Certification ensures data privacy for clients and end-users, deepens ALOM’s global supply chain security
ALOM, a global leader in supply chain management, has achieved Service Organization Control (SOC2) Type I certification for its cloud information security and data privacy protection measures.
SOC2 is one of the most coveted and rigorous information-security certifications, enabling ALOM to even more fully deliver premier data privacy, integrity and trusted client relationships that are integral to its supply chain services for Fortune 500 corporations and global innovators. In particular, its customer-facing eCommerce sites ensure rigorous security protocols in the collection of private data needed for fulfillment, payment services and traceability.
“Being a global supply chain leader, we are committed to ensuring world-class IT system and data security. ALOM systems are built to manage complex global supply chain networks processing large volumes of transactions. “With SOC2 certification, ALOM adds yet another layer of expertise and assurance to our clients as they do business in a world with increasing uncertainty and risk factors,” said ALOM President and CEO Hannah Kain.
As a SOC-certified company, ALOM establishes and adheres to strict information security policies and procedures, encompassing the security, availability, processing, integrity, and confidentiality of client data. SOC2 certification verifies that an expertly trained independent accounting and auditing firm has examined an organization’s non-financial reporting control objectives and activities.
“Keeping our clients’ data secure is our highest priority,” added Brandon Marugg, Chief Technology and Privacy Officer at ALOM. “In this unprecedented time we are all extremely reliant on technology and must remain especially vigilant in keeping our systems secure so that our customers can focus on making their businesses successful.”
To optimize its global supply chain operations, ALOM is an award-winning technology leader recognized for industry innovation and environmental sustainability practices. The company utilizes proprietary order management systems and operational processes with built-in data security and privacy protections, including disaster recovery protocols and redundant system data backups.
Throughout its 23-year trajectory it has expanded its presence to 19 locations including Europe, Asia and North America, providing state-of-the-art technology solutions, data-driven business intelligence and capacity growth initiatives to enhance supply chain visibility and mitigate the challenges of global trade uncertainty.
Additionally, ALOM is certified and complies with the EU-US and UK-US Privacy Shield framework, each of which require ALOM to maintain certain safeguards for personal data transferred to the United States.
SOC2 is an auditing procedure that ensures that a company’s information security measures are in line with the unique parameters of today’s cloud requirements. SOC2 requires companies to establish and follow strict information security policies and procedures, encompassing the security, availability, storage and confidentiality of customer data.
Kain concluded, “We respect the rights of the end-users and consumers to have their data safeguarded and kept private. Supply chain breaches are considered one of the biggest IT security risks, and we are committed to facing this threat head-on.”
