What is a SOC 2 Type II Attestation?

The Type II designation specifically verifies the effectiveness of our security controls over an extended period of time, demonstrating a robust and consistent commitment to data security. To obtain the attestation, ddms passed an audit performed by a third-party organization recognized by AICPA and based on the criteria described in the TSP 100, 2017 Trust Services Criteria for Security, Availability, Processing Integrity, Confidentiality, and Privacy.
