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.
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:
