Luminary Platforms, a vertical SaaS company providing trust & estate enablement technologies for wealth advisors, today announced its successful completion of its Type 1 SOC 2 audit as of Feb 15, 2023 as it looks to establish industry leading standards for application functionality and data security.
The SOC 2 audit was conducted by leading compliance assessor A-LIGN, a technology-enabled security and compliance partner trusted by more than 2,500 global organizations to help mitigate cybersecurity risks.
The analog world in which nearly all trust & estate data exists is neither accessible nor secure. We think a modern, purpose built technical infrastructure can solve both of these problems. But they must be solved at the same time. And as much our product roadmap emphasizes transparency and collaboration, it places the same primary importance on data protection. We’re delighted to have third-party validation of our efforts as we continue to build technology that powers new capabilities for our wealth advisor customers and their clients.
- David Barnard, Luminary’s President & CEO
Established by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA), the SOC 2 examination is designed for organizations of any size, regardless of industry and scope, to ensure the personal assets of their potential and existing customers are protected. SOC 2 reports are recognized globally and affirm that a company’s infrastructure, software, people, data, policies, procedures and operations have been formally reviewed.
“A SOC 2 audit is a statement about an organization’s commitment to protecting their information.” said Stephanie Oyler-Rankin, SOC Practice Lead at A-LIGN. “As a trusted third-party assessment firm, A-LIGN independently evaluates client data processes and procedures, governance on internal controls and security posture. Luminary’s SOC 2 report validates its commitment to data security and protection, as well as compliance with critical standards to mitigate cybersecurity threats.”
