SOC 2 Type 2
The rise of cloud computing has played a key role in the number of businesses that outsource functions to service organizations. Associated liability concerns elevated the marketplace demand for assurance regarding the confidentiality and privacy of information processed by a service organization’s system. Service Organization Controls (SOC) was created as a result.
The SOC 2 report looks at a service organization’s controls relevant to the security, availability, or processing integrity of a service organization’s system or the privacy or confidentiality of the information the system processes. The report uses the Trust Services Principles and Criteria (TSPs), including organization and management, communications, risk management and design and implementation of controls, monitoring of controls, logical and physical access controls, system operations, and change management.
At Integrant we recognize this imperative and maintain SOC 2 compliance as a result.
We secure the services of an independent, certified Security Officer with over 20 years of experience in managing complex computing environments who performs an annual SSAE 16 audit to ensure that we comply with our security policies and controls.
ISO is the largest developer of voluntary international standards in the world. The goal of these standards is to provide premier specifications for products and services. Because these standards are developed through worldwide consensus, they have the significant value-add of facilitating international trade.
ISO 27001/2 is a specification for an Information Security Management System (ISMS). The nature of our services does not require we are ISO 27001/2 certified, but we map our policies and procedures to ISO 27001/2 to further enhance the security we provide for our clients.
Egypt and Jordan IP Law
Both Egypt and Jordan have IP security laws in place that meet World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) requirements. Egypt Law No. 82, passed in 2002, addresses the Protection of Intellectual Property Rights. Law 82/2002 reflects the major provisions of the Trade Related Aspects of Intellectual Property Rights (TRIPs) Agreement and was supported by the U.S. government and the U.S. private sector.
In Jordanian law, there are 62 texts surrounding IP law. Jordan’s accession to the Trade-Related Aspects of Intellectual Property Rights (TRIPS) Agreement and the country’s level of IP protection have brought many new opportunities to the country.
Many large technology companies have offices in Egypt and Jordan, providing further validation of the support provided by country law related to IP. Members of the U.S.-Egypt Business Council include Microsoft, Oracle, GE, Google, GM, FedEx, Visa, Xerox, Merck, and MetLife. U.S.-based companies in Jordan include Google, Microsoft, Yahoo, and Cisco, American Express, General Electric, and others.
Integrant has in place an internal Compliance Department headed by our VP of International Business. This department monitors labor laws, tax laws, security and IP laws specific to Egypt and Jordan.
