This achievement demonstrates Belong For Me’s commitment to delivering the highest level of compliance and security in all aspects of its business operations. While SOC 2 compliance is voluntary, Belong For Me places high importance on the corporation’s most precious asset: its customers’ data. By completing this compliance assessment, the effectiveness of Belong For Me’s internal controls in accordance with the Trust Services Criteria has been verified.
“Working towards being SOC 2 compliant did not just help us create or improve our policies; it also helped make our systems better and our company stronger,” explained Emily Stewart, Belong For Me President & Founder. “It created a purpose where everyone participated in working to achieve this goal and built a compliance culture among all employees where everyone embraced the ownership.”
According to an Adastra study, 77% of IT decision-makers in the United States and Canada believe their companies will experience a data breach within the next three years. With data breaches a top concern in the minds of industry leaders, Belong For Me proactively sought SOC 2 Type 1 attestation as part of a critical step in protecting its customers’ information.
“A strong security compliance program is essential to a company’s ability to scale safely. Knowing that, Belong For Me is happy to partner with Thoropass to gain access to their complete compliance solution including smart software, expert guidance, continuous monitoring, and a full audit” said Brad Patton, VP of Engineering.
Belong For Me’s SOC 2 Type 1 attestation ensures that customers, partners, and associates can have complete confidence in the company’s commitment to protecting their sensitive information and maintaining the highest level of security and compliance. Belong For Me will continue to invest in security and compliance to protect all external stakeholders and to ensure they have the best possible experience.
