Luna Connect Is Now SOC 2 Type II Certified And More Secure Than Ever

At Luna Connect, data privacy and security are vital. Each individual and the team as a whole work continuously to make sure the platform is safe and secure for our customers. Our commitment to providing a secure, safe experience is one of the reasons why Luna Connect has attained SOC 2 Type II Compliance. With our SOC 2 certification, we have proven to our customers their data is safe with us.

What Is SOC 2?

SOC 2 audits are used to ensure that the data managed by service providers is managed securely to protect the interests of organisations and the privacy of their customers. When evaluating SaaS (Software as a Service) providers, security-conscious businesses will always value SOC 2 compliance. The American Institute of CPAs (AICPA) developed SOC 2 and defined standards for managing customer data based on five fundamental trust service principles, namely privacy, security, processing integrity, availability and confidentiality.

According to specified business practices, each organisation designs its controls for complying with one or more of the trust principles. This report provides you (as well as regulators, business partners, suppliers and such) with important insights into your service provider’s data management processes. 

There are two types of SOC reports:

  • Type I refers to the vendor’s systems and whether or not their design complies with relevant trust principles.
  • Type II describes the systems’ operational effectiveness.

How Is SOC 2 Certification Issued?

Outside auditors issue SOC 2 certifications by assessing whether a vendor adheres to one or more of the five trust principles based on the systems and processes in place.

Organisations that are SOC 2 compliant maintain a high level of security. Strict compliance requirements (conducted through on-site audits) ensure that sensitive data is handled responsibly. Keeping up with SOC 2 guidelines can help organisations protect themselves from cyber-attacks. SOC 2 compliance also provides a competitive advantage because customers tend to favour service providers with strong security practices, especially in IT and cloud services.
