Snipp Interactive Completes SOC 2 Type 1 Certification, Reinforcing Its Commitment to Data Security

WASHINGTON, DC--(Marketwired - May 9, 2017) - Snipp Interactive Inc. ("Snipp" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:SPN)(OTCQX:SNIPF), a global provider of digital marketing promotions, rebates and loyalty solutions, today announced that it has successfully completed the Service Organization Control (SOC) 2 Type 1 audit. The audit affirms that Snipp Interactive's information security practices, policies, procedures, and operations meet the SOC 2 standards for security, availability, and confidentiality.

As companies increasingly use outside vendors to perform activities that are core to their business operations and strategy, there is need for more trust and transparency into cloud-based service providers' operations, processes, and results. Snipp's SOC 2 report verifies the existence of internal controls which have been designed and implemented to meet the requirements for the security principles set forth in the Trust Services Principles and Criteria for Security. It provides a thorough review of how Snipp's internal controls affect the security, availability, and processing integrity of the systems it uses to process users' data, and the confidentiality and privacy of the information processed by these systems. This independent validation of security controls is crucial for customers in highly regulated industries.

"Completing the SOC 2 Type 1 certification reinforces Snipp's ongoing commitment to the security, privacy, availability, and processing integrity of the Snipp platform," says Ritesh Bhavnani, Chief Technology Officer at Snipp. "We have and continue to run a number of programs across a vast number of industries and for large CPG companies whose relationships with their consumers is extremely important. Our clients can be confident that we are committed to and making every investment to establish and maintain the most stringent controls needed to ensure the highest level of security and compliance."

A copy of the SOC 2 audit certification is available to clients and prospective clients on demand.
