Today I am thrilled to announce that TUNE is now recognized as SOC 2 (Service Organization Control) accredited and has been issued a SOC 2 Type II report and representation letter. It is a major milestone for the company. This successful, independent third-party audit of how we conduct business and operate our privacy, security, and reporting controls is evidence of our continued growth as a trustworthy, sophisticated enterprise.
Having been in the information security business for over twenty years, first as a career hacker and now as a security team lead and program builder, I have come to appreciate just how vital — and challenging — it is to build a relevant, effective information security and governance program.
Vital, because the ability to secure company and customer information is as important to the outcome of a business as the quality of the service you provide.
Challenging, because building these programs is a full-spectrum commitment. It takes time, a dedicated team, outside guidance from fellow experts and auditors, and a willingness to examine every aspect of your business.
It is one thing to go through the motions. It is an entirely different matter to build something that truly works as intended for the business.
We are one of the few companies in the mobile marketing technology industry to have successfully achieved this accreditation. I am incredibly proud of the TUNE Security Team and how dedicated we are as an organization to building the most trusted and secure mobile marketing system of record.
Why Is SOC 2 Type II Important?
SOC 2 accreditation is an important milestone for TUNE and for our industry as a whole. In a space where data privacy and security is as important as the services we provide, SOC 2 Type II accreditation sends a clear signal to customers and companies about how we approach security, privacy, and the protection of customer data.
Our goal is to create a robust security program that sets a new bar for how our industry approaches data and customer and company security standards. In addition to SOC 2 Type II accreditation, TUNE services also meet EU-US Privacy Shield data transfer practices as well as German and EU ePrivacy certification standards regarding end-user privacy and data compliance. And we are continuing to innovate for our clients in the marketing technology industry to be prepared for GDPR enforcement in the spring.
Keep on the lookout for more from us here at TUNE as we continue our mission to build the world’s leading mobile measurement system of record.
