SOC Attestations Confirmed!

Article

June 25, 2024 - CheckSig confirms for the fourth consecutive year the SOC1/SOC2 Type II attestations, provided by Deloitte Enterprise Risk Services, as proof of its ongoing commitment to maintaining the highest standards of operational security.

All companies, especially those in the financial sector, should conduct internal controls on processes and services; the most reputable ones also undergo external and independent audits. Only the best manage to obtain the System and Organization Controls (SOC) attestations, the international standard for control quality. In fact, SOC attestations are the independent and objective verification by an external auditor of the quality of system and organizational controls. For clients, partners, and auditors, they are the best guarantee of security, reliability, and transparency.

SOC1 attests the quality and robustness of internal controls in accounting and finance; SOC2 attests the processes and systems for data security, their availability in “disaster” scenarios, the integrity of processes, the confidentiality of information, and user privacy. In particular, CheckSig obtained Type I attestations (referring to a specific point in time) in 2021 and has held Type II attestations (referring to ongoing audits) since 2022.

The renewal of the attestations is the result of an independent evaluation by Deloitte Enterprise Risk Services, a certification body specialized in assessing cyber risks. The review of processes by a recognized and independent authority, which analyzes various aspects of data security and management, provides further proof of CheckSig’s reliability, strengthening the trust of clients, partners, and auditors in the company.

CheckSig is the only Italian crypto company with SOC attestations. This distinctive element is complemented by other unique features in the national landscape, such as insurance coverage (provided by Munich RE) and the ability to act as a tax withholding agent. In a rapidly evolving sector like digital assets, maintaining high-quality standards is essential to ensure the protection of clients’ funds.
