SALT LAKE CITY, -- Filevine is pleased to announce that Filevine's Legal Work platform(s) in the United States and Canada, including Filevine, Vinesign, Lead Docket, and Outlaw, meet Service Organization Control (SOC) 2 Type II standards based on an independent third-party audit. The audit was conducted by Marcum, LLP, an American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) auditing firm.
SOC 2 reports are industry-recognized security audits which assure the design and effectiveness of controls in place at a service organization, demonstrating the company's ability to adhere to critical security practices. The rigorous audit, which spanned twelve months from August 31, 2021 to August 31, 2022, included all five Trust Services Criteria (TSC): Information Security, Availability, Processing Integrity, Confidentiality, and Privacy.
Additionally, Marcum reported that Filevine's products also met the safeguard requirements of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act (HITECH), security standards relevant to personal health information.
Furthermore, the SOC 2 Type II audit report included the testing and efficacy of Criminal Justice Information Services (CJIS) security controls in addition to the testing and efficacy of International Organization for Standardization (ISO) 27002 security controls. Combined, this comprehensive SOC 2 Type II +HIPAA, +CJIS, +ISO sets Filevine's platforms apart in the legal industry.
