To add to its growing list of achievements, KanTime recently earned SOC 2 Type II certification for its secure software solutions. But what exactly is SOC 2 certification and what does this mean for KanTime users?
Dive into this blog to discover the significance of SOC 2, how KanTime obtained this prestigious certification, and why it reinforces our commitment to delivering secure and reliable solutions for the post-acute care industry.
What is SOC 2 Certification?
Developed by the American Institute of CPAs (AICPA), SOC 2 certification has become the gold standard for software organizations handling sensitive client information. SOC 2, or Service Organization Control 2, is a rigorous framework designed to ensure the security, availability, processing integrity, confidentiality, and privacy of data. These standards combine to establish what is known as the SOC 2 Trust Service Criteria.
SOC 2 was designed to provide auditors with guidance for assessing the overall effectiveness of an organization’s security protocols. SOC 2 reports are generated after a SOC 2 audit and can help build trust among customers looking for organizations with the most secure data management qualifications.
KanTime’s Dedication to Data Security: Understanding SOC 2 Certification
Becoming SOC 2 certified was a comprehensive process that required KanTime to demonstrate a high level of commitment to data security and operational integrity. It started with a thorough understanding of the SOC 2 criteria and the applicable Trust Service Principles. KanTime then conducted a meticulous internal review, starting with a pre-assessment or gap analysis, to identify areas where their practices diverged from SOC 2 standards. Next KanTime implemented rigorous changes to align its policies, procedures, and systems with these standards. These changes included enhancing security protocols, refining data handling processes, and updating documentation. Once these changes were in place, KanTime underwent a detailed audit conducted by a qualified independent auditor.
The recent SOC 2 certification of KanTime’s software signifies its unwavering commitment to ensuring the highest level of security in the digital healthcare solutions space. This esteemed certification validates that KanTime has implemented stringent controls and safeguards to protect the confidentiality and integrity of client data.
