Achieving SOC 2 compliance highlights HubSync's commitment to the top CPA firms and tax professionals' highest standards for managing customer data

BOSTON, July 27, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- HubSync, the industry's first fully digital, end-to-end productivity platform for top CPA firms and tax professionals, announced today they have completed the SOC 2® Type 1 examination and are officially SOC 2 compliant.

"HubSync's SOC 2 certification is essential to doing business in our industry and our clients expect the highest level of security and compliance," said HubSync CEO, John McGowan. "We were already operating with stringent policies and procedures, but receiving a formal SOC 2 certification is an important step in our business evolution. Laika accelerated our SOC 2 compliance process with their expertise and technology automation and our partnership resulted in a seamless SOC2 process."

SOC 2 is a rigorous compliance standard developed by the American Institute of CPAs (AICPA) that is designed to specify how organizations should manage customer data. As part of the certification process, HubSync completed a thorough compliance audit, providing documentation on processes, data management infrastructure, and a progressive approach to data access permissions.

To earn this certification, HubSync partnered with Laika, a compliance-as-a-service platform that helps companies manage infosec and privacy compliance, obtain security certifications and build credibility with their customers. HubSync executed SOC 2 Type 1 by working with Laika's integrated audit feature via Laika Compliance, LLC.
