Commitment to Security, Confidentiality, Availability and Privacy Demonstrates Focus on Protecting Customer Data
February 8, 2024- GovPilot- The Operating System For Local Governments, achieved SOC 2 Type 1 compliance in accordance with American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) standards for SOC for Service Organizations.
The SOC 2 audit is one the highest recognized standards of information security compliance in the world. SOC 2 is a security framework that outlines standards for safeguarding customer data. To achieve SOC 2 compliance, organizations must pass a third-party audit.

Achieving this milestone is a testament to GovPilot's ongoing commitment to maintaining the highest level of security, confidentiality, availability and privacy.
