Companies today dedicate broad efforts, even whole departments, to corporate governance, compliance, and risk reduction. At TCDI, the primary efforts aimed at reducing risk extend to the products and services we provide our clients. We combine the careful hiring and training of staff with the implementation of standards, processes and controls in all aspects of what we do.
In addition to ongoing internal audits and the periodic audits performed by our clients, TCDI submits to an annual independent Service Organization Control (SOC) audit and report. Specifically, the SOC 2 Type II report concentrates on the system controls relevant to one or more of the Trust Services Principles of Security, Availability, Processing Integrity, Confidentiality, and Privacy.
While the SOC 2 audit and report are not designed specifically for the eDiscovery industry, it does provide focused, audited efforts on the processes and controls relevant to the delivery of our products and services. It helps prove that we have the right knowledge, processes, and controls in place to perform our duties in a sound (defensible) and consistent (reproducible) manner.
