CLEVELAND, OH, October 4, 2023 – Augment Therapy®, a digital health company enhancing rehabilitative healthcare through immersive and gamified technology, announced today that it has completed a System and Organization Controls (SOC) 2® Type 2 Audit examination for its Augmented Reality Therapy System.
SOC 2® engagements are conducted within the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants’ (AICPA) AT-C 205, Reporting on Controls at a Service Organization framework.
Organizations are audited based on the trust service criteria outlined in the AICPA Reporting on Controls at a Service Organization Relevant to Security, Availability, Processing Integrity, Confidentiality, or Privacy (SOC 2®). The SOC 2® Type 2 report was completed by an independent auditing firm and provided an understanding of the service organization’s suitability of the design, implementation, and operating effectiveness of its internal controls. A service organization may select any or all trust service criteria applicable to its business. Augment Therapy chose to report on security. The successful completion of this voluntary engagement illustrates Augment Therapy’s ongoing commitment to create and maintain a secure operating environment for its clients’ confidential data.
Pease Bell CPA’s, the independent auditing firm that tested Augment Therapy’s controls, included an examination of their policies and procedures regarding cloud security, network connectivity, systems development life cycle, computer operations, logical access, data transmission, backup and disaster recovery, and other critical operational areas of their business. Upon completion of the audit, Augment Therapy received a Service Auditor’s Report with an opinion demonstrating that their policies, procedures, and infrastructure meet or exceed the stringent SOC 2® criteria.
“The successful completion of our SOC 2® Type 2 examination audit provides Augment Therapy’s clients with the assurance that the controls and safeguards we employ to protect and secure their data are in line with industry standards and best practices,” said Steve Blake, Co-Founder and CTO.
Augment Therapy believes information is one of the most valuable business assets to an organization, and partnership with Augment Therapy provides the necessary protection to an organization’s information assets to mitigate risks associated with the use and processing of information collected during business operations.
