Independent assessments recognize Thnks for implementing the highest standard of internal security controls
Nashville, TN – June 21, 2022 – Thnks, the leading B2B digital gratitude platform that empowers business professionals to build better relationships by sharing personalized gestures of appreciation, announced today that it has successfully completed the Service Organization Control (SOC) 2 Type II attestation and ISO 27001 certification.
ISO 27001 is a globally recognized standard mandating numerous controls for the establishment, maintenance, and certification of an information security management system (ISMS). Thnks is designed to cover all key areas of a robust information security program with a specific focus on providing secure products and services for employees, customers, and partners. This rigorous, independent assessment of internal security controls serves as evidence of the company’s dedication and adherence to the highest standards for security. An important milestone, it confirms Thnks’ ongoing commitment to its customers and the security of their data.
To achieve the ISO 27001 certification, organizations must demonstrate a systematic and documented approach to protecting and managing sensitive company and customer information including intellectual property, employee and customer data, financial information and information entrusted to it by third parties.
“Our digital gratitude platform supports clients across all kinds of industries, many of which require complex security and compliance needs. At Thnks we view security as the foundation upon which our products are built and upon which trust with our customers is earned and maintained,” said Brendan Kamm, CEO and co-founder of Thnks.
Thnks is dedicated to being an arbiter of the highest industry protocols when it comes to security. The company uses Drata’s compliance automation platform to continuously monitor its internal security controls against the highest possible standards. With Drata, Thnks has real-time visibility across the organization to ensure the end-to-end security and compliance posture of its systems.
“Achieving a SOC 2 Type II attestation report and ISO 27001 certification distinguishes Thnks and illustrates their dedication to data protection and security controls of the highest caliber. Customers and prospects can feel confident in knowing Thnks is committed to continuously protecting their information,” said Adam Markowitz, co-founder and CEO of Drata.
The ISO 27001 and SOC 2 audits were conducted by leading compliance assessor A-LIGN, a technology-enabled security and compliance partner trusted by more than 2,500 global organizations to help mitigate cybersecurity risks.
“Achieving ISO 27001 and SOC 2 compliance demonstrates Thnks’ diligence in implementing strong procedures and controls for customers that value strong security practices,” said Steve Simmons, COO at A-LIGN. “By engaging A-LIGN as their trusted third-party assessor, Thnks has shown that their commitment to protecting customers’ information runs deep.”
Established by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA), the SOC 2 examination is designed for organizations of any size, regardless of industry and scope, to ensure that the personal assets of their potential and existing customers are protected. SOC 2 reports are recognized globally and affirm that a company’s infrastructure, software, people, data, policies, procedures, and operations have been formally reviewed.
