Cybersecurity Ventures predicts that by the end of 2023, the global cost of cybercrime will escalate to $8 trillion annually, a staggering increase from $3 trillion in 2015.

In alignment with L+R's enduring mission to maximize value for our clients through the applied execution of design and technology, we are pleased to announce the successful completion of our SOC2 audit. This certification underscores L+R's commitment to integrating the highest levels of security and privacy as essential components of our value-driven offerings.

Understanding SOC 2 Certification

SOC 2 (Service Organization Control 2) is a rigorous, industry-wide standard designed to ensure that a company manages customer data with the highest levels of security and privacy. This certification, developed by the American Institute of CPAs (AICPA), is especially crucial for technology and service firms that store customer data in the cloud. It involves regular, detailed audits that assess how well a company safeguards data and how it manages customer information.

From Branding to Security Focus

Founded in 2012 as a branding firm, L+R has progressively evolved its service portfolio to include technology in 2016 and strategy, technology, and consulting in 2019. Throughout this journey, the focus has consistently been on delivering both business value and secure, user-friendly digital products to our clients and their customers.

Alex Levin, Founding Partner and Director of Strategy at L+R, stated, "As our capabilities have expanded, so has our understanding of the complex risks associated with the digital landscape. Achieving SOC2 compliance is a demonstration of our unyielding commitment to security and privacy for our clients, their customers, and ourselves. It signifies that our entire team, spanning production, sales, and operations, understands and embodies this commitment as a forward-looking standard in strategy, consulting, and design technology."

Upholding Highest Security Standards

The SOC2 Type II audit is a comprehensive evaluation designed to certify that an organization meets rigorous criteria for security and privacy. For L+R, this means that whether we are engaged in brand identity development, mobile application creation, or interface design, cybersecurity is an integral part of the process, especially in the secure transfer of digital files.

Given the rising cybersecurity threats, it is noteworthy that many professional service providers have yet to give proper attention to information security. L+R stands apart by proactively embracing SOC2 standards across all departments, thereby taking meaningful steps to address today's increasingly complex security challenges.
