What is a SOC Certification, and why is it essential for your agency? SOC stands for “system and organization controls.” The controls are a series of standards designed to measure how well a given service organization conducts and regulates its information. 

Ultimately, SOC standards are designed to provide confidence and peace of mind for Agencies when they engage third-party vendors and ensure that the firm has the appropriate safeguards and procedures in place. As you know, CIPO was built by Owners for Owners, and we understand protecting your essential data better than anyone else on the market.

You may be thinking, “how does this help my organization, and where does CIPO Cloud get involved?” Your organization’s IT or IS department knows all about the different certifications available through SOC (Type 1 and Type 2) and how important it is to have a system like CIPO connect to and share data with your Agencies existing backbone. These departments within your organization will need to ensure that your data is safe. Thus most firms will push to align themselves with a service provider like CIPO, who is SOC 2 Type 2 certified. SOC 2 is an extensive examination that involves an external auditor to report on our internal controls relevant to security, availability, processing integrity, confidentiality, or privacy processes. It follows SSAE 18 (Clarified Attestation Standards).

By achieving this certification, CIPO has proven its system is designed to keep its clients’ sensitive data secure and available. When your organization is ready to work in a cloud environment, such performances and reliability are essential to protect your data. Through an exhaustive search, most of our competitors do not offer this enhanced security and peace of mind. So why risk your critical data?

A company like CIPO that has achieved SOC 2 Type 2 Certification has proven its system is designed to keep its clients’ sensitive data secure.
