We’re proud to announce that Omnipresent has become SOC 2 Type 1 compliant. Due to the nature of our business, we handle a lot of sensitive data, so it’s critical we keep it safe to protect our clients and their team members. That’s why we’ve undergone a third-party SOC 2 audit to ensure our systems, procedures, and policies meet stringent security standards.
Becoming SOC 2 compliant gives you the confidence that we’re handling your data securely. But what does it actually entail?
What Is SOC 2?
SOC 2 stands for Systems and Organizations Controls 2. It’s a voluntary compliance standard and certification process for technology companies, like Omnipresent, that store customer data in the cloud. SOC 2 is developed by theAmerican Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA)and holds companies to high standards of data security procedures and policies.
The audit focuses on some or all of the five “trust service principles”: security, availability, processing integrity, confidentiality, and privacy.
Omnipresent’s SOC 2 report focused on the following:
Security:User data is protected from unauthorized disclosure and unauthorized access.
Accuracy of the information:User entity data secures the accuracy and integrity of information and is shielded from unauthorized alterations.
Regulatory compliance:Omnipresent has followed all relevant system policies, standards, and regulatory requirements.
There are two types of SOC 2 audits: Type 1 and Type 2. Type 1 focuses on infrastructure, software, people, processes, data, and controls at a specific time, while Type 2 evaluates and validates the application of controls over a period of time (usually six months). Type 1 is the first step to becoming compliant, and Type 2 measures your effectiveness moving forward.
As such, Omnipresent has just undergone a Type 1 audit, and we’re working towards our next milestone of achieving SOC 2 Type 2 compliance.
