This rigorous, independent assessment of our internal security controls serves as validation of our dedication and adherence to the highest standards for security.
SOC 2 Type 2 is a demanding benchmark of enterprise security and compliance. We are delighted to receive this report with zero exceptions, highlighting our ability to provide a best-in-class service for all our customers and give them the confidence they need to focus on what matters - empowering their workforce.

Read on to find out what we have achieved, why we pursued SOC 2 compliance, and how we are continuously improving our internal processes to reinforce our commitment to safeguarding customers.
Our commitment to security
- We consider security and privacy one of our top priorities. Pursuing SOC 2 demonstrates our commitment.
- We want you to use eduMe with peace of mind that your data is safe with us.
- For security-conscious businesses, SOC 2 is becoming a minimal requirement when considering a third party provider. For good reason - it helps us to continually improve our own security practices.
- It allows us to ensure the highest level of security for our customers. By validating our controls diligently, we are better equipped to prevent data breaches and violations of a users’ privacy. This protects them from the negative effects of data compromises, such as regulatory action and reputational damage.
What is SOC 2?
SOC 2 compliance aims to ensure organisations securely manage data to protect their customers and partners. Developed by the American Institute of CPAs (AICPA), SOC 2 requires compliance for managing customer data based on five criteria or “trust services criteria” - security, availability, processing integrity, confidentiality and privacy.
SOC 2 is an audit framework that assesses an organisation's internal controls and processes. The audit report is issued by a third-party auditor and provides assurance to stakeholders that an organisation has adequate controls in place to protect the security and privacy of their data.
Why we pursued SOC 2
In June 2022, we announced our achievement of SOC 2 Type 1 compliance. The process involved a comprehensive evaluation of our security processes, but only captured a snapshot of our controls at a specific point in time.
Pursuing a SOC 2 Type 2 audit meant that we could go a step further, inviting an independent auditor to validate how well our system and controls perform over time to ensure continued compliance and reliability for our enterprise-level customers.
How we're continuing to safeguard our customers
This is an important milestone but is in no way an end to our commitment to our customers and the security of their data.
eduMe’s mission is to give everyone the opportunity to be successful at work. We ensure that data flows freely, illuminating the path so that you’re no longer operating in the dark.
