How we work behind the scenes to protect and secure your information.
(ISO) 27001 is a global information security standard for information security management. Checkr follows the ISO 27001 standard to continuously identify, select, maintain and improve information security controls to preserve the confidentiality, integrity and availability of our systems and information.
Service Organization Controls (SOC) reports are designed to help build trust and confidence in the services performed and controls of a service organization. A SOC2 Type II report provides detailed information about the suitability of the design of controls and an independent auditor’s assurance opinion on the operating effectiveness of the controls. Checkr’s SOC2 Type II examination report is available upon request by contacting our Sales Team.
Checkr is Privacy Shield certified. This means that Checkr has met the requirements of the Privacy Shield program administered by the United States Department of Commerce and is able to export data from the European Union to the United States of America.
