Clearview AI Improves SOC 2 Certification, Certifying Privacy Controls alongside Security Controls

The SOC 2 Report validates Clearview AI’s Proficiency in Safeguarding Privacy, in addition to Data Security

NEW YORK, APRIL 16, 2024 – Clearview AI, the leading facial recognition search engine for  government agencies successfully completed its System and Organization Controls 2 (SOC 2) examination for compliance with the security and privacy Trust Services Criteria, certifying the company maintains effective privacy controls. This builds upon Clearview AI’s previous SOC 2 certification, certifying the company’s controls over the security of its clients’ data. The examination was conducted by Insight Assurance. 


SOC 2 is an auditing procedure conducted by licensed and regulated certified public accountants who rigorously inspect the controls implemented by data service providers to ensure that they adhere to their stated commitments regarding secure management and accurate processing of data. This protects the interests of the organization and the privacy of its clients by providing proof of responsible customer data management. Widely considered the highest standard of cybersecurity certification, SOC 2 is intended to safeguard a company’s interests and intellectual property when utilizing data service providers. 


“Clearview AI continues to achieve the highest level of third-party verifications for our data security, cybersecurity and internal security policies and procedures. This certification builds upon our previous successful SOC 2 audits, to show the highest standard for protecting the privacy of the data we hold.”
