CDC ARKHINEO becomes the sole French electronic archiving operator compliant with SOC, ISO 27001, NF461 and eIDAS standards

CDC ARKHINEO, the French leader in legal binding electronic archiving, has reached another key milestone in the field of digital qualified trust services by obtaining international SOC 2 and SOC 3 (type 2) reports.

CDC ARKHINEO is now the first and only certified third party archiver in France to comply with ISO 27001, NF461, eIDAS and now SOC standards.
 
Service Organization Controls (SOC) reports are the reference framework established by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA), the body governing statutory auditors in the US. They are required by American financial companies and also by companies of all nationalities listed in the US or involved in business activities requiring authorisation by the US administration (FDA, etc.). SOC 1, SOC 2 and SOC 3 reports attest to the efficiency of control measures provided by qualified trust services providers, such as CDC ARKHINEO, and cover the major principles of reliability, via a series of independent audits carried out by authorised AICPA registered firms, including security, confidentiality, integrity, availability and data protection. They are based on an assessment of key components including technical infrastructure, software, team/organisation, procedures and data.
 
Following this latest audit and certification, CDC ARKHINEO is stepping up its international ambition targeting major multinational groups. CDC ARKHINEO Commercial & Marketing Director Philippe DELAHAYE declares: “Obtaining these SOC reports confirms our leadership in electronic document retention & preservation trust services and will enable us to secure new global partnerships. These reports also contribute towards building a trust and transparency ecosystem with our stakeholders (prospective and current clients, resellers and partners). This is why we have opted for Type 2 reports which involve significantly more stringent tests than type 1”.
