We know that security is a top priority for many of our customers, and we want to assure you that we've taken every step possible to safeguard your data. And now we’ve been audited to prove that. From day one, we've made it our mission to implement robust security controls and processes to protect your data, and we’ve recently improved our security program through Systems and Organization Controls (SOC). While we have already undergone SOC2 Type I, we have now completed SOC2 Type II.
Here’s everything you need to know about the update.
What is SOC2 and why is it important?
SOC is the framework put in place by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) that enables independent audits of a company to help reduce information and data related risk. There are three types of SOC, but SOC2 has become the standard that many companies acquire for their internal security requirements.
In a SOC2 audit, you would provide the policies, procedures, and systems that your company has in place to protect data and information across five different categories— security, availability, processing integrity, confidentiality, and privacy— known as “Trust Services Criteria”.
In order to achieve an official SOC2 report, the audit process encompasses everything we do at Beautiful.ai from how we build our product, how our employees do their day-to-day jobs, and the encryption of customer information, to our board meetings, budgeting, and revenue. We’ve enabled software to ensure that each server is monitored and accessible to help minimize incidents and risk, and avoid nefarious actors.
As a growing business, putting these policies in place helps us ensure cybersecurity internally, as well as for any client data or information we have on file.
What it means for our customers
For Beautiful.ai customers, it means that we've implemented comprehensive and effective security controls that meet the rigorous standards set by SOC2 Type 2. It means that we've demonstrated our commitment to data protection and that you can trust us with your sensitive information. It also means that we're continuously looking for ways to improve our security practices and keep your data safe. With the official SOC2 report, it means that we’re taking any and all measures necessary to ensure that your data, information, and confidentiality are protected when you use our product.
Sending an email to our team? No problem. Updating your payment method? It’s secure. Adding proprietary information to your presentation? Don’t worry.
