We are thrilled to announce that PurelyHR is now SOC 2 Type 1 compliant. This achievement is a testament to our commitment to providing secure and reliable HR management software to our clients.
What is a SOC 2 Type I report?
SOC 2 (Service Organization Control 2) is an auditing standard developed by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA), and is widely recognized as the gold standard for security compliance for software-as-a service (SaaS) companies.
The SOC 2 Type 1 audit requires rigorous assessments and testing to validate the organization’s ability to protect the confidentiality, privacy, integrity, and availability of its clients’ data. Achieving SOC 2 Type 1 compliance confirmed that we have implemented the necessary controls and procedures to ensure that our systems are secure and our clients’ data is protected.
Why is SOC 2 compliance important?
As an HR management solution, our clients trust us with sensitive information. We understand the importance of security, and want our customers to rest assured knowing their data is protected. We are proud to achieve SOC 2 Type 1 compliance, as it demonstrates our dedication to clients’ data security, confidentiality and privacy. We want to thank our clients for their continued trust and support in PurelyHR.
Next steps for compliance at PurelyHR
As data security is an ongoing commitment, we will continue to invest in resources to maintain our compliance and provide the best possible service to our clients.
We’re continuing to work towards our next milestone of achieving SOC 2 Type 2 compliance. The Type 2 certification requires periodic audits to assess the effectiveness of our security controls over time, to ensure we consistently meet the Trust Services Criteria.
