With data breaches and privacy violations frequently making headlines, the importance of robust data security measures cannot be overstated. Deeping Source has been at the forefront of developing AI technologies that prioritize personal information protection. We have now achieved a significant milestone that reflects our unwavering commitment to these principles – attaining SOC2 Type 2 certification.

What is SOC2 Type 2 Certification?

Before diving deeper, let's understand the meaning of SOC2 Type 2 certification and why it is crucial for Deeping Source, a company whose core competency lies in data anonymization technology.

SOC2 (Service Organization Control 2) certification is a rigorous auditing framework established by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA). Its purpose is to validate whether service organizations effectively safeguard data to protect their organizations' and customers' privacy.

The Five Trust Service Principles

SOC2 certification centers around five "trust service principles": security, availability, processing integrity, confidentiality, and privacy.

Security: Systems are protected against unauthorized physical and logical access.

Availability: Systems are operational and usable as committed or agreed.

Processing Integrity: System processing is complete, valid, accurate, timely, and authorized.

Confidentiality: Confidential information is protected as committed or agreed.

Privacy: Personal information is collected, used, retained, disclosed, and disposed of in conformity with the organization's privacy notice

The Difference Between Type 1 and Type 2

It's important to understand the distinction between SOC2 Type 1 and Type 2:

Type 1 reports on the design suitability of a service organization's systems and controls at a specific point in time.

Type 2 builds upon the Type 1 report by additionally covering the operating effectiveness of those controls over a minimum of six months. Thus, Type 2 provides a more comprehensive and reliable assurance that the trust service principles have been adhered to over an extended period.

The Significance

For Deeping Source, achieving SOC2 Type 2 certification represents the fruition of our relentless efforts in data security and privacy. This certification assures our customers and partners that our anonymization technologies and development processes meet stringent data management and protection standards. It enables us to deliver on our mission of providing safe and trustworthy AI technology solutions.

The Journey to SOC2 Type 2 Certification

Attaining SOC2 Type 2 certification was a rigorous process that validated our adherence to data security and privacy principles. Our management systems related to security, availability, confidentiality, processing integrity, and privacy underwent extensive evaluation over an extended period. This aligns precisely with our corporate philosophy of prioritizing personal information protection in developing safe and trustworthy AI technologies. Beyond merely meeting industry standards, this achievement solidifies our commitment to data security and privacy while further strengthening the trust of our customers and partners.

Securing All Data Safely

SOC2 Type 2 certification marks an important step towards realizing our vision of "make all data safely available." By enhancing the credibility of our proprietary anonymization technologies, we enable innovation in domains where privacy concerns previously hindered AI adoption. Coupled with our efforts in data security and privacy assurance, enterprises can now confidently pursue sophisticated data-driven decision-making and optimization in a safe and trustworthy manner.

Our Vision for the Future

Moving forward, we plan to expand the application of our safe AI technologies across diverse fields, including security, safety, and industry. We will contemplate the societal impact of technology deeply and strive to grow based on the trust of all stakeholders. Ultimately, we aspire to foster a harmonious coexistence between technology and humanity, creating a better world. Achieving SOC2 Type 2 certification represents a significant stride in this endeavor.
