Achieving Data Security Excellence: Our SOC 2 Compliance
In the dynamic landscape of healthcare technology, where the protection of data privacy and security holds utmost importance, we are excited to announce a pivotal achievement that reinforces our dedication to safeguarding your sensitive information. Today, we take great pride in sharing that Lime Health has successfully obtained SOC 2 Type II compliance, demonstrating our commitment to ensuring data security and confidentiality.
What is SOC 2 Type II compliance?
SOC 2 Type II compliance is the result of a rigorous process we have followed to ensure that your data is handled with the utmost care and security. SOC 2, or Service Organization Control 2, is an auditing standard developed by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA). It focuses on five critical trust service principles: security, availability, processing integrity, confidentiality, and privacy. Achieving SOC 2 Type II compliance means not only have we implemented robust security measures, but we have also consistently upheld these standards over time.
Why SOC 2 compliance matters
In the healthcare technology sector, where we deal with sensitive patient data and play a crucial role in improving healthcare outcomes, data security is paramount. Here's why it's so important:
Our compliance reassures patients that their data is in safe hands, strengthening trust in our platform and services.
Legal and Regulatory Compliance
We are committed to complying with industry regulations like the Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (PIPEDA) and other data protection laws. SOC 2 compliance is a significant step towards meeting these obligations.
By identifying potential security risks and implementing controls to mitigate them, we are better prepared to protect against data breaches and cyber threats.
Achieving and maintaining SOC 2 Type II compliance is an ongoing process. It means we continuously assess and improve our security measures to adapt to evolving threats.
