August 12, 2021
Compliance initiative highlights continued commitment to data privacy and security
Austin, TX – August 12, 2021 – Ontic, the protective intelligence software innovator digitally transforming how companies actively identify, investigate, assess, watch and manage physical security threats, today announced the successful completion of its System and Organizational Controls (SOC) 2® Type 2 examination and HIPAA security compliance assessment. Ontic is committed to conducting business in a fair, lawful, and transparent manner while protecting data privacy and security, and its successful SOC 2 completion supports this commitment.
“Completing a SOC 2 examination is an important component of our solutions at Ontic,” said Scott Shepherd, Chief Legal Officer at Ontic. “The SOC 2 report shows that we have the appropriate controls in place to mitigate risks related to security and confidentiality with our SaaS solutions, and that we are safeguarding our clients’ data, which helps them maintain compliance within their own organizations.”
With the completion of the SOC 2 Type 2 examination and HIPAA assessment as part of a single streamlined engagement, Ontic has created a cohesive security posture across all its operations, allowing for more informed decisions about how best to protect client and partner information.
These efforts were completed by the professional and independent third-party audit firm, 360 Advanced, Inc. By integrating each of its examinations and assessments into a single, consolidated engagement, Ontic was able to reduce the number of resources that were required for their compliance initiative.
Ontic is the first protective intelligence software company to digitally transform how Fortune 500 and emerging enterprises proactively address physical threat management to protect employees, customers and assets. Ontic’s SaaS-based platform collects and connects threat indicators to provide a comprehensive view of potential threats while surfacing critical knowledge so companies can assess and action more to maintain business continuity and reduce financial impact. Ontic also provides strategic consulting, multidimensional services, education and thought leadership for safety and security professionals at major corporations via its Center for Protective Intelligence.
