Skillable Earns ISO-27001 Certification and Renews SOC 2 Certification, Joining Top .01% of Most Secure Companies in the World

It’s no longer enough for modern SaaS platforms to be reliable, scalable and high-performing. Now, more than ever, platforms must be trustworthy, ensuring users they’ll be protected and secure while operating platforms, storing and capturing user data and more.

Determining the trustworthiness of a platform involves looking beyond the software and at the company itself. At Skillable, we’ve built trustworthiness into our core, which is why we’re excited to announce we’ve been awarded ISO-27001 certification and renewed our SOC 2 certification.

What does this mean for you, our customers?

ISO-27001 and SOC 2 certification denote that Skillable maintains the robust defenses needed to prevent cyber criminals from infiltrating your private data. We carefully secure sensitive data, fortify against cybercriminals and reduce costs associated with information security. These certifications go beyond just technology and attest to our process, patterns and practices implemented throughout Skillable—they prove that security is part of our DNA.

Acquiring these certifications is not trivial. It’s a result of yearlong efforts across all facets of the Skillable organization, involving technology and process engineering, software design, technology implementations and external third-party audits to validate it all.

Combined with our regular cycle of external penetration testing and accessibility testing, ISO-27001 and SOC 2 enable Skillable to meet the security and privacy requirements of leading technology companies such as Google, Microsoft and Amazon. Additionally, these certifications enable Skillable to create a framework that meet robust international privacy standards, including GDPR, Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX), California’s CCPA and more.

As one of the top .01% of the world’s most secure companies, Skillable is dedicated to helping customers meet the commercial, contractual and legal requirements necessary to safeguard against today’s security vulnerabilities. The earning of the ISO-27001 certification and renewal of SOC 2 certification is proof our long-standing commitment to security.
