RedVision Completes SOC 2 Security Control Standards Exam

September 1, 2015

RedVision, a national provider of title and real property research solutions, announced it has completed a Service Organization Controls 2 (SOC 2) Type 1 standards of control examination. This independent affirmation confirms that RedVision’s critical controls are effectively managing the security, availability and confidentiality of client information.

The SOC 2 is based on Trust Services Principles, which according to the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA), “helps differentiate entities from their competitors by demonstrating to stakeholders that the entities are attuned to the risks posed by their environment and equipped with the controls that address those risks.”

Completion of the SOC 2 Type1 examination indicates that RedVision’s processes, procedures and controls involved in storing, handling and transmitting data securely have been formally evaluated and tested by an independent audit firm. The evaluation included an assessment of the company’s data center security management, written policies and procedures, physical security, network architecture, user access management, network and systems monitoring and software development.

“Many of our clients rely on us to protect their clients’ information,” says Brian Twibell, CEO of RedVision. “As a result, RedVision has continuously implemented best-practice controls demanded by their customers to address information security and compliance risks. Earning this accreditation demonstrates RedVision’s continued commitment to maintaining the industry’s highest control standards for operations, compliance and security.”

RedVision’s customers can incorporate its Service Auditor’s Report in its compliance programs as proof that appropriate controls are in place. 

"Data security and privacy are top priorities for RedVision,” added Joe Ross, chief technology officer at RedVision. “The successful completion of the comprehensive examination reaffirms RedVision’s ongoing commitment to creating and maintaining best-practice industry controls for the highest protection and security of our customers’ sensitive information.”

A SOC 2 examination represents that a service organization has been through a comprehensive evaluation of its control activities as they relate to the applicable Trust Services Principles and Criteria. A Type 1 report not only includes the service organization’s system description but also includes testing of the design and operating effectiveness of the service organization's controls.
