Gigantik Is Now SOC 2® Compliant

At Gigantik, our commitment to security and compliance has been at the forefront of everything we build since day 1. We understand the vital role they play in enhancing internal operations, safeguarding against costly security breaches, fostering customer confidence, and fueling business expansion. This is why SOC 2 compliance is important for us, particularly given our presence in the ever evolving blockchain and web3 industry. By adhering to SOC 2 standards, we not only instill trust, but also guarantee legal and regulatory adherence, fulfill customer expectations, mitigate risks, and refine our internal workflows.

That’s why we recently completed our System and Organization Controls (SOC) 2 Type 1 examination.

What is SOC 2 compliance?

SOC 2 is a security framework that outlines standards for safeguarding customer data. To achieve SOC 2 compliance, organizations must pass a third-party audit. 

The SOC 2 audit is one the highest recognized standards of information security compliance in the world. It was developed by the American Institute of CPAs (AICPA) to allow a third-party auditor to validate a service company’s internal controls with respect to information security.

Our SOC 2 attestation report is the auditor’s opinion on the suitability of the design of our organization’s security controls relevant to security, confidentiality, availability, and privacy. 

Why is SOC 2 compliance important?

In today’s age of growing cyber threats, earning and keeping customer trust is essential. 

Our prospects, customers, and business partners want proof that our organization has sufficient data protection controls in place to protect their sensitive data. SOC 2 compliance can offer that assurance.

SOC 2 requirements help our company establish airtight internal security controls. This lays a foundation of security policies and processes that can help us scale securely.

How we achieved SOC 2 compliance

We obtained our SOC 2 report by partnering with Secureframe and Zeroday, who respectively helped us prepare for and review our internal controls including policies, procedures, and infrastructure regarding data security, firewall configurations, change management, logical access, backup management, business continuity and disaster recovery, security incident response, and other critical areas of our business.
