eDiscovery Leader CDS Reassessed for Security, Availability, and Confidentiality of Data

NEW YORK – Complete Discovery Source (CDS), a leader in eDiscovery, announced today that the company has successfully completed the Type 2 SOC 2 examination, continuing its commitment to data security. This is the second year CDS has passed the Type 2 SOC 2 examination, an enhancement over the Type 2 SOC 1 examination completed in prior years. This evaluation of CDS’s electronic discovery hosting services audited the principles of Security, Availability, and Confidentiality. The SOC 2 examination was conducted by independent third party auditor Schellman & Company, Inc. and covered the period from January 1, 2017 through December 31, 2017.

The SOC 2 standards apply to compliance or operations at a service provider organization. This report attests to the controls that CDS utilizes specific to Security, Availability, and Confidentiality, three of the five Trust Services principles outlined by the AICPA:

  • Security – The CDS environment is protected against unauthorized access, use, or modification to meet CDS’s commitments and system requirements.
  • Availability – The CDS environment is available for operation and use to meet CDS’s commitments and system requirements.
  • Confidentiality – Information designated as confidential is protected to meet CDS’s commitments and system requirements.

“Our clients trust CDS with the most sensitive data, which means we have to take security very seriously,” said Nyi Htwe, Chief Technology Officer at CDS. “We will continue to pursue the strictest security controls and examinations available as part of our ongoing commitment to protecting client information.”
