With Akitra’s help, Relcu was able to fulfill its need to get SOC 2 compliance rapidly to meet its customer requirements.

Recognizing the importance of demonstrating robust security practices, Relcu embarked on the journey to attain SOC 2 Type 2 compliance.

The Challenge

Relcu’s products and services are in the financial market; their customers are mainly US banks and financial institutions. Relcu needed help preparing for SOC 2 Type 2 compliance before working with Akitra. The following were some of the major problems:

Lack of Expertise: Relcu needed more internal know-how to successfully negotiate the SOC 2 architecture’s intricate demands.

Scope Determination: It took a lot of work to define the audit’s scope and determine which systems and procedures were under its purview.

Risk Assessment: The internal team was challenged to conduct an extensive risk assessment to find potential vulnerabilities and weaknesses.

Policy and Procedure Development: It took a lot of time and resources to develop and publish solid security policies and procedures that complied with SOC 2 regulations.

The Akitra team guided us throughout our entire compliance journey and process, and really, for me, SOC 2 was kind of complicated due to many policies, evidence, controls, integrations, and so on. However, Akitra had a very simple process with well-defined steps, which guided us really well.
