Covered Insurance Solutions (“Covered”), an independent digital insurance marketplace, announced today that it has completed a SOC 2Ⓡ Type 2 audit, further evidencing the company’s steadfast commitment to ensuring data privacy and security. Linford & Company LLP, a highly respected certified public accounting and information security firm, administered the audit. They attest to Covered meeting SOC 2 standards and guidelines for the security, availability, and processing integrity of the systems Covered uses to process users’ data, and the confidentiality and privacy of the information processed by these systems.
