MIAMI--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Original Impressions (OI), a full service marketing communications company, owned and operated by Postal Center International (PCI), the largest, state-of-the-art transactional printer, postal and mail processing service organization, today announced the successful completion of the Service Organization Control (SOC) 2 audit. Conducted by Berkowitz Pollack Brant Advisors, a leading certified public accounting firm, the audit affirms the Company’s security practices, policies, procedures and operations meet the SOC 2 standards for security, availability and confidentiality.
“Since purchasing Original Impressions six months ago, we have made critical investments in the business that will help to ensure our clients’ evolving needs are met while driving efficiencies – and accountability – at every level of the business,” said Ismael Diaz, president, Postal Center International. “Our goal is to reinforce our policies and procedures to ensure compliance with the law, as well as openness and accountability with our clients, employees and vendor partners.”
The SOC 2 report verifies the existence of internal controls, which have been designed and implemented to meet the requirements for the security principles set forth in the Trust Services Principles and Criteria for Security. It provides a thorough review of how Original Impressions’ internal controls affect the security, availability and processing integrity of the systems it uses to process users’ data and the confidentiality and privacy of the information processed by these systems. This independent validation of security controls is crucial for clients in highly regulated industries.
In addition to SOC 2 compliance, Postal Center International has made a number of technological enhancements to bolster the reliability and security of Original Impressions’ infrastructure. These include additional layers of redundancy to the Company’s enterprise-wide network architecture; security cameras and entry access control systems to optimize visibility facility-wide; and robust and reliable high-speed cabling to ensure rapid and consistent connectivity and transmission of data for real-time delivery.
“These comprehensive solutions are part of a broader, more reliable technology strategy that plays a key role in the integration and optimization of the critical systems that make our business operate,” said Diaz. “These additions, while helping to meet our current needs and plan for seamless technology add-ons and changes in the future, place our clients and, the business they entrust us with, at the forefront of all that we do.”
