Industry: Human Resources

Background Screening platform pioneer passes security milestone and urges others to do the same.

Phoenix, AZ (PRUnderground) June 29th, 2020

BackChecked LLC, a leading Software as a Service (SaaS) provider to the background screening industry, announced today that it has completed a SOC 2 Type 2 audit, earning an unqualified opinion from the auditor with no deviations found.

“Since the company’s inception, the task of keeping consumer data secure has been our highest priority,” explained BackChecked president and co-founder, John Kloos. “Passing the AICPA’s SOC 2 Type 2 examination is a key milestone in that endeavor and we hope others in our space follow suit, if they have not already done so.”

BackChecked clients are Consumer Reporting Agencies (CRA’s), primarily engaged in FCRA-compliant pre-employment screening, on behalf of employers in the United States. The audit was commissioned by BackChecked in order to provide transparent proof of the company’s controls in the areas of Security, Availability and Confidentiality.

The SOC 2 Type 2 report has become the go-to compliance vehicle for cyber-service organizations because it is both rigorous and continuous. “It is no longer sufficient to simply house servers in a compliant data center or cloud environment,” Kloos went on to say. “It’s critical that you certify your own system and your own operation, as well.”
