Giftpack Accomplishes SoC 2 Certificate with Vanta
Since Giftpack AI was launched in summer 2020, one of the major concerns holding our team back from getting more client has been data privacy and security. We totally understand the concern considering that we are an artificial intelligence company, and the technology is still relatively new for many of the people.
In order to make sure we provide high standards in data privacy and security, we have been preparing for an application of the SOC 2 certificate. In plain English, a SOC2 audit ensures that the company stores customer’s data in a well-designed and secure place.
In 2021 Q4, Giftpack AI has successfully gained the SOC 2 Type 1 certificate with security company Vanta. To provide a more thoroughly secured service, we are aiming at getting SOC2 Type 2 certificate within the next 6 months in 2022, as the Type 2 certificate requires a 6-month monitoring evaluation process.
It is expected that before the end of 2022 Q2, Giftpack AI will have compliance with all SOC 2 Type 1 & Type 2, and GDPR regulations.

Celebrate the Lunar New Year Together
From 2020 to 2021, the number of team member at Giftpack AI dropped to 11 from around 30 teammates. The decision to downsize the team was made after thorough inspections and considerations.
Currently, we have more than half of the team members based in Asia, and most of us are from Taiwan, South Korea, and China. As we summarize the achievements and major updates of the last quarter in February 2022, we also took the opportunity of this special time of the year to celebrate the Lunar New Year together.
No matter where we are around the world, our team gathered together virtually on Zoom and shared how we spent the holiday. On behalf of the whole Giftpack AI team, we wish you a Happy New Year and great year to come!
