Three New ISO Certifications for Privacy and Security Controls
NEW YORK, May 9, 2018 -- Socure, a leading provider of predictive analytics for digital identity verification, today announced it has achieved compliance certification for three ISO/IEC 27000 standards pertaining to the privacy, confidentiality, and security controls of its ID+ system and service. These internationally recognized standards help organizations keep information assets — including personally identifiable information (PII) about consumers — secure, private, and confidential within a cloud-based environment.
The certification was issued by A-lign, an independent and accredited certification body, following the successful completion of a formal audit that verified Socure’s process and controls meet the requirements of ISO 27001, 27017 and 27018. Socure also completed its annual re-attestation of its SOC 2 type 2 report with an expanded scope that now includes privacy and security controls. A-lign tested the operational effectiveness of controls, and certified that Socure satisfies rigorous international standards in ensuring the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of customer data.
“Data privacy, security, and integrity are essential for our customers, but also for consumers,” said Tom Thimot, CEO of Socure. “In an industry that relies on trust, the latest ISO certifications and SOC 2 type 2 report provides our prospects, customers, and their customers the confidence of knowing that Socure adheres to international Trust Services Principles standards for security and confidentiality.”
Socure has developed a patented, predictive analytics platform called ID+ that verifies whether digital identities are authentic, synthetic, or stolen. The company’s deep learning technology establishes an unprecedented level of trust and certainty for financial transactions. The ID+ platform applies advanced data science techniques to hundreds of sources of consented online, social, mobile, and offline data to validate the authenticity of digital identities in real-time.
