We are proud to announce that we have successfully obtained our second-year SOC 2 audit certification. This achievement represents an annual milestone in our commitment to data security, confidentiality, and the overall trustworthiness of our platform. By undergoing and passing the rigorous SOC 2 examination for the second consecutive year, we reaffirm our dedication to meeting the highest standards of information security management and compliance.
What is SOC 2 Audit Certification?
SOC 2, which stands for Service Organization Control 2, is an internationally recognized auditing standard developed by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA). It focuses on the evaluation of a service organization's controls related to security, availability, processing integrity, confidentiality, and privacy.
SOC 2 audits provide assurance to clients and stakeholders that a company has implemented robust security practices and safeguards to protect sensitive data and systems.
The SOC 2 audit certification involves a comprehensive assessment conducted by independent auditors who evaluate an organization's control activities and their alignment with the established criteria. This examination involves a detailed review of policies, procedures, and evidence of operational effectiveness across multiple areas, including data center security, information technology processes, personnel security, and more.
The audit's primary objective is to ensure that service providers adequately protect customer data and meet industry-accepted best practices.
