Yes, Verified First is SOC 2 Compliant

Background checks help employers provide information to make better hiring decisions, but they also contain personally identifiable information (PII) that must be secured in order to protect the applicant’s privacy. With cybercrime on the rise, knowing how your data is being defended has never been more critical. 

As a SOC 2-compliant organization, Verified First is committed to protecting our clients and their data. If your organization uses a service provider that manages your data, then you are probably already aware of SOC reporting — or we hope you are! To showcase our commitment to data security, let’s discuss what SOC 2 compliance means and how we are constantly working to protect our clients. 

What is SOC 2 Compliance? 

SOC, or System and Organization Controls, helps business leaders evaluate data protection systems and procedures. A SOC 2 report shows that a service provider has adequate systems and controls in place to protect sensitive information. 

The American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) developed the SOC 2 report to define and examine these trust services criteria in companies that manage sensitive data: 

  • Security: Information and systems are properly protected against unauthorized access or disclosure, abuse, and damage. 
  • Availability: Systems and services are accessible to clients so they can best perform their business objectives.  
  • Processing Integrity: System processing is complete, valid, accurate, timely, and authorized. 
  • Confidentiality: Confidential information is secured, and access is controlled. 
  • Privacy: PII is appropriately collected, used, retained, disclosed, and disposed of. 

SOC 2 compliance lets organizations demonstrate their commitment to security. As a SOC 2-compliant organization, Verified First can help you confidently protect and manage your business information.
