The accomplishment marks the seventh successful American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) SOC 2 report for Nahan, and the first with the HITRUST CSF (Common Security Framework) mapping.

“Along with our PCI DSS certification and third-party risk assessments, our SOC 2 engagement and report is one of our most important security initiatives of the year,” said Curt Tillotson, Nahan’s Chief Operating Officer.

“And now that we’ve successfully mapped and met the rigorous HITRUST CSF requirements to our SOC 2 report, our customers and prospects can be confident in yet another way we show our dedication to information security and their data protection.”

– Curt Tillotson, Chief Operating Officer, Nahan Printing

As in earlier years, Copeland Buhl & Company PLLP of Wayzata, Minnesota, conducted Nahan’s SOC 2 engagement. The audit confirmed Nahan designed and effectively operated their policies, procedures, and controls during the audit period to meet the AICPA’s Trust Services Criteria related to security, availability, confidentiality, and others.

The HITRUST CSF aligns the requirements from other security frameworks such as HIPAA, PCI DSS, and ISO, and provides details on how to carry out the required controls.

Nahan’s combined SOC 2 + HITRUST CSF report provides a “best-of-both-worlds” approach. The report maps the Trust Services Criteria to the HITRUST CSF and allows Nahan to illustrate their compliant controls in a single report for their stakeholders, clients, and prospects.

Author: Joseph Jachimiec, Security Administrator

SAINT CLOUD, MN – MAY 14, 2020 – Nahan Printing, Inc., award-winning provider of commercial print, direct mail, and digital solutions, announced its achievement of Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) Compliance and Certification for 2020.

PCI Compliance is for entities that transmit, process, or store credit card data. The standard guides organizations in protecting cardholder data by preventing fraud and securing Cardholder Data Environments (CDEs).

2020 marks the fifth year in a row that Nahan has earned the demanding certification. To meet compliance requirements, Nahan performed ongoing management and auditing of physical, technical, and administrative controls of their CDE throughout the year.


The successful audit resulted in Nahan’s Attestation of Compliance (AOC) for Service Providers. The AOC reviews Nahan’s compliance in detail by assessing the 12 main requirements of PCI DSS. Requirements include maintaining a vulnerability management program, implementing strong access control measures, maintaining information security policies, and more.

FRSecure LLC of Minnetonka, Minnesota, conducted Nahan’s PCI audit. As a PCI DSS Qualified Security Assessor (QSA), FRSecure provided the necessary expertise to evaluate and consult Nahan on their PCI DSS compliance.

“Achieving our PCI certification is one of the yearly milestones of Nahan’s ongoing Information Security Program,” stated Curt Tillotson, Nahan’s Chief Operating Officer.

“Our commitment to information security doesn’t stop with our PCI environment, either. It extends throughout our organization. Our customers not only appreciate this, they require it.”
