Our customers can use Simplifile anytime anywhere, knowing their information is safe.

Simplifile, the nation’s largest and leading electronic recording (e-recording) service, has successfully completed the Service Organization Control (SOC) 2 Type II audit, meeting the SOC 2 criteria and standards for security.

SOC 2, the same audit report used by Amazon Web Services and Google, validates the security of infrastructures and services and is rapidly becoming an industry standard.

“We take security seriously,” said Lance Grover, director of information systems and security at Simplifile. “Completing this audit confirms and reassures our customers that we establish and maintain the highest level of internal controls and security. Our customers can use Simplifile anytime anywhere, knowing their information is safe.”

The Owen Group, who conducted the audit, verified that Simplifile’s information security practices, policies and procedures met the SOC 2 criteria, stating in the report, “We have examined the description…and the suitability of the design and operating effectiveness of controls to meet the criteria for the security principle set forth in TSP (Trust Service Principles) section 100.”

The Trust Service Principles, which SOC 2 is based upon, are modeled around four broad areas: Policies, Communications, Procedures, and Monitoring. Each principle has defined criteria that must be met to demonstrate adherence to the principles and produce an unqualified opinion, which means no significant exceptions found during the audit.

The security principle audit assesses data centers and their protection against unauthorized access, both physical and logical.

Simplifile regularly reviews the risks that may threaten the achievement of the criteria for the security principle set forth in TSP section 100, Trust Services Principles, Criteria, and Illustrations for Security, Availability, Processing Integrity, Confidentiality, and Privacy (AICPA, Technical Practice Aids).

“Since we’ve been in business, we’ve been proactive in our efforts to ensure our customers never have to worry about the security of their information, documents, and recordings,” said Paul Clifford, president of Simplifile.

More than one-third of the nation’s counties and recording jurisdictions, in addition to thousands of title offices, banks, attorneys, and other organizations who submit documents for recording, utilize Simplifile’s e-recording service every day.
