ATLANTA, April 4, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- InComm, a leading prepaid product and transaction services company, is proud to announce today that On-Line Strategies Services, LLC (OLS), a wholly owned subsidiary of InComm, recently completed a Type 1 SOC 2 examination. This examination, formally known as a "Report on Controls at a Service Organization Relevant to Security, Availability, Processing Integrity, Confidentiality, or Privacy," demonstrates OLS's commitment to information and data protection.
"This successful examination is an important milestone in the operation of our information security program," said Terry Richards, President of OLS. "Seeking and completing a SOC 2 examination is evidence of our commitment to maintaining high standards of information security."
The examination was performed and completed on Jan. 15, 2016 by the independent CPA firm Schellman & Company, Inc. At the conclusion of the examination, the firm determined that OLS's platform, operation, policies and procedures met or surpassed the SOC 2 requirements. Of the five Trust Service principles that a service organization may opt to be evaluated against as part of a SOC 2 examination, OLS chose security and availability.
OLS is committed to performing these examinations on an ongoing basis in order to maintain a robust set of security standards.
