The System and Organization Controls, or SOC, standards were developed by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) to provide businesses with added assurance regarding their platforms’ and vendors’ security standards and integrity around maintaining data privacy.
Achieving Type 1 certification is part of Deepcrawl’s long-term strategy to demonstrate its data security and privacy credentials. The company will seek further SOC 2 Type 2 certification in 2022 to evidence the ongoing effectiveness and sustainability of its data security and privacy protection controls.
