TGI advances to SOC 2 Type 2 data security rating; Successfully completing another rigorous third-party audit by 360 Advanced

PHILADELPHIA, PA – After achieving the Service Organization Controls 2 (SOC 2) Type 1 data security rating last year, TGI has taken its dedication to data security to the next level and has completed the requirements to earn the advanced SOC 2 Type 2 designation.

The demanding third-party examination that led to compliance with the data security standards was administered by the professional IT audit and compliance staff at 360 Advanced, a national Qualified Security Assessor, HITRUST CSF Assessor and Certified Public Accountant firm based in Tampa, FL.

“Achieving SOC 2 Type 2 compliance has proved to be a deal maker for us, especially with the numerous customers we serve in the financial services industry,” said Rick Elfreth, TGI’s Executive Vice President. “In a recent project, TGI was selected to print and fulfill a large run mailer for a financial institution using variable data. The customer chose TGI because they were confident that their strict security standards would not be compromised. The SOC 2 compliance gave the customer peace of mind that their data was secure and protected within a controlled environment.”

“To me, it comes down to confidence and trust,” commented Scott Elfreth, COO of TGI. “Those are the two words that I want our current customers and potential customers to take away from what this audit means to their businesses.”

Both executives agreed that the audit and compliance designations give TGI a competitive edge by bringing added value to their services, and that educating clients and potential clients about the importance is essential.

According to the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants, achieving the SOC 2 Type 2 report attests to the ongoing maintenance of a service organization’s IT security and compliance systems, procedures and processes.

It’s official! After going through a vigorous Third-Party audit process, TGI is proud to announce our successful completion of the Service Organization Controls 2 (SOC2) examination by security audit firm 360 Advanced P.A.

SOC 2 is a series of tested controls built on data, IT infrastructure and building security. The successful completion of the SOC 2 compliance process provides our clients with the confidence that the extensive control systems, infrastructure, and security policies put in place by the audit will safeguard their data. Today, more than ever security is paramount. TGI works for many companies in the Pharmaceutical, Financial, and Manufacturing industries and demand this level of security to ensure their data and reputations are protected. We’ve always strived to provide the highest level of operational excellence for our clients, and now we are able to provide them with the most secure environment possible for their data.

Achieving SOC2 Type 1 level compliance creates many more opportunities than ever for our company and clients, but why? We went to a few people on the TGI team for their thoughts and got these reactions:

“TGI is trusted by our clients to meet their important deadlines on a daily basis. In my many dealings with Financial Companies, I have learned firsthand how important data security is to them. Achieving SOC 2 Type 1 Compliance not only reinforces our commitment to our customers, it also shows our prospects how important data security is to us, as well!” Bob Smith, Account Executive, TGI.

“With all of the data breaches in the news lately, we look, again, to be a leader in our space by demonstrating our commitment to protecting clients’ data. The new SOC 2 Compliance designation provides our clients and employees with the guarantee that they are operating in a safe environment. It is a great addition to our services.” Matt Marcen, Director of Client Services, TGI

“We’ve always focused on delivering cutting-edge marketing solutions utilizing the latest technologies. Our capabilities and technologies continue to evolve, and with all of the information and data that we receive on a daily basis, data security is a huge priority for us. Achieving the SOC2 Type 1 Compliance really validates our commitment to our clients and their safety, and also will open new doors in the future for TGI. We have built great relationships with our clients, and this will help us maintain and strengthen those relationships.” Maura Glacken, Marketing Coordinator, TGI
