SpoonRead has successfully completed its Type 1 Service Organization Control (SOC) 2 Compliance audit. Based on reporting principles developed by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA), Type 1 SOC 2 Compliance provides a framework for organizations to document, obtain independent validation of and publish their information security policies and procedures.
In order to pass the Type 1 SOC 2 audit, SpoonRead upgraded its infrastructure and data control policies to ensure that they adhere to AICPA’s SOC 2 guidelines for security, system availability, processing integrity, as well as data confidentiality and privacy. The audit required a written description of SpoonRead’s security procedures, including protocols for storing, encrypting, sharing and protecting sensitive data. SpoonRead also needed to commit to a regular security check on its infrastructure, have recovery plans in place in the event of a server crash, and verify that all systems are protected from unauthorized access.
