At Desk365, we understand the importance of safeguarding your data and providing a seamless user experience. We are thrilled to announce that Desk365 has achieved SOC2 Type 1 compliance, reaffirming our commitment to the highest standards of security and trustworthiness.
What is SOC2 Type 1 Compliance?
Before delving into the significance of this achievement, let’s clarify what SOC2 Type 1 compliance entails. SOC2, which stands for System and Organization Controls 2, is a widely recognized auditing standard developed by the American Institute of CPAs (AICPA). It focuses on the security, availability, processing integrity, confidentiality, and privacy of customer data. Type 1 compliance is the first step towards SOC2 certification and involves an assessment of an organization’s policies, procedures, and controls to ensure they meet the specified criteria.
Why SOC2 Type 1 matters?
Achieving SOC2 Type 1 compliance is a testament to our commitment to data security and the protection of your valuable information. Here’s why this milestone matters:
