ALPHARETTA, Ga., July 17, 2023 – Benchmark Technology Group, Inc., a leading reseller serving financial institutions with IT services and logistics, banking equipment, cash and check automation solutions announced today the successful completion of its Service Organization Control (SOC) 2 Type 2 certification. This certification demonstrates compliance with the rigorous security standards established by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA). By completing this voluntary audit, Benchmark Technology Group further affirms its long-standing commitment to the highest level of data security.
SOC 2 is a technical auditing process that measures the effectiveness of an organization’s safeguards and controls over its information systems. The evaluation process can cover both customer-facing applications and a company’s systems and protocols for handling data internally. SOC 2 Type 1 certification confirms the existence of appropriate internal controls that meet the AICPA Trust Services Criteria for security at a given point in time; SOC 2 Type 2 certification involves a more rigorous ongoing audit that tests those processes over a period of at least six months.
“Earning SOC 2 Type 2 certification is a major milestone for our company and an important indicator of how seriously we take our commitment to data security,” said Preston Herrin, President, Benchmark Technology Group. “We are doing all the right things to secure data and protect our internal systems.”.
As organizations face ever-evolving cyber threats, they want to know that their partners’ systems, on which their data resides, are proactively secured.
“For us, it’s all about our customers,” said Jack Malinowski, Chief Technology Officer, Benchmark Technology Group. “Financial institutions of all sizes trust us with their sensitive data as we manage software installations for them and their clients, oversee technology conversion projects, access restricted areas in branches, handle the destruction of confidential data, and provide help desk support. And we’ll continue to invest in our infrastructure to ensure that the financial institutions we serve can trust our solutions.”
Benchmark Technology Group’s successful achievement of the SOC 2 Type 2 certification makes it a validated secure choice for financial institutions and their treasury services customers.
