WatServ Achieves SOC 2 Type II Compliance for Second Year in a Row


February 1, 2022

TORONTO, February 1, 2022 – WatServ announced today that it has once again completed a successful SOC 2 Type II audit for its CloudOps managed services, receiving an “unqualified opinion” on its report. This result is considered the highest level of accomplishment and the report comes following an independent audit conducted from November 1, 2020 to October 31, 2021.

“SOC 2 Type II compliance demonstrates WatServ’s continued commitment to our clients and partners when it comes to information security,” said Dave Lacey, CEO of WatServ. “This gold star outcome further supports our objective to provide clients with complete confidence in our cloud managed services.”

A key industry standard in data security, SOC 2 compliance is determined by an independent audit conducted in accordance with principles established by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA). It requires companies to establish and follow strict information policies and procedures around security, availability, processing, integrity and confidentiality of customer data. More than just an audit on the internal controls design and implementation, the Type II also considers the effectiveness of controls over a set period.

For the second year in a row, WatServ’s accomplishment brings assurance to clients who rely on its cloud-managed services. WatServ is laser-focused on security and is continually exploring additional controls and certifications to provide best-in-class cloud managed services.
