System and Organization Controls (SOC 2) is a certification that verifies a company's adherence to strict security and data protection standards. These standards are established by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA), and they ensure that companies handling sensitive information, such as financial data or personal information, have robust and reliable systems in place to protect that data. Achieving SOC 2 certification involves a rigorous review of a company's policies, procedures, and technical controls by a third-party auditor. This includes a detailed evaluation of the company's security measures, disaster recovery plans, and data access controls.
SOC 2 is a set of industry-recognized standards that provide guidance on how to securely operate a cloud-based service. The SOC 2 framework is designed to help organizations like Protecto ensure that they have the necessary controls in place to protect customer data. In addition to validating strong processes to protect against data breaches and security incidents, SOC 2 is required by many enterprises to evaluate vendors like Protecto.
To achieve SOC 2 certification, Protecto had to undergo a thorough audit of its systems and processes by an independent, third-party auditor. This included reviewing policies and procedures and testing the effectiveness of the controls in place. The audit also looked at how Protecto handles customer data and ensures that it is protected from unauthorized access, misuse, and disclosure.
In today's digital age, data security and privacy are top of mind for many individuals and businesses.
