Industry Compliance Standards
We live in an ever-changing, complex world full of compliance and security regulations. Keeping track of all these demanding details can be overwhelming for any business to manage. Atlantic Metro is here to help you meet that challenge.
Atlantic Metro services and solutions meet the following industry compliance standards and regulations:
- SAS 70 Type II (Statement on Auditing Standards No. 70) – A SAS 70 audit independently verifies the validity and functionality of a data center's control activities and processes. These control activities and processes are especially important to customers within the healthcare, insurance and financial markets, as well as to publicly traded companies who must validate the security of their financial and sensitive information controls.
- SSAE 16 (Statement on Standards for Attestation Engagements No. 16) – The SSAE16 audit minimizes the need for multiple sets of auditors to separately examine the same set of controls that govern a third party's services. "SAS" is an acronym for Statement on Auditing Standards, which are standards issued by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants.
- SOC 1 (Service Organization Control) & SOC 2 – Reports, effectively known as either SOC 1 and SOC 2 are comprehensive frameworks put forth by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) geared towards reporting on controls at service organizations. The SOC framework is a specific set of reporting initiatives aimed at helping to clarify, distill, and bring about much needed transparency for reporting on controls at service organizations.
- HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) – HIPPA was enacted by the US Congress in 1996 to help protect the privacy of patient records and promote the efficient electronic exchange of patient information for better safety and productivity throughout the US healthcare system.
- PCI DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard) – The first version of the PCI DSS was released in 2004 by the major credit card companies Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover, and JCB to help protect their cardholders' account information and to help prevent credit card fraud.
- SOX (Sarbanes-Oxley Act) – The Sarbanes-Oxley Act was enacted by the US Congress and President in 2002 in response to corporate and accounting scandals of major public companies, such as Enron. The act contains reforms for all publicly-held companies' boards and management, and public accounting firms in the US. The act is also known as the Public Company Accounting Reform and Investor Protection Act of 2002.
