Securing a top SaaS security position in the retail and wholesale energy industry

NORWELL, Mass. – Energy Services Group (ESG), the retail and wholesale
energy industry’s leading provider of SaaS solutions for empowering energy choice globally,
announced receipt of its Service Organization Control 2 Type II (SOC 2) attestation providing
independent validation that the company’s internal security controls are in accordance with the
American Institute of Certified Public Accountants’ (AICPA) applicable Trust Services Principles
and Criteria (TSPC).

This certification demonstrates ESG’s leadership in the retail and wholesale energy industry,
with an established framework for internal controls that enable accountability and a
commitment to security. ESG’s framework facilitates operating effectiveness, and increased
efficiencies that render safe, secure and improved platforms, while helping to build increased

the cloud. SOC 2 compliance requires both a technical audit and the implementation of
comprehensive information security policies and procedures.

Paul Etherington, Chief Information Security Officer at ESG, said: “ESG will continue its
commitment to informational security and maintaining an industry leading best in class security
program. All future security enhancements, controls and policies will be included in ESG’s
