More about SOC Certification

Service Organization and Controls (SOC) are assurance reports, which provide an industry-wide acknowledgement that a company adheres to trust service principles. These principles and controls are set by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA). SOC reports deliver valuable information for clients and partners enabling them to assess the quality of security provided by service providers such as Vivun. Areas reported on include:

Security: Information and systems are protected against unauthorized access, unauthorized disclosure of information and damage to systems that could compromise the availability, integrity, confidentiality and privacy of information or systems and affect the entity's ability to meet its objectives.

Availability: Information and systems are available for operation and use to meet the entity's objectives.

Processing Integrity: System processing is complete, valid, accurate, timely and authorized to meet the entity's objectives.

Confidentiality: Information designated as confidential is protected to meet the entity's objectives.

Privacy: Personal information is collected, used, retained, disclosed and disposed to meet the entity's objectives.

More About the ISO 27001 Standard
