What is SOC 2 Type II?

SOC was developed by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA), with SOC 2 Type II certification being the most rigorous of these auditing procedures. SOC 2 is a standard that is subject to an annual accreditation process and assures service providers securely manage non-financial data to protect organisations' interests and their users' privacy.

iProov’s officials stated that every department and process must contribute to their security culture, supported by training and controls. This certification assures their customers, partners, and their users that they are continuously monitoring and implementing robust controls over the company’s security, processing integrity, and privacy practices.
