Thrive Maintains Effective Security Controls According to Recent SOC 2 Report
Toronto, Ontario - November 22, 2021 – Today, Thrive Career Wellness Inc. announced that the company has undergone a System and Organization Controls (SOC) 2 examination resulting in a CPA’s report stating that management of Thrive maintained effective controls over the security of its Career Wellness Platform system. 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 used by the service organization to process customers’ information.
"We are pleased that our SOC 2 report has shown we have the appropriate controls in place to mitigate risks related to security” said Tristan Toye, Chief Technology Officer. “While many claim to adhere to best practices, and on paper meet security requirements, for us being able to demonstrate our commitment through engaging a 3rd party such as BARR Advisory, P.A. was an obvious step forward to build even greater confidence around our security practices with customers. Working in both the private sector (with SMBs to fortune 500 companies) and the public sector (with various levels of government programs) across the globe, operational practices around security are core to how we think about our customers and users' needs.”
The following principle has been developed by the American Institute of CPAs (AICPA) for use by practitioners in the performance of trust services engagements:
Security: The system is protected against unauthorized access (both physical and logical).
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.
