FAIRFAX, Virginia, August 10, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — GRS Technology Solutionsa cybersecurity and technology consulting firm that has supported small and medium-sized businesses in the Washington, DC area since 2008, recently announced the achievement of Service Organization Compliance (SOC) Type 2 certification. This milestone demonstrates the outstanding commitment of GRS to its customers, ensuring that their critical data assets are reliable and secure.
GRS’s dedicated team of highly qualified cyber security experts work diligently to achieve SOC 2 certification. This certification is achieved through a comprehensive and extensive external audit that certifies that GRS fully complies with a set of defined systems and processes to ensure rigorous protection of the information security assets of its customers. As part of this effort, GRS has partnered with A-LIGN, a licensed SOC 2 auditor, to audit and certify that GRS’s managed IT and cybersecurity program meets the rigorous requirements set forth by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA ). These criteria include strict controls regarding the security, availability, processing, integrity, privacy and confidentiality of the infrastructure and systems.
According to the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), cybersecurity threats are growing significantly and pose serious and potentially devastating threats to intellectual property, business operations, and financial security (exceeding 6 trillion dollars per annum for damages). GRS’s highly expert team of professionals understands the complexity of these risks and is committed to protecting its customers by protecting their data assets. “We have made a significant investment in this certification because we are truly committed to taking advanced measures to provide first-class security services to our customers and ensure that their information security and privacy assets are protected and trusted,” said Larry Burbano, CEO of GRS. “This is absolutely critical for any company in today’s cybersecurity environment. It is an integral part of our commitment to trusted relationships with each individual GRS customer and is at the heart of their successful growth and profitability.”
According to Burbano, “Our next compliance goal as a company is to complete a Level 2 Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) audit based on the NIST 800-171 framework. This will provide engagement and value to our DoD customers by delivering an assessment of CMMC L2 requirements.” GRS’s internal cyber security team expects to achieve this milestone by the end of this year.
