We are pleased to announce that InfoSec Global has received our SOC 2 Type 1 letter of certification from the Association of International Certified Professional Accountants (AICPA). This is one of the two most rigorous compliance certifications for technology companies. It culminates months of hard work by our team in documenting all the internal processes and security measures we undertake to ensure that our code, product, and operations meet the highest standards of data compliance and security. Per the AICPA letter, “You have proven a commitment to best-in-class security controls in order to comply with the AICPA’s Trust Services Criteria.”
Why SOC 2 Matters for Security and Trust
SOC 2 compliance is a set of standards designed to ensure that a company has the necessary controls and processes to safeguard the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of data and systems. For example, SOC 2 covers all ways we use to store, process, and transmit clients' information and data.
For our clients, in particular in regulated industries, SOC 2 is an important indication that shows we are worthy of our customers’ trust. Many companies now make SOC 2 compliance a mandatory part of their vendor requirements, as they should. Trusting a cybersecurity provider means trusting an external party to provide the most critical services to keep a modern business functioning and protected.
That said, SOC 2 is not a simple standard to meet. It requires interaction with almost every employee and assessment of every system and process. SOC 2 also serves the indirect but important purpose of assigning responsibility for all processes, code and infrastructure. Going through SOC 2 forces companies to uplevel their risk assessment and evaluation. This tends to lead to more efficient, more secure processes and ultimately better products.
As the AICPA says, SOC is not a destination, but rather a journey. It requires annual renewal and constant vigilance. As ISG continues to grow and evolve, we pledge to continue to hold ourselves to this high standard of security and compliance. For any customers curious about the SOC 2 process, we are happy to answer your questions and explain what it entails. And thanks for trusting us with your cryptographic security. We take this responsibility very seriously.
