Our ability to walk down the street safely, buy food and know it won’t poison us, interact with a merchant, enter into relationships, build teams and invest in innovations are all built on an important foundation of trust systems.
Laws protect our streets, our product safety, our legal agreements and our intellectual property.
In the modern world, we leverage fantastically innovative technologies, SaaS services and cloud platforms that supercharge our productivity, allow us to work remote, transform our business workflows. But fundamentally for these businesses to succeed and scale, they rely on the trust of their customers that they will safeguard their data, adhere to privacy regulations and maintain a strong security posture.
Compliance standards and attestations like SOC 2, ISO27001, HIPAA and GDPR have arisen to help demonstrate trustworthiness in the cloud world, in a similar way to Better Business seals, electrical certifications and Consumer Reports have in the physical world.
When Kobalt.io works with clients, often the problem they have to solve is proving their trustworthiness to their customers. Our support in achieving compliance, monitoring against security risks and building out a strong security posture helps provide that trust and unlocks business growth. The business growth pays for the investment in security, creating a virtuous cycle.
This is one of the reasons we’re so excited to partner with Vanta. They get that compliance is all about trust – and they invest in tools like Trust Reports to make this easier to demonstrate. Their continuous compliance monitoring not only helps build trust with clients of their customers, but also internal teams that need to have confidence that they continue to follow best practices in securing their business.
If you need help securing your business, the trust of your clients and want expert support from a team that has supported over 250 companies, we’d love to hear from you.
