Bridgit is now SOC 2 Type 1 compliant in a push to meet enterprise-grade security needs

Bridgit has consolidated its strict security policies to meet SOC 2 Type 1 compliance. We are committed to keeping customer data safe and secure.

Cybersecurity has become one of the most important concerns for IT leaders across every industry. In fact, McKinsey reports that since 2020, cybersecurity has become “the most common technology transformation that companies are pursuing”.

In a rapidly evolving security landscape, we understand that it’s vital for us to do everything in our power to keep our customers’ data safe and secure. The push for data security in construction isn’t just restricted to a contractor’s internal systems either. It’s vital that their partners and service providers also have just as tight security measures to ensure there’s no avenue for leaks or hacks within the data pipeline.

That’s why, we’re excited to announce that Bridgit is now SOC 2 Type 1 compliant. What does that mean? It means that Bridgit has consolidated its security policies in alignment with SOC 2 standards and is committed to achieving SOC 2 Type 2 certification.

We’ve also assembled an internal, cross-functional committee that will oversee all security measures that includes leaders from our Engineering, IT, and Business Operations teams. We have agreed on a common security framework that meets SOC 2 requirements and have onboarded the automated compliance platform, Vanta, which allows us to ensure all of our employees are meeting those policy requirements.

“Becoming SOC 2 Type 1 compliant is the first step in showing our customers that we value the security of their data. The team at Bridgit has worked hard to not only put security guidelines in place but also to uphold and continually improve those guidelines.”

James Raymond, Director, IT at Bridgit

Rather than just telling you that we’re keeping your data safe, we want to demonstrate our commitment to you, and continuously ensure that we’re the most fortified location in your data pipeline.

Bridgit is now actively working towards SOC 2 Type 2 certification to solidify its commitment.
