We are thrilled to share some excellent news today: Spruce has completed a System and Organization Controls (SOC) 2 Type I audit examination of our Care Messenger platform. 🎉
SOC 2 audits, performed by independent auditors, evaluate whether the safeguards and controls employed by organizations like Spruce are adequate to ensure the protection and security of their clients’ data. For our audit, Spruce retained international business advisory firm Skoda Minotti, based on their reputation as a leading risk advisory and compliance firm, and we have been working diligently with their auditors over the past year to fully describe and document our systems and processes, as they relate to the “trust service principles” that SOC audits investigate.
Skoda Minotti’s testing of Spruce’s controls included examinations of our policies and procedures regarding network connectivity, firewall configurations, systems development life cycle, computer operations, logical access, data transmission, backup and disaster recovery, and other critical operational areas.
Upon completion of the audit, Spruce received a Service Auditor’s Report with an unqualified opinion, which signifies that the independent auditors found our policies, procedures, and infrastructure to meet or exceed the stringent SOC 2 criteria against which they were being assessed.
We’re very proud of this outcome, and we’re elated to be able to share this news with our customers. Securing and protecting your data has always been a top priority for us at Spruce, and we are now able to share third-party-validated assurance of this commitment with our SOC 2 audit result.
