“Notarius has just added an additional level of compliance and good governance to its processes. We owe this tremendous success to the unrivalled excellence of our teams of experts. This demonstrates beyond a doubt that we apply best security practices and the highest standards in the industry,” says Patrick Drolet, Head of Innovation at Portage CyberTech and CEO of Notarius.
Since its launch, the ConsignO Cloud electronic signature platform has secured its position as a leader in the public and parapublic sectors, as well in industries with strict legal requirements. Notable users include the governments of Alberta and New Brunswick, school boards, ÉTS Montréal, Wilfrid Laurier University, numerous financial departments, the Quebec Chambre des Notaires, and dozens of professional associations.
Service Organization Control (SOC) audits for service organizations are completed by independent third parties according to a rigorous audit framework developed by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA). The purpose of SOC 2® Type 2 audits is to inspect an organization’s systems, design, processes, and operational efficiency to ensure that the service provider fulfils its respective Trust Services Criteria.
By obtaining its SOC 2® Type 2 certification, Notarius has demonstrated that the controls implemented and operated for its ConsignO Cloud platform meet its trust service commitments and security system requirements as outlined in section 100 of TSP, 2017 Trust Services Criteria for Security, Availability, Processing Integrity, Confidentiality, and Privacy (AICPA, Trust Services Criteria).
Already certified ISO 9001, 27001, eIDAS and Star1, Notarius benefited from support from Prompt and its Cybersecurity Innovation Program to mobilize its teams during the audit process and achieve the certification.
Cybersecurity: Empowering an informed choice
With cybersecurity challenges pervasive, public and private organizations are increasingly looking for suppliers they can trust with certifications such as ISO 27001 and SOC 2® Type 2 to facilitate their digital transformation.
The addition of this new certification to Notarius’ already impressive portfolio demonstrates its desire to constantly increase the quality of its solutions and remain at the forefront of security for the entire North American market.
