CHICAGO – Oct. 28, 2022 – Hallow is proud to announce it has successfully completed the System and Organization Controls (SOC) 2 Type II audit in recognition of its commitment to information security.
SOC 2 certification is a report on an organization’s internal controls and how it protects customer data and sensitive information. It is the standard for data security among digital companies in the U.S.
An independent auditor, Insight Assurance, conducted the detailed examination via Vanta. Through this process, Hallow demonstrated its adherence to data security, availability and confidentiality standards developed by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA).
With its SOC 2 recognition, Hallow not only protects the safety of its customers’ data today but demonstrates that it has set the right standards in place for the future.
To earn SOC 2 certification, Hallow completed the following over a 3-month period:
- Thorough examination of security of vendors and third parties
- Risk assessment of systems
- Tests of system controls
- Defined policies to ensure continued protection for customers and employees
- In-depth security training program for the entire organization
With SOC 2 Type II certification, Hallow joins the likes of Google, Amazon Web Services and other leading technology companies in applying the most rigorous security measures to protect customer data. In February 2022, Hallow earned the iKeepSafe COPPA badge, which recognizes organizations compliant with federal laws that protect the privacy of student education records.
Hallow is excited to be taking this important step to further its data protection practices.
