Certifications demonstrate Rival’s ongoing commitment to establishing, implementing, operating, monitoring, reviewing, maintaining, and improving information security management systems across the board

Vancouver, Canada (October 12, 2021) -- Rival Group Inc. today announced Rival Technologies Inc. has received SOC 2® Type 2 recertification, and Rival Group is now ISO/IEC 27001:2013 and HIPAA/HITECH certified. The cornerstones of Rival Group are Rival Technologies Inc. and Reach3 Insights.

“At Rival Group Inc., securing our customers’ information has been a foundational priority since the company’s inception,” said Rival Group’s CEO and Founder of Rival Technologies. Andrew Reid. “It is with immense pride that we can announce Rival Tech’s recertification and Rival Group’s new certifications as we strive to foster a culture of security awareness across all of our customer interactions.” 

The certifications are comprehensive security management standards that specify a set of best practices and controls. As an organization, Rival Group has examined its information security risks, designed a set of security controls to mitigate these risks, adopted a management process that reviews these controls on an ongoing basis, conducted an internal audit of the above to test for conformity, and finally had audits conducted by an external party, an audit firm called A-LIGN, that tested for conformity and issued these certifications.

A-LIGN, an independent, third-party auditor, found Rival Group Inc. to have technical controls in place and formalized IT Security policies, procedures, security measures, and countermeasures, that protect it from unauthorized access or compromise, and IT personnel were found to be conscientious and knowledgeable in best practices.

“As a company, we continuously aim to meet industry standards and exceed customer expectations,” added Reid. “Attaining these certifications is proof of our company’s dedication and commitment to protecting and managing customer data by ensuring a strong set of internationally recognized security controls are in place.”

Rival Technologies is SOC2 Type 2 certified, and Rival Group Inc. is an ISO/IEC 27001:2013 and HIPAA/HITECH certified organization. Reach3 Insights is included under Rival Group Inc.’s ISO and HIPAA certifications. These certifications demonstrate Rival Group Inc.'s continued commitment to information security at every level and ensures that the security of your data and information has been addressed, implemented, and properly controlled in all areas and recognizes the robust processes adopted throughout the entire organization.

Reid continued, “We remain committed to maintaining and continuously improving our security systems every day with our ongoing goal to strengthen our ‘culture of security awareness’ within the organization.
