Mastermind is proud to have completed a Type II System and Organization Control (SOC) 2 examination against the Security criteria.
The SOC 2 Type II examination is performed by an independent third-party and tests controls against Trust Services Criteria (TSC) as defined by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA). The examination was performed by Schellman & Company, LLC and a report with no exceptions was issued.
automotiveMastermind.com and its customer’s data is hosted through Microsoft Azure. Multi-layered security provided by Microsoft across all physical Data Centers, infrastructure, and operations in Azure ensures constant threat protection.
All data moved within Mastermind is in a private and protected environment. All data is encrypted both in transit and at rest which ensures all customer data is secure. Any stored data on-site is securely stored within protected facilities that include security guards, camera surveillance and cloud redundancy in case of a catastrophic event.
Mastermind utilizes role-based permissions controlled within Azure. This adheres to both PII (Personally Identifiable Information) laws and limits the scope of employee access, following the principle of least privilege.
