vFairs Maintains Effective Security Controls According to Recent SOC 2 Report

ComplianceCopy link

Texas, US – 01-Mar-2024– Today, vFairs announced that the company has undergone a System and Organization Controls (SOC) 2 examination resulting in a CPA’s report stating that management of vFairs maintained effective controls over the security, availability, and confidentiality of its Event Management Platform system. The engagement was performed by BARR Advisory, P.A.

A SOC 2 report is designed to meet the needs of existing or potential customers who need assurance about the effectiveness of controls used by the service organization to process customers’ information.

"We are delighted to share that vFairs' SOC 2 report confirms the robust controls we have implemented, effectively mitigating risks associated with security, availability, and confidentiality," stated Muhammad Younas, CEO of vFairs.

These controls are pivotal to our business and client relationships. Security measures ensure the protection of sensitive data and maintain the trust our clients place in us. Availability guarantees seamless and reliable access to our platform, supporting the uninterrupted flow of events. Confidentiality measures underscore our commitment to safeguarding proprietary information, demonstrating accountability to both our clients and stakeholders. This commitment to security, availability, and confidentiality aligns with our core values and underscores our dedication to providing a secure and reliable event management platform.

The following principles and related criteria have been developed by the American Institute of CPAs (AICPA) for use by practitioners in the performance of trust services engagements:

● Security: The system is protected against unauthorized access (both physical and logical). ● Availability: The system is available for operation and use as committed or agreed. ● Processing Integrity: System processing is complete, valid, accurate, timely, and authorized to meet the entity’s objectives. ● Confidentiality: Information designated as confidential is protected as committed or agreed. ● Privacy: Personal information is collected, used, retained, disclosed, and disposed of to meet the entity’s objectives.

A SOC 2 report is an internal control report on the services provided by a service organization to its customers and provides valuable information that existing and potential customers of the service organization need to assess and address the risks associated with an outsourced service.

Current and prospective customers interested in a copy of our SOC 2 report may contact privacy@vfairs.com or visit our security trust portal at https://security.vfairs.com
