As frequent readers of the Kogniz blog know, Kogniz LOVES tabletop exercises. Not only do they give employees and leadership a chance to practice emergency responses, but they also give a cross-functional team of employees the opportunity to work together to solve a problem. Because we know how critical frequent tabletop exercises are to a safe workplace, we are constantly looking for ways to make the process easier. We are excited to announce our integration with Drata, a compliance automation platform.
Drata Helps Put Security and Compliance on Autopilot
Many SaaS companies (including Kogniz!) use Drata to automate evidence collection and reporting for security compliance (SOC 2, HIPAA, GDPR, and PCI, for example). Basically, Drata does for security audits what Kogniz does for safety binders: provides a virtual repository of safety and security information, and gives companies an easy way to test their readiness posture.
Kogniz’s pre-built plan and tabletop exercise templates make it easy to create your company’s specific plans. Our tabletop exercise tool allows you to schedule and run tabletop exercises within the Kogniz platform. Then, you can quickly send a PDF of the After Action Report directly to Drata, where it automatically uploads to the appropriate controls.
Security and Compliance at Kogniz
As a safety and security-focused platform, Kogniz is committed to the highest security standards. Thus, we follow industry best practices related to secure software development and system availability, and all Kogniz employees and contractors complete annual security training and policy reviews. We know that our clients expect and deserve nothing less.
Kogniz is proud to be SOC 2 compliant, a designation granted to software companies with verified internal controls around security, availability, and processing integrity of the systems the company uses as a service organization. It also confirms the processing integrity of the systems that Kogniz uses to process users’ data and the confidentiality and privacy of the information processed by these systems. Kogniz went through the rigorous audit process to comply with the requirements dictated by the Trust Services Principles, providing an in-depth review of Kogniz’s internal controls.
Kogniz + Drata = A Dream Come True
As Kogniz went through the SOC 2 compliance process with Drata, we saw a huge opportunity to streamline the tabletop control evidence process. We know that security is critically important, and we understand that our clients deserve to have security built into the Kogniz platform. Our investment in a Drata integration assures our clients that we take a comprehensive approach to incorporating security into how we work together, our processes, the data, and the technologies we handle. Adding these new capabilities for our clients to work on their SOC compliance steps shows that we take our clients’ security seriously.
As Kogniz grows, we look forward to facilitating and automating our clients’ safety and security processes.
