Compliance and regulations

At Simon we recognize that compliance is only one part of a bigger security program. We are committed to demonstrating our alignment with the industry and regulatory standards outlined below.

We recognize the need for independent verification of our security program at Simon. The standards that we align with are:


**SOC 2****SOC 2**


The SOC 2 standard is intended to guide companies that store and process customer data in a cloud environment. Simon Data has undergone a Type 2 audit against the SOC 2 standard, specifically, the security, confidentiality, and availability principles. To receive access to the report for record-keeping or your own vendor security purposes please get in touch with us at [email protected] or by reaching out to your Simon CSMCSM - Customer Solutions Manager.

Cloud Security Alliance Common Controls Matrix (CCM)

The CCM was developed as a benchmark for cloud providers of all types to use for compliance activities. It aligns with many regulatory standards such as HIPAA, PCI, NIST 800-53, and more. Simon goes through a monthly self-assessment against the CCM and uses it to set goals for continued improvement of its overall security program.
