address hygiene services to the largest mailers and mail service providers in the country, today announces the successful completion of a Service Organization Control (SOC) 2 Type II Audit examination for its platform. The successful completion illustrates GrayHair’s ongoing commitment to create and maintain a secure operating environment for its clients’ confidential data.
SOC 2® represents Service Organization Control 2 compliance and is an annual, in-depth security evaluation audit performed by an independent, accredited third party. It examines security policies and processes in place at data centers and physical locations. It typically takes three to four months from audit to compliance approval. The company has been SOC 2® compliant for more than six consecutive years.
“By proactively completing a SOC 2® audit and HITRUST controls mapping, GrayHair is demonstrating their proactive commitment to data security and compliance,” said Dixon Wright, Vice President SOC & ISO Practices, Coalfire. “GrayHair can confidently provide their valued clients an independent report on their security controls posture.”
“We live in a world where data privacy is a fundamental right and data security is imperative to every customer experience, across every communication channel,” said Tom McCaully, CEO of GrayHair Software. “The successful completion of our SOC 2® Type II audit provides GrayHair’s clients with the assurance that GrayHair has deployed the controls and safeguards necessary to protect and secure their data in accordance with industry standards and best practices.”
The SOC 2® Type II report is performed by an independent auditing firm and is intended to provide an understanding of the service organization’s suitability of the design and operating effectiveness of its internal controls. An organization may select any or all of the trust service principles applicable to their business. The successful completion of this voluntary engagement illustrates GrayHair’s ongoing commitment to create and maintain a secure operating environment for its clients’ confidential data.
“We are audited on an annual basis for security compliance by many of our top clients, said Linda Green, Senior Director, Risk Management and Planning, GrayHair Software. “Our independent SOC 2 compliance testing is vital to the success of our relationships with our clients.”
