The SOC 2 Type II report demonstrates that Civis' security and confidentiality controls and activities have been reviewed by an independent third party in accordance with the stringent standards established by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) and that those controls were tested over time to ensure that they are operating effectively. The independent audit and testing was completed by Plante Moran, PLLC, a public accounting and consulting firm.
"Security is the primary reason organizations are hesitant to adopt cloud-based data science solutions," said Rich Lee, General Counsel at Civis Analytics. "Having third party validation of our security practices is a major step in our never-ending effort to protect our clients' information and build on the trust they've placed in us. SOC 2 Type II certification helps assure our clients that their data is secured so that they can fully leverage the power of the Civis Platform to perform complex data science and make smarter, more effective, data-driven decisions."
