The Importance of SOC 2 Type II Attestation

SOC 2 (System and Organization Controls 2) Type II attestation is a rigorous independent audit that evaluates an organization’s data security, availability, processing integrity, confidentiality, and privacy controls. This certification demonstrates that CyncHealth has implemented and adheres to strict policies and procedures that protect data against unauthorized access and breaches.

The Audit Process

Achieving SOC 2 Type II attestation is no small feat.
