Nova Benefits Achieves SOC 2 Type II Compliance

At Nova Benefits, safeguarding the confidentiality and security of our clients' data is paramount, especially in the fast-paced world of insurance technology (insuretech). We're thrilled to announce that Nova Benefits has achieved SOC 2 Type II compliance, marking a significant milestone in our commitment to ensuring the highest standards of data security.

Significance of SOC 2 Type II Compliance in the Insuretech Industry

In the insuretech industry, where vast amounts of sensitive data are processed daily, maintaining the highest standards of data security is not just a priority but a necessity. SOC 2 Type II compliance provides assurance to our clients and partners that Nova Benefits adheres to rigorous standards in safeguarding their data.

What is SOC 2 Type II?

SOC 2 Type II is a widely recognised auditing standard developed by the American Institute of CPAs (AICPA). It emphasizes on an organisation's controls related to security, availability, processing integrity, confidentiality, and privacy of customer data. Achieving SOC 2 Type II compliance requires demonstrating that these controls are effectively designed and implemented over a specified period of 6 months.

Trust Principles of SOC 2 Type II

SOC 2 Type II compliance encapsulates five trust service criteria:

  1. Security: The system is protected against unauthorised access, both physically and logically.
  2. Availability: The system is available for operation and use as committed or agreed upon.
  3. Processing Integrity: System processing is complete, valid, accurate, timely, and authorized.
  4. Confidentiality: Information designated as confidential is protected as committed or agreed upon.
  5. Privacy: Personal information is collected, used, retained, disclosed, and disposed of in conformity with the commitments in the entity's privacy notice.

How Did Nova Benefits Achieve SOC 2 Type II Compliance?

The journey to SOC 2 Type II compliance was no small feat. It required meticulous planning, rigorous internal assessments, and unwavering dedication from our team. We conducted a comprehensive review of our systems, processes, and controls to ensure they met the stringent criteria outlined in the SOC 2 framework.

Our team worked tirelessly to implement necessary enhancements and address any gaps identified during the audit preparation phase. We collaborated with the external auditors to demonstrate our commitment to data security and ensure a smooth audit process from start to finish.
