Upholding Enterprise-grade Security Standards with SOC 2 Compliance

 

Data, security, privacy, and confidentiality are words that you have probably been hearing a lot lately. Between the amount of data Google has on you, and the rows of personal details Facebook stores, data and the security of it is more important today more than ever before.

We as a company take the security of your data extremely seriously. Read on to learn why, and how our SOC 2 compliance ensures your data stays protected with enterprise-grade security standards.

SOC 2  Breakdown

SOC 2 was developed by the American Institute of CPAs (AICPA), and its reports define criteria for managing customer data based on 5 principles. The SOC 2 was created specifically for technology and cloud-computing organizations that want to assure their clients their information is secure.

SOC 2 reports are becoming increasingly more popular for SaaS and cloud service organizations, and are becoming a necessity to ensure data is being handled properly. A SOC 2 type2 certification is issued by outside auditors that assess the amount a company’s processes comply with the report’s 5 principles.

Importance of Data Security

With the number of sites we visit online and the number of actions we take without thinking twice, it should come as no surprise that our information is out there.

Let’s take Google for example. The behemoth data-mining search engine knows where you are and where you’ve been just by you conveniently using Google on your phone. They store your location every single time you turn on your phone to create a timeline of your movements. Scary? On top of that, Google saves your YouTube history, which tells them what you’re into and not into, knows the apps you use, is aware of everything you have searched for, and use all of this information to create a detailed advertisement profile on you. And we can’t mention Facebook, who has been in the news for their privacy policies and grilled by congress. The social network stores files and messages you’ve sent or received, contacts on your phone, and audio messages. They also collect location data, can access your webcam and microphone, view your browsing history and more.

Great Power, Great Responsibility

With so much data being stored online and across servers, it’s imperative that companies handle it like a weapon. Companies that mishandle their users’ data risk penalties and heavy fines, revenue loss, losing those users entirely due to lack of trust, and worst of all, risk going under.

It’s for these reasons that companies must implement security protocols and procedures. One of the most strict protocols is the SOC 2 compliance.
