Definition of a SOC Audit

A System and Organisation Controls (SOCs) are software and technology infrastructure that businesses use in order to ensure their data is secure, and to minimise the risk of a data leak.

In accordance with SSAE NO. 18 of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA), Tencent Meeting was audited by an independent third party, certified to award the SOC 2 Type 2 certification. 

In the cloud computing industry, SOC 2 Type 2 is one of the most rigorous security certifications, which focuses on security, availability, processing integrity, confidentiality and privacy. Earning the SOC 2 Type 2 certification, demonstrates the companies capability when it comes to data security, 

In addition to the SOC 2 Type 2 certification, Tencent Meeting also obtained a Grade III Certification on Protection of Information Security from the Ministry of Public Security in China ( the highest accreditation level for non-bak organisations in China).

Other certifications include the Trusted Cloud enterprise level SaaS certification, the only authoritative certification system for cloud computing in China.
