Company Renews Commitment to Data Security, Confidentiality, and Availability With Audits and Certifications for SOC 2 Type 2
SCOTTSDALE, ARIZ. — GlobalMed, a leading provider of virtual health solutions, today announced the successful completion of its SOC 2 Type 2 examination.
While the COVID-19 emergency sparked a surge in telemedicine adoption and relaxed security and reimbursement rules, it also presented an increased threat to healthcare cybersecurity. As telehealth enabled remote connections to help limit exposure and contamination, it also increased risk across applications.
“We know that attackers will keep trying to infiltrate healthcare organizations – and we know that virtual care delivery is here to stay,” said Joel E. Barthelemy, Chief Executive Officer at GlobalMed. “We are committed to safeguarding customer data and operating a world-class infosec program. This includes achieving the highest levels of security attestations and providing the safest and most reliable solutions on the market.”
The SOC 2 Type 2 examination covered GlobalMed’s virtual health platform related to meeting the AICPAs criteria for Security, Availability, Processing Integrity, Confidentiality and Privacy for managing customer data.
