LOS ANGELES, CA, January 18th, 2022
Swoogo is thrilled to announce that it has achieved SOC 2 Type II compliance in accordance with American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) standards for SOC for Service Organizations, also known as SSAE 18. Reaching this standard with an unqualified opinion serves as third-party industry validation that Swoogo provides enterprise-level security for customers’ data secured in the Swoogo LLC System. This level of security is provided to all of Swoogo’s customers, large and small, at no additional cost.
Swoogo is a cloud-based event management platform that serves customers throughout the United States, and across the globe. Security & compliance is one of Swoogo’s top priorities, and they never stop reaching for new goals, and new certifications of compliance so every customer can rest easy, knowing their data is secure, and never sold to a third party.
“Passing a compliance audit at this level not only requires us as a company to be highly security-minded, it also means we have to train our employees to make sure our secure practices reach every level of our organization,” says Kerry Wentworth, Program Manager of Product Ops, who captained the auditing process. “It takes commitment and cooperation and I’m so proud of our whole company for working together to make sure our customer data is completely secure.”
Swoogo LLC was audited by Prescient Assurance , a global leader in security and compliance attestation for B2B, SaaS companies worldwide.

What does this new compliance mean?

Financial data, personal information, confidential business numbers? They’re all safe and protected at Swoogo.
