Fortris achieves SOC 2 certification

Digital asset treasury operations platform Fortris has achieved System and Organization Controls (SOC) 2 Type 1 certification, following an in-depth assessment by external auditors.

Independent audit firm SW Spain found that Fortris is operating to the best practice criteria set by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA).

SOC 2 Type 1 is an assessment of service providers to establish that they are securely processing and managing client data. It is one of the most widely recognized regulatory compliance assessments.

Fortris CEO, Shane Lourensse, said: “Achieving SOC 2 Type 1 reflects our commitment to our customers and the systems we have put in place to protect their data. ‘Security first’ is one of our core values, and one that we apply to all areas of our operations.”

Auditors have found that Fortris is on track to qualify for SOC 2 Type 2 certification, which is an assessment of how the established and recognized internal processes perform over time.
