Premier One Awarded SOC 2 Type II Certification For Tenth Consecutive Year

Premier One, a national IT, cybersecurity and web services provider, has been designated with The American Institute of Public Accountants’ (AICPA) SOC 2 Type II certification. This marks the tenth consecutive year Premier One has received the certification.

The audit and certification were performed by national compliance services provider A-LIGN.

Considered by most to be the gold standard for data security and financial controls in the mortgage and real estate industry, the SOC 2 Type II certification was created by AICPA. The SOC 2 Type II designation is an auditing measurement indicating robust controls in the protection of confidential data and financial information from known and emerging threats. These controls pertain to security, availability, processing integrity, confidentiality and privacy.  For each year it received the designation, Premier One underwent an extensive audit after which an independent accounting and auditing firm confirmed that its processes, procedures and controls meet the standard.

“Being designated with a SOC 2 Type II certification is not something many businesses in our industry can say they’ve done ten times, but it’s really just par for the course to us if we’re going to be in the business of helping other businesses with their cyber defenses and overall data security,” said Shawn Fox, Chief Revenue Officer for Premier One.  “While it’s certainly an achievement we’re proud of, we view this certification not as a one-time occurrence but rather, an everyday standard.”
