This accomplishment signifies a significant milestone in our continued commitment to the security, privacy, and trustworthiness of the services we provide to our clients. The renewal of our SOC 2 Type II certification confirms our dedication to maintaining the highest standards of data security and privacy.
The SOC 2 Type II (System and Organization Controls 2 Type II) is a widely recognized framework for assessing and reporting on the security, availability, processing integrity, confidentiality, and privacy of a service organization's systems and processes.
The extent of the following five key principles is checked:
The "Type II" part of SOC 2 indicates that the assessment covers a specific time period (usually six to twelve months). This differs from SOC 2 Type I, which only assesses the design of controls at a specific point in time. an independent auditor conducts the assessment and attests to the effectiveness of the controls in place. The auditor examines the policies, procedures, and practices of the service organization and may perform tests to ensure that the controls are operating as intended. This makes sure that the measures put in place are not only designed effectively but also operate effectively over time.
Our partner in renewing repeatedly our SOC 2 certificate is Vanta. They helped us streamline the process by automating the collection of most of the evidence needed to prove compliance and providing clear guidance for the rest.
