We’re pleased to announce that Pagely has recently become SOC 2 Type 2 compliant – an achievement that underlines our commitment to implementing rigorous security measures and ensuring seamless system availability and confidentiality.
For the uninitiated, SOC 2 – System and Organization Controls – is a universally recognized auditing standard by the American Institute of CPAs (AICPA). Its purpose is to ensure service providers handle your data responsibly, ensuring your protection and the privacy of the clients you serve.
Following the SOC 2 standards developed by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA), Pagely has implemented stringent security policies and procedures. These policies encompass the security, availability, and confidentiality Trust Services Criteria.
Our SOC 2 Type 2 audit not only verifies the existence of these controls but tests their operational effectiveness over a specified period. This involves assessing whether controls are not only in place but also consistently functioning efficiently and effectively.
Pagely’s Approach to SOC 2 Type 2 Compliance
At Pagely, we’ve always anchored our operations to rigorous security measures. In our pursuit for SOC 2 Type 2 compliance, we engaged Sensiba LLP (Sensiba) to assess multiple facets of our operation, going beyond a traditional system’s performance and security check.
One critical aspect of this process is effectively managing and monitoring access to our internal systems. Our longstanding approach includes effective access management to our systems to reduce the risk of a data breach. Additionally, we maintain an ongoing cycle of monitoring, assessment, and control modifications. Part of our security strategy involves automated real-time evidence gathering that runs continually in the background, providing us with invaluable data for prompt vulnerability detection and rectification.
Our compliance with SOC 2 isn’t about checking off these boxes on a list. It’s about adapting and incorporating a systematic approach to data security that evolves with the ever-changing cyber threat landscape. It’s about having a structured process in place for on-time security patching, applying updates, and proactively minimizing potential risks.
We have a structured protocol for disciplined software development, stringent code reviews, and deployment. Each piece of code written is put through rigorous rounds of testing and verification processes before moving towards deployment, ensuring the integrity of our systems remains uncompromised.
Disaster recovery preparedness and end-to-end incident management are crucial parts of our operations. We have increased our resilience against emergencies by ensuring regular and timely data backups, as well as constructing explicit end to end incident handling processes.
Pagely is committed to continuously improve our security posture, and a part of this involves regular ongoing third-party security audits. This consistent approach enhances our defenses by identifying and mitigating possible vulnerabilities.
