Campspot, a leading campground management software provider, has successfully secured its Service Organization Control (SOC) 2 Type 2 certification. The achievement marks an essential stride in the company’s commitment to customer data protection and sets new standards in operational excellence, security, and privacy.
The SOC 2 Type 2 certification, administered by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA), serves as an indisputable confirmation of Campspot’s robust systems and protocols.
This certification was granted after an exhaustive, meticulous assessment by a reputed third-party auditor, who analyzed the company’s controls and procedures over an extended period of time.
The attainment of this prestigious certification underscores Campspot’s ability to act as an effective custodian of its customers’ sensitive data.
This honor is not just an attestation of Campspot’s comprehensive data handling and system security mechanisms, but it also paves the way for the company to form alliances with a broader spectrum of service providers and customers. These new partnerships are expected to include organizations with high demands for secure data handling, such as state and local governments.
“Campspot monitors, corrects, and improves its internal processes continuously to maintain our SOC 2 Type 2 status. Some of these processes include code reviews for production changes, auditing workflows from when code is committed to Campspot’s repositories to when it goes live on our production servers, and ensuring only authorized, authenticated personnel have access to customer data,” said Aaren Twedt, Campspot Governance and Compliance Lead.
Twedt further highlighted the company’s robust disaster recovery and business continuity strategies, which play an integral role in ensuring the accuracy and integrity of customer data across all backups and data centers.
“We also perform additional disaster recovery and business continuity operations in order to validate that all of our customer data is accurate and correct across our backups and data centers.”
The attainment of the SOC 2 Type 2 certification not only fortifies Campspot’s reputation as a pioneer in the campground management space but also underscores the company’s unwavering commitment to exploring new avenues in data security.
