Buffalo, NY (October 4, 2016) — Avalon Document Services and DIGITS LLC (a division of Avalon) have successfully completed the Shared Assessments Program Standardized Information Gathering and Agreed Upon Procedures (SIG AUP). The SIG AUP is an audit used by organizations to evaluate their information security program, which is inclusive of data protection, privacy, and business resiliency from IT failure. Avalon/DIGITS retained and independent CPA firm to complete the audit, which consisted of the evaluation of policies, procedures, and controls for the purpose of alignment with current regulations, industry standards, guidelines, and information security best practices.
The SIG AUP provides Avalon/DIGITS and their clients the confidence in knowing they were audited using the latest industry best practices and standards as it relates to the security controls outlined in all domains of risk management. The report provides a fact-based statement that details the presence of security controls based on a broad assessment of various information security domains. The audit plays a significant role in recognizing and validating the efforts taken by Avalon/DIGITS to ensure the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of their clients' data.
"The Shared Assessments Program is an extensive audit program that has allowed Avalon and DIGITS to rigorously assess and manage IT, security, privacy, and business continuity risk. Our clients' data is the most critical aspect of our business and we strongly believe that taking steps to ensure we are considering all areas of risk not only makes a more secure company but sets us apart from our competitors," says Kyle Cavalieri, Avalon's Chief Information Officer.
