Journey’s Commitment to Global Security Standards and Adherence to Industry Best Practices in Implementing Data Privacy Controls Builds Stronger Trust and More Secure Interactions Between Businesses and Their Customers.
Journey, an award-winning provider of cloud-based identity verification, authentication and secure transaction solutions, has successfully undergone an audit process and earned its System and Organization Controls (SOC) 2 Type 1 Attestation.
The audit was conducted by Control Logics in accordance with the requirements of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants. SOC 2 Type 1 is considered the gold standard for data security and provides companies with assurance that Journey complies with stringent industry security standards.
The auditing process included an in-depth review of company policies and procedures for data handling, tests of the organization’s security controls, employee interviews, a walkthrough of the office and a guided overview of the data center spaces. This kind of audit ensures that service providers securely manage data to protect the interests of the organization and the privacy of clients. For security-conscious businesses, SOC 2 Type 1 compliance is a necessary requirement both internally and externally.
