Simply Voting is now SOC 2 Type I certified.
Governed by the American Institute of CPAs (AICPA), SOC 2 was established in order to provide independent evaluation and confidence about an organization’s controls related to security, confidentiality, processing integrity, availability, and privacy. A Type 1 report provides a description of the organization’s system as a whole, in addition to detailed testing of the design of the organization’s internal controls, all at one specific point in time.
An independent auditing firm, A-LIGN, conducted interviews and examined 198 pieces of evidence relating to our company’s administration, our online voting system, and underlying server infrastructure. Their final report confirmed that Simply Voting meets the established SOC 2 Trust Services Principles regarding Common Criteria/Security, Availability, and Confidentiality.
The SOC 2 is a more extensive audit than the SSAE 16 which Simply Voting had completed in the past. We hope it instills confidence in the integrity of our internet voting solutions.
