Sigstr’s Commitment to Security: SOC 2 Type 1 Certification
Written by Brad Beutler
Sigstr continues to be extremely committed to keeping its customers’ data and accounts very secure. With that said, we are extremely excited to announce that Sigstr recently attained SOC 2 Type 1 certification.
SOC 2 is an independent audit of internal controls and policies in place that keep Sigstr secure. SOC stands for Service & Organization Controls and is overseen by the AICPA. These audits measure organizations based on the AICPA’s Trust Criteria and include:
- Processing Integrity
SaaS companies can choose which Trust Criteria to be audited against and Sigstr was audited for all 5. SOC 2 audits include an extensive review of internal policies that pertain to information security, software development, logical access, monitoring controls, human resources, and more.
