Success Stories: TrustNet’s Role in Helping Businesses Achieve SOC 2 Compliance in 2023

| Blog, Case Studies


In 2023, the importance of SOC 2 compliance has become more pronounced than ever. As businesses increasingly rely on cloud-based services and third-party vendors to handle customer data, stringent data security measures are paramount. SOC 2 compliance signifies that a business has information security controls that are regularly monitored to detect malicious or unrecognized activity. 

Achieving SOC 2 compliance not only enhances a company’s reputation but also provides a competitive advantage in the marketplace. It demonstrates a firm’s commitment to maintaining robust security and data protection practices, thus building trust with customers and partners. Furthermore, it can attract security-conscious prospects, potentially boosting sales. 

SOC 2 compliance also allows businesses to show their customers that their data is protected. Validated by an external auditor’s report, this assurance can significantly improve customer confidence and demonstrate an unwavering commitment to top-notch information security. 

TrustNet’s strategic solutions in 2023 have been instrumental in guiding businesses through this rigorous process. By helping organizations like Calendly, ExperiencePoint, and more navigate the complexities of achieving SOC 2 compliance, TrustNet has played a vital role in fortifying them against potential data threats. 

Calendly’s Success Story 

In the face of escalating cyber threats and data breaches, Calendly, a globally renowned CRM and meeting scheduling company, recognized the necessity of robust cybersecurity measures. Their platform, trusted by millions worldwide for scheduling meetings and managing customer relationships, held a wealth of sensitive customer data. Calendly needed to fortify its cybersecurity defenses to protect this data and its reputation. 

Acting on this need, Calendly engaged with our team to implement the NIST Risk Assessment, HIPAA, SOC 2, and ISO 27001 protocols. These measures helped Calendly identify and prioritize potential cybersecurity threats and ensured they met industry standards for data protection. ISO 27001, a comprehensive security management system, enabled Calendly to assess and enhance its cybersecurity posture continually. 

The implementation of these rigorous cybersecurity measures yielded substantial benefits for Calendly. Customers felt more secure and satisfied, knowing their sensitive data was well-protected. Compliance with industry regulations improved, attracting new customers and business partners. Calendly’s successful example illustrates how implementing the proper cybersecurity measures can protect a business and significantly contribute to its growth and success.
