Trust & Will, the leading digital estate planning platform in the U.S, is proud to announce that it has received a clean SOC 2 Type I attestation report. To date, Trust & Will is the only online estate planning company to carry SOC 2 certification. The attestation report affirms that Trust & Will’s information security practices, policies, procedures, and operations meet the rigorous SOC 2 Trust Service Criteria for security.
Trust & Will is now the only digital estate planning company to carry SOC 2 compliance. Obtaining SOC 2 ensures the highest standards for customer data and security. This independent assessment of internal security controls validates its dedication and adherence to the highest standards for security, confidentiality, and availability. Developed by the Association of International Certified Professional Accountants (AICPA), SOC 2 is an extensive auditing procedure that ensures a company is handling customer data securely and in a manner that protects the organization as well as the privacy of its customers. SOC 2 is designed specifically for service providers storing customer data in the cloud.
“We are delighted to receive a clean SOC 2 Type I attestation report as it substantiates our ongoing commitment to securing our customers’ data,” said Eric Urhausen, Head of Engineering at Trust & Will. “We continuously prioritize the improvement of our security posture, which helps increase trust in our product and in the digital estate planning industry as a whole.”
