Cresset successfully achieves SOC 2 compliance

Cresset is pleased to announce the successful completion of its SOC 2®  (System and Organization Controls 2) Type 1 audit, achieving compliance with the leading industry standards for customer data security. This demonstrates our ongoing commitment to providing a secure data environment for our customers.

Developed by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA), a SOC 2 information security standard is a report that validates controls relevant to security, availability, integrity, confidentiality, and privacy. SOC 2 has a rigorous requirement on how companies handle customer data and information, so compliance guarantees there are established and implemented organizational practices in place to safeguard customer data.

At its core, Cresset is committed to providing mission-critical data to industries such pharmaceutical, biotechnology and agrochemical. Data integrity and security is a fundamental part of how Cresset manages user identity. SOC2 Type 1 compliance represents a commitment that secure systems and controls are maintained by the organization on an ongoing basis.
