Mar 12, 2024 | News

Celebrating a Milestone

We’re excited to share a significant achievement in our commitment to privacy and security: the attainment of SOC 2® Type 2 report and third-party audit certification. This underscores our dedication to safeguarding user data and maintaining the highest standards of security across our platforms.


What is SOC 2? Understanding the Certification

SOC 2 (System and Organisation Controls 2) is a widely recognised auditing standard developed by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA). It focuses on a service organisation’s controls related to security, availability, processing integrity, confidentiality, and privacy of customer data. SOC 2 compliance demonstrates that an organisation has implemented effective controls to protect user data and maintain the integrity of its systems and processes.


Why SOC 2 Matters to Connect Earth

Achieving SOC 2 certification is a significant milestone for Connect Earth, reinforcing our commitment to data security and privacy. Nick, our Co-Founder and CTO, emphasises the importance of this achievement:

“I’m incredibly proud to announce our attainment of SOC 2 certification, a testament to our team’s unwavering dedication to privacy and security. This achievement underscores our collective commitment to safeguarding our users’ data and reflects a pivotal milestone in our journey. Through tireless collaboration and a shared vision, we’ve navigated the rigorous SOC 2 process, solidifying our position as a trusted provider of secure solutions. This certification not only validates our efforts but also reinforces our company’s core values and mission. As we continue to innovate and evolve, our pledge to prioritise privacy and security remains steadfast.”

Team Effort: Collaborating Towards Success

Their expertise, dedication, and teamwork have played a crucial role in our success and will continue to be vital as we uphold our commitment to privacy and security. We extend our heartfelt thanks to the entire team for their hard work and dedication in achieving this milestone.
