SAN DIEGO, CA — November 3, 2022 —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 II attestation report. 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.
SOC 2 Type II ensures the highest customer data and security standards. This independent assessment of internal security controls validates its dedication and adherence to the highest security, confidentiality, and availability standards. Developed by the Association of International Certified Professional Accountants (AICPA), SOC 2 requires 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.
“Achieving SOC 2, Type II compliance is an important milestone for Trust & Will, as we enter into a new era of digital vulnerability and security flaws,” said Eric Urhausen, Head of Engineering at Trust & Will. “We strive to set the standard in our industry, with rigorous monitoring and security standards that better support and secure our customers' sensitive information about their most important life decisions.”
