We’re thrilled to announce that we have successfully completed the System and Organizational Controls (SOC) 2 Type 1 examination, making Weglot officially SOC 2 Type 1 compliant.
Data privacy has always been essential to us here at Weglot and how we handle customer data has consistently been with a privacy-first approach. That’s why this achievement further supports our commitment to your security.
What is SOC 2?
SOC 2 compliance is a voluntary industry standard that specifies how organizations should manage customer data. Developed by the American Institute of CPAs, the standard is based on the following criteria: security, availability, processing integrity, confidentiality, and privacy.
Why is SOC 2 important?
As a widely recognized standard, a SOC 2 report provides new and current users of Weglot with assurance about how we handle data and process customer information. Overall, SOC 2 compliance indicates that as an organization we maintain a high level of information security.
To comply with SOC 2 a number of on-site audits are conducted by independent CPAs (Certified Public Accountants) to ensure sensitive information is being handled responsibly.
Augustin Prot, CEO at Weglot said, “Being certified is a public recognition of the invisible work we’re doing to make sure the data of our customers is secured, for all our users. This certification adds to our continued steps to assure our customers that their data is being handled with care.”
