As Awair continues to make enhancements in security, SOC 2 Type 2 Compliance is the next phase in our process. The final report will be available during the first week in April.
Importance of Type 2
Since Awair’s founding, we have continued to pursue top-level data security practices. We want our customers to have peace of mind when they think about the privacy of their indoor air quality (IAQ) data. It should be available to those managing the buildings (employers, landlords, facilities, etc.) and the people accessing them. Sharing data, however, should not put other internal systems at risk. This is where SOC 2 Type 2 Compliance comes in: it details how companies, like Awair, safeguard company data and how well those controls are operating.
An independent auditor, Barr Advisory, conducted an audit of our servers and systems based on the standards and five trust principles set by AICPA. They will perform the audit annually and work with several large-scale technology companies, including SHI, Enseva, and C2FO.
Thanks for a collaborative effort, we have achieved compliance in the following areas:
We will continue to secure SOC 2 Type 2 reports on an ongoing basis, as well as perform penetration testing (pentesting) and support single sign-on (SSO). A copy of Awair’s SOC 2 Type 2 report is available to both prospective and current customers upon request.
Why does it seem significantly more difficult to concentrate on work when it’s hot outside? It has much more to do with our bodies than we may realize. A series of studies have proven that we are unable to concentrate and fully engage with our work if the temperature around us is not within a specific range; if you want to reach a peak level of productivity, you should work in an environment that stays between 68℉ and 76℉.
Crowded classrooms, meetings in closed door conference rooms, working from your makeshift WFH office with poor ventilation - all of these scenarios can cause high CO2 and significant decreases in cognition and productivity.What is carbon dioxide?Carbon dioxide is a naturally occurring gas that is measured in parts per million (ppm). A by-product of our metabolic process – we add CO2 into the air every time we exhale – it’s often used as an indicator of adequate building ventilation.
Ever noticed a yellow smog or wildfire haze? That dirty, smoky air is made of particle pollution. Overwhelming evidence shows that particle pollution – especially the smallest particles – can increase the risk of heart disease, lung cancer, and asthma attacks and can interfere with the growth and work of the lungs.
