SAN FRANCISCO – March 11, 2020 –Abnormal Security, a leader in protecting large enterprises from Business Email Compromise (BEC) attacks, today announced completion of the Service Organization Control (SOC 2) examination of the Abnormal Cloud Email Security Platform, earning SOC 2 Type 2 compliance. Conducted by Coalfire Controls, LLC, a fully licensed, accredited CPA firm and affiliate of Coalfire Systems, Inc, the voluntary examination confirms Abnormal Security’s commitment to inscrutable operating effectiveness.

Completion of the SOC 2 Type 2 examination indicates that selected Abnormal Security infrastructure, software, people, data, processes and procedures have been formally reviewed.

“The successful completion of this in-depth examination validates that the necessary security processes and controls are in place for our customers who rely on us to stop the most sophisticated business email compromise attacks,” said Evan Reiser, CEO, Abnormal Security. “We’re especially proud to have completed the examination without exceptions.”
