Alara Passes Independent Third-Party HIPAA and SOC II Audit without Exceptions, Underscoring Commitment to Data Security
October 31, 2023 – Alara is proud to announce the successful completion of a HIPAA and SOC II Type II audit by independent auditor Sensiba. Alara’s SOC 2 Type 2 report did not have any noted exceptions and was therefore issued a “clean” audit opinion from Sensiba.
The third-party audit affirms Alara’s commitment to data security and privacy for its customers. Developed by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA), the SOC 2 information security audit provides a report on the examination of controls relevant to the trust services criteria categories covering security, availability, processing integrity, confidentiality, and privacy. A SOC 2 Type 2 report describes a service organization’s systems, whether the design of specified controls meets the relevant trust services categories, and assesses the effectiveness of those controls over a specified period of time.
The audit consisted of a rigorous review of the company’s internal controls, policies, and procedures related to security, availability, and confidentiality. The extensive audit process evaluated Alara’s physical and logical access controls, change management protocols, risk assessment activities, vendor management, and incident response plans. “Achieving this clean audit report underscores our team’s tireless effort to embed security and compliance into every aspect of our platform,” said Simon Rascovsky, CTO of Alara. “Our customers trust us with sensitive data, and we take that responsibility seriously.”
Alara builds on this achievement by maintaining its HIPAA and SOC II compliance on an ongoing basis. The company implements rigorous internal monitoring, making enhancements to fortify its security posture and support customer needs.
This audit milestone comes on the heels of Alara recently being awarded an NIH grant, recognizing its potential for healthcare innovation.
