Developed by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA), the SOC2 framework is used to examine an organization’s controls that are in place to protect and secure its systems and services.  The robust requirements of this security management framework ensure best practices for securing assets including corporate information, intellectual property, employee information, and information entrusted by third parties.

This certification proves that VIQ met rigorous standards in ensuring Security, Availability, Processing Integrity, and Confidentiality as defined in the SOC2 framework’s Trust Services Criteria (TSC).  Our SOC 2 Type 1 is a milestone pillar in our security program at VIQ, underlying the advanced and market leading maturity of the security controls of our information security systems.  The company is committed to building a portfolio of the most advanced security certifications.
