Apsona is now SOC 2 compliant

As companies store, process, and transmit sensitive information, the need for robust controls and safeguards around data becomes paramount. Apsona has always been very cognizant of data privacy and security. Our apps are architected to minimize or eliminate data storage, and we work to be transparent of any data that needs to be accessed, as discussed on our Security page.

However, in November 2022, our management team saw how critical it was to have certification of these processes for our customers. We wanted to ensure that we were compliant with the strictest regulations, and therefore put together a team to pursue SOC 2 certification. SOC 2, short for Service Organization Control 2, is a recognized standard designed to assess and assure the security, availability, processing integrity, confidentiality, and privacy of customer data within service organizations.

As our team worked with independent auditors who carefully examined our internal procedures, we were glad to see that we already followed many processes that made us easily SOC 2 compliant. This hugely validated our internal practices and our technical architecture, and we were able to complete our entire SOC2 certification process in less than four months!

What is SOC 2 Certification?

Developed by the American Institute of CPAs (AICPA), SOC 2 is an auditing procedure that evaluates a service organization's controls regarding data protection and operational practices. SOC 2 compliance is particularly relevant for businesses that provide cloud-based services, Software as a Service (SaaS), data centers, managed service providers, and other technology-related service offerings.

The SOC 2 audit assesses the company's information systems, policies, procedures, and activities against predefined criteria. These criteria are based on five Trust Services Criteria (TSC), which include:

  1. Security: The system is protected against unauthorized access, both physical and logical.

  2. Availability: The system is available for operation and use as agreed upon.

  3. Processing Integrity: System processing is complete, accurate, timely, and authorized.

  4. Confidentiality: Information designated as confidential is protected as agreed upon.

  5. Privacy: Personal information is collected, used, retained, disclosed, and disposed of appropriately.
