Tingono Achieves SOC 2 Type 2 Compliance: A Milestone in Security and Trust

We are thrilled to announce that Tingono, has successfully achieved SOC 2 Type 2 compliance! This significant milestone reflects our unwavering commitment to security, transparency, and the highest standards of data protection.

What Is SOC 2?

SOC 2 (Service Organization Control 2) is a rigorous auditing standard developed by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA). It focuses on the controls and processes related to security, availability, processing integrity, confidentiality, and privacy. Achieving SOC 2 compliance demonstrates our dedication to safeguarding your sensitive information.

From SOC 2 Type 1 to Type 2

Previously, we held SOC 2 Type 1 compliance, which assessed the design and implementation of our controls at a specific point in time. However, SOC 2 Type 2 goes beyond that. It evaluates the effectiveness of these controls over an extended period, typically six months or more. Our successful transition to Type 2 signifies our ongoing commitment to maintaining robust security practices.


Tingono takes security seriously with notable steps to achieve SOC 2 Type 2 compliance. Here are some key aspects of our compliance:

  1. Role-Based Access Controls: We define access permissions based on job roles, ensuring that only authorized personnel can access sensitive data.

  2. Ongoing Security Hardening: We continuously monitor and enhance our security practices to stay ahead of potential threats.

  3. High Standards for Hiring & Training: Our team undergoes rigorous security training, and we maintain strict hiring standards to ensure a security-conscious workforce.

  4. Data Encryption: All data, whether in transit or at rest, is encrypted to protect against unauthorized access.

  5. No Transfer of PII: We prohibit the transfer of Protected Personally Identifiable Information (PII) to maintain user privacy.

  6. Annual 3rd Party Pen Testing: Regular penetration testing by third-party experts helps identify vulnerabilities and ensures robust security.

  7. Regular Vulnerability Scans: We conduct routine vulnerability scans to proactively address any weaknesses.

  8. Periodic BCDR Tests: Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery (BCDR) tests are performed periodically to ensure our systems can withstand unexpected events.

Tingono’s commitment to security ensures that your data is safe and protected.
