We are excited to announce that Touchwork has achieved SOC 2 Type II compliance, marking a significant step forward in our commitment to maintaining the highest standards of data security for our clients and partners. In collaboration with Vanta & Advantage Partners, our successful journey through the compliance process underscores our unwavering dedication to providing a secure data environment.

What is SOC 2 Type II and why is it important?

Service Organization Control 2 (SOC 2) is a framework developed by the American Institute of CPAs (AICPA) to ensure that organizations securely manage and protect customer data. This framework focuses on five trust service criteria: security, availability, processing integrity, confidentiality, and privacy.  With increasing cybersecurity threats and data breaches, it is paramount that organizations prioritize information security and the protection of their systems and data.

By achieving SOC 2 compliance, Touchwork demonstrates its adherence to rigorous standards for data security and privacy. Going beyond SOC 2, the Type II designation adds a time element, assessing the effectiveness of these controls over an extended period.

Security at the core

Our successful attainment of SOC 2 Type II compliance is a testament to the robustness of our information security policies and procedures. Our clients can trust that their data is handled with the utmost care, meeting and exceeding industry standards.

Enhanced data privacy

SOC 2 Type II compliance places a strong emphasis on data privacy and confidentiality. Touchwork’s commitment to safeguarding client data against unauthorized access, both physical and digital, is now officially recognized through SOC 2 Type II compliance. 

Reliability and availability

In the digital landscape, ensuring service availability and reliability is crucial. SOC 2 Type II compliance solidifies our dedication to reliability, assuring clients that their operations can run smoothly without compromises.

What it means for our clients

Touchwork’s SOC 2 compliance directly benefits our clients by ensuring their data is handled with the highest security and integrity, confirming our commitment to maintaining confidentiality, availability, and privacy over an extended period of time. 

Looking ahead

While achieving SOC 2 Type II compliance is a significant milestone, Touchwork is committed to continuous improvement. We will enhance our security measures, stay informed about industry best practices, and adapt to evolving threats, ensuring our commitment to unparalleled service.

Conclusion

Attaining SOC 2 Type II compliance is a mark of distinction in data security, and Touchwork is proud to have reached this milestone. We extend gratitude to our clients, partners, and the entire Touchwork team. As we move forward, our focus remains on delivering unparalleled security and reliability, providing stakeholders with confidence in our commitment to safeguarding their sensitive information.
