CINCINNATI--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jun. 11, 2015--
CBTS, a leading technology solutions provider, recently underwent audits
to certify that its Infrastructure as a Service and its Dedicated Backup
offerings are compliant with SSAE-16/SOC requirements and the Health
Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA).
In May, CBTS underwent an objective evaluation of the design and
operating effectiveness of controls that address operations and
compliance, as well as controls that are relevant to its customers’
financial reporting. The independent auditing firm IS Partners LLC of
Horsham, Pa., performed the reviews. IS Partners’ professional staff has
collectively completed over 800 SAS 70, SSAE 16 and SOC audits, internal
control readiness assessments, trust service audits, HIPAA assessments,
and information technology audits.
"CBTS has always been committed to the security, availability and
confidentiality of our customers' data, applications and other
infrastructure," said Ryan Mast, vice president of managed services for
CBTS. "The successful completion of these audits and assessments
confirmed what we already knew, and will give our customers extra
assurance when they do business with us."
CBTS is a wholly owned subsidiary of Cincinnati Bell and serves
information-sensitive industries, including financial firms, health care
providers and hospitals that require SOC1, SOC2 and HIPAA compliance.
"This is truly an in-depth assessment of CBTS Managed Services," said
Mast. "These audits provide an additional layer of confidence for our
existing customers, and provide a written assertion from management
regarding the design and operating effectiveness of the controls being
