We are officially certified as a SOC 2 service organization, as defined by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA). SOC 2 certification means that JustFOIA underwent a System and Organization Control (SOC) 2 Type 2 audit by an external auditing firm.

What is SOC 2?

SOC 2 requires companies to establish and follow strict information security policies and procedures by encompassing security, availability, processing, integrity, and confidentiality of client data. SOC 2 audits are conducted through an independent auditor to assure a business’ process, information technology, and risk management controls are properly designed.

A SOC 2 certification provides additional assurance for our clients. We are proud to adhere to one of the most stringent, industry-accepted auditing standards for SaaS companies!

The independent audit was conducted by Crowe LLP , one of the largest independent accounting and business consulting firms in the United States. This organization validated our software’s stringent security and governance controls.
