TORONTO, Canada – MinuteBox, the leading security-focused corporate record, minute book and legal entity management cloud, announced today that it has achieved ISO 27001 certification following an independent audit. This announcement marks a significant achievement for MinuteBox as it is the only entity management cloud to announce that it has achieved both ISO 27001 and SOC 2 Type II certification.
ISO 27001 compliance is an internationally recognized auditable certification showcasing MinuteBox’s commitment to upholding the highest quality standards of information security management. The certification process requires a formal audit of its information management systems as well as an examination of how MinuteBox’s entity management platform operates to preserve client confidentiality. The audit is performed by an accredited independent third-party audit firm.
“Obtaining the ISO 27001 certification further demonstrates our commitment to security and compliance.” said Daniel Levine, CEO of MinuteBox. “Nothing is more important to us as a company than ensuring our client information is kept confidential and secure.”
The ISO 27001 certification furthers MinuteBox’s established leadership in secure cloud-based entity management for legal practices. The new certification complements MinuteBox’s SOC II Type 2 certification, which validates how a company protects and secures customer data using cloud-based security processes. This makes MinuteBox the first and only entity management cloud to announce it has achieved both ISO 27001 and SOC II Type 2 certifications.
MinuteBox has also achieved SOC 2 Type II compliance in accordance with American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) standards for SOC for Service Organizations also known as SSAE 18. Achieving this standard with an unqualified opinion serves as third-party industry validation that MinuteBox provides enterprise-level security for customer data secured in MinuteBox systems.
An unqualified opinion on a SOC 2 Type II audit report demonstrates to MinuteBox’s current and future customers that they manage their data with the highest standard of security and compliance.
“We encourage others in the industry to follow our lead and pursue these certifications. Together we can strengthen the security posture of our industry and create greater confidence for our clients as they race to modernize and adopt secure cloud services.” said Levine.
