Konica Minolta’s IT Services Division Awarded Coveted SOC 2, Type II Certification
Certification demonstrates Konica Minolta’s continued commitment to client experience and data security
Mississauga, ON. – December 6, 2018 Konica Minolta Business Solutions (Canada) Ltd., a leading managed security service provider, is proud to announce that it has been awarded the coveted SOC 2 (System and Organization Controls), Type II certification. This highly sought-after compliance standard developed by the American Institute of CPAs requires that Konica Minolta adhere to strict policies and procedures related to the security and availability of client data within the company’s Managed Services practice.
"Trust is huge for us," said Ted Garner, President IT Weapons, IT Services division of Konica Minolta. "We want our clients to feel safe knowing that their personal, financial, or just sensitive information is secure and available to them at all times. By meeting the rigorous standards required of the SOC 2, Type II certification, our clients can rest assured knowing they can trust Konica Minolta’s MSSP services.”
The SOC 2 Type II audit adds security and availability to the list of management controls for the systems and information within IT Weapons' Managed Services practice. Unlike SOC 2 Type I certifications, the Type 2 standard requires that the information control mechanisms in place be audited for a time to ensure the processes are effective. This rigorous process provides additional security and availability assurances to all clients of IT Weapons when it comes to their data and information.
The SOC 2 certification was completed by an independent auditor in accordance with principles established by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA).
