What Online project or other accomplishment are you most proud of? Why?
We worked with a client whose success or failure depended on passing their SOC2 audit and were already in the reporting period, so time was critical. We quickly gathered a team to perform an initial gap assessment and set up an internal audit program designed to identify deficiencies, recommend improvements, and measure the continued compliance with policies and procedures. When we heard they passed their audit, we celebrated together!
