Stensul completes SOC 2 examination, continuing its commitment to data security best practices
Developed by the American Institute of CPAs (AICPA), SOC 2 Compliance reports ensure organizations adhere to comprehensive internal controls, focused around data security and privacy.
Stensul is proud to announce it is SOC 2 compliant. Because data security and proper internal controls have always been a top priority at stensul, completing this SOC 2 Type II audit is a major accomplishment for our organization. Developed by the American Institute of CPAs (AICPA), SOC 2 compliance audits are conducted to test the design and operating effectiveness of a company’s security controls across relevant key areas and ensure the safe handling of customer data.
"Strong organization controls are top of mind for all of us at stensul. In this day and age, large enterprises care more than ever that their vendor partners are secure, well-run, and risk-averse when it comes to protecting customer data," says stensul CEO Noah Dinkin.
The SOC 2 (Service and Organizational Controls) exams are part of the AICPA's Service Organization Control reporting platform and are conducted by a third-party auditor. To become SOC 2 compliant, stensul underwent an audit to prove our practices and policies meet stringent requirements.
As explained on the AICPA's website, SOC 2 reports -- which are part of the auditing process -- are designed to offer, "Detailed information and assurance about the controls at a service organization relevant to security, availability, and processing integrity of the systems the service organization users to process users' data and the confidentiality and privacy of the information processed by these systems."
What does this mean for our partners and clients? By completing the SOC 2 Type II examination, stensul has taken necessary actions to reduce risk when it comes to data security and data availability by safeguarding the systems we use to process data within our cloud-based infrastructure. The SOC Type II examinations are not a one-time deal -- instead of passing a single audit, stensul has committed to long-term internal data security processes.
On the surface, it may just look like another compliance logo, but AICPA's SOC 2 examinations reaffirm the lengths stensul has gone to provide oversight for our cloud-based data security systems and controls at an organization level.
Our number one goal is to give enterprise organizations an agile email creation platform that streamlines their email marketing efforts -- stensul knows we can only do this when we make privacy, security and compliance a top priority. Our SOC 2 Type II report underscores our commitment to data security best practices.
