Compliance: Shopware Successfully Completes SOC 2 Type 1 Examination 

We are excited to share some remarkable news. Shopware has received its first SOC 2® (System and Organization Controls) Type 1 report and has successfully completed the examination for security and quality controls. This accomplishment represents a significant milestone in our continuous pursuit of security, trust, and excellence.

What is the SOC 2 Report?

SOC 2 is a widely recognized standard for service organizations that operate in the cloud. It defines the criteria and controls for managing and protecting customer data in five trust service categories: security, availability, processing integrity, confidentiality, and privacy. A SOC 2 Type 1 report evaluates the design and implementation of these controls at a specific point in time. The reports are issued in accordance with the standards established by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA), a professional organization with more than 428,000 members that sets accounting and auditing standards in the United States.

The SOC 2 Type 1 report for Shopware was conducted by an independent external auditor and assesses compliance with the Trust Services Criteria, a set of standards covering five critical areas.

Trust Criteria: 

  • Security: Ensuring that systems and data are protected from unauthorized access and breaches 

  • Availability: Confirming that systems and services are consistently accessible and operational when needed 

  • Processing Integrity: Verifying that data processing is reliable, accurate, and complete

  • Confidentiality: Protecting sensitive information from unauthorized disclosure  

  • Privacy: Managing and safeguarding personal data in compliance with relevant privacy laws and regulations

A Milestone in Compliance, Ensuring Quality and Security

This achievement not only benefits Shopware by strengthening reputation and security posture, but also provides tremendous value to our partners, as they know that we have taken every measure to ensure the security, availability, processing integrity, confidentiality, and protection of their data.

"Our valued partners and customers deserve top-notch data security and the certainty, that data will be handled with the highest level of care and compliance. By completing SOC 2, we underscore our commitment to trust and credibility, adhering to the highest industry standards."
