MIAMI (October 17, 2023) - Springshare, a leading cloud software vendor for libraries, is pleased to announce that it has successfully achieved SOC 2 Type II compliance for the second year in a row.
The SOC 2 information security audit is a recognized industry benchmark for customer data protection and operational standards. Springshare’s continued SOC 2 compliance, affirmed by an independent auditor, demonstrates the company’s commitment to its customers through its implementation of best-in-class privacy and security practices.
"At Springshare, everyone works together to stay security conscious and take action to align with best practices in data privacy," said Slaven Zivkovic, Springshare Founder and CEO. "Privacy and confidentiality are key principles of library service; as a library-centric platform, Springshare is deeply invested in upholding these values and protecting the data of our library clients and their patrons. Our SOC 2 recertification reaffirms this commitment."
