Cincinnati, Ohio, September 6, 2023— Benchmark Gensuite®, provider of the industry-leading platform of digital Environmental, Health, & Safety & Sustainability solutions, is proud to announce its successful completion of its SOC 1 and SOC 2 audits as of August 16, as it looks to affirm its commitment to data security for customers and prospects.

The audits were conducted by leading compliance assessor A-LIGN, a trusted partner for over 2,500 worldwide organizations, aiding in the mitigation of cybersecurity vulnerabilities.

The SOC 1 audit is a comprehensive, globally recognized attestation that validates Benchmark Gensuite’s commitment to corporate governance and the accuracy and reliability of its financial statements. The successful completion of this audit serves to provide current and potential customers with the assurance that Benchmark Gensuite has the controls in place to protect the data that impacts their financial reporting.

“Congratulations to Benchmark Gensuite for completing a SOC 1 audit, a widely recognized signal of trust and security,” said Steve Simmons, COO of A-LIGN. “It’s great to work with organizations like Benchmark Gensuite, who understand the value of expertise in driving an efficient audit and the importance of a high-quality final report.”

The SOC 2 examination, established by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA), is designed for organizations of all sizes, industries, and scopes, to ensure the personal assets of their potential and existing customers are protected. SOC 2 reports are recognized worldwide and affirm that a company’s infrastructure, software, people, data, policies, procedures and operations have been formally reviewed.

“A SOC 2 audit is a statement about an organization’s commitment to protecting their information.” said Stephanie Oyler-Rankin, SOC Practice Lead at A-LIGN. “As a trusted third-party assessment firm, A-LIGN independently evaluates client data processes and procedures, governance on internal controls and security posture. Benchmark Gensuite’s SOC 2 report validates its commitment to data security and protection, as well as compliance with critical standards to mitigate cybersecurity threats.”

The successful completion of SOC 1 and SOC 2 audits underscores Benchmark Gensuite’s dedication to data security and corporate governance and determination to safeguard customer data and personal assets. As the company continues to prioritize excellence in EHS & Sustainability solutions, these audits further strengthen its position as an industry leader. Benchmark Gensuite looks forward to many more opportunities to demonstrate the robust strength of its IT data security programs and practices by pursuing and achieving certifications like the two they have announced today.
