SOC 2 Security

At Anecdote, we prioritize the security and privacy of the data that our valued customers entrust to us. We have meticulously designed our application with a multi-tiered security approach and maintain a steadfast commitment to secure development practices, augmented by comprehensive third-party assessments. While innovating and delivering cutting-edge features, we remain resolute in upholding stringent security standards to ensure your data's safety.

We understand that granting us access to your internal corporate data is a significant decision. To instill confidence, we have taken numerous steps to establish a robust security program that offers you the peace of mind you deserve. We safeguard each customer's data, ensuring its segregation from other customers' data. Furthermore, the same principles of access limitation apply to our own staff. At Anecdote, we uphold a strict policy: we never access your data without your awareness, and we strictly refrain from creating any form of meta-reporting that could be potentially resold. Our primary focus centers on delivering the value we promise, without compromise.

The services

We address information security and data privacy through a holistic integration of people, processes, and technology. To validate the effectiveness of our internal security controls, we have engaged an independent auditor to assess our compliance with a specialized framework tailored for software-as-a-service (SaaS) providers.

Anecdote proudly holds a SOC 2 Type 2 report, confirming our alignment with the SOC 2 SSAE 18 standard. This report encapsulates our approach to information security management, risk assessment, board oversight, and third-party risks, among other guiding principles.

Our commitment to compliance is further fortified by hosting our services on Amazon Web Services (AWS). AWS is a state-of-the-art data center equipped with innovative architectural and modern engineering approaches. These data centers have received validation for compliance against rigorous standards, regulations, and diverse frameworks. To delve deeper into AWS's compliance, you can explore here:

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), a comprehensive EU data privacy law in effect since May 25, 2018, has our unwavering attention. Anecdote operates as a data processor, supporting data controllers in fulfilling their GDPR obligations. We route direct inquiries from consumers and end-users to the respective data controllers for handling.

To align with GDPR, we establish Data Protection Agreements with relevant customers and third parties, ensuring robust processing and safeguards for EU personal data. Our standardized processes and technical capabilities aid our customers in responding to data subject requests. We meticulously select and monitor third-party vendor relationships with a risk-based approach.
