Independent audit demonstrates the company’s extensive security practices to safeguard customers

LocaliQ, Gannett Co., Inc.’s (NYSE: GCI) Digital Marketing Solutions (DMS) business, successfully achieved Service Organization Controls (SOC) 2 Type II audit and certification, which validates LocaliQ’s robust controls, effective risk management and adherence to industry best practices. LocaliQ is an all-in-one marketing platform used by local businesses across the country to attract, convert and retain customers. The certification provides a greater level of trust for both current and prospective business partners and customers after an extensive review which evaluated LocaliQ’s control design, implementation and operating effectiveness.

Designed by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA), the SOC 2 Type II auditing procedure examines a company’s commitment to data privacy and information security standards through five key criteria: security, availability, processing integrity, confidentiality and privacy. Obtaining SOC 2 Type II certification demonstrates rigorous safeguards protecting clients’ sensitive information and reassures stakeholders that client data is in capable hands.

“After an extensive auditing process, we are proud that LocaliQ is a SOC 2 Type II certified company,” said Chris Cho, President of Digital Marketing Solutions at Gannett. “This certification validates our commitment to the highest compliance standards in customer security and privacy, which is especially crucial to our many customers in heavily regulated industries like healthcare.”
