Furthering Our Commitment to Data Security in Higher Education Marketing and Enrollment Services

Archer Education, a leader in higher education marketing and enrollment services, is proud to announce the receipt of a clean System and Organization Controls (SOC) 2, Type 1 attestation report. This milestone is the culmination of an intensive third-party auditor’s assessment of the company’s internal controls in alignment with the AICPA, Trust Services Criteria for Security and Confidentiality.

The SOC 2, Type 1 compliance showcases Archer Education’s commitment to security and confidentiality for its employees and partners

Brian Hartnack, CEO of Archer Education, expressed his thoughts on this critical accomplishment:

“At Archer Education, protecting client data is not just a responsibility, it’s a core value. Achieving SOC 2, Type 1 compliance is a testamet to our relentless pursuit of excellence in data security. We’re setting a standard in higher education marketing and enrollment by deploying internal systems and controls that meet the highest standards for protecting the security and confidentiality of information processed by our systems.”

Regarded as the gold standard for evaluating compliance with data security standards, the SOC 2, Type 1 audit plays a vital role in organizational oversight, vendor management programs, corporate governance, and risk management processes. It confirms adherence to best practices for securing sensitive internal and customer data, encompassing information security and confidentiality, as outlined by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA).

This milestone reflects Archer Education’s leadership in providing managed services related to growing student engagement and enrollments. By embodying the rigorous standards of the AICPA, Archer Education emphasizes its leading position in delivering some of the highest levels of data protection in higher education marketing and enrollment. Archer is working diligently to prepare for a SOC2 Type II audit in 2024
