What are SOC2, HIPAA and GDPR Certifications?
SOC 2 is an internationally recognized auditing standard developed by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants. SOC 2 audits are performed by independent auditing firms that thoroughly examine the controls and processes involved in storing, handling, and transmitting data securely.
The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) sets the standard for sensitive patient data protection. Companies that deal with protected health information (PHI) must have physical, network, and process security measures in place and follow them to ensure HIPAA Compliance. Covered entities (anyone providing treatment, payment, and operations in healthcare) and business associates (anyone who has access to patient information and provides support in treatment, payment, or operations) must meet HIPAA Compliance. Other entities, such as subcontractors and any other related business associates must also be in compliance.
General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a regulation on data protection and privacy in the European Union (EU) and the European Economic Area (EEA). Companies and services that operate in these economic zones or cater to individuals protected under GDPR are required to abide by GDPR thus making GDPR a powerful international data privacy law.
We are thankful to the whole Mammoth team who underwent the necessary security training and who now live and breathe security, even more so than before. A special mention here goes to the security and DevOps team who worked relentlessly through the entire process.
