Razorpay Becomes the First Indian FinTech to Receive the Coveted Data Security and Compliance Certification, 'System and Organisation Control 3'

Razorpay, India’s Leading Omnichannel Payments and Banking Platform for Businesses has announced that it has received one of the most sought-after data security and compliance recognitions – ‘System and Organisation Control 3 (SOC 3) Certification’. SOC 3 Compliance applies to any organization that stores sensitive customer data while processing online transactions, such as financial information, health records, or personally identifiable information. SOC 3 is a globally recognized and respected standard for managing and safeguarding sensitive customer data. Razorpay is the first fintech company in India to have achieved this compliance milestone.

In a country where the fintech adoption rate stands at 87% as against the global average of 64%, achieving the SOC 3 certification becomes a narrative of resilience, assurance, and market prominence in the dynamic fintech landscape. In the era of heightened cyber threats, this certification serves as a shield, managing risks and meeting customer expectations of robust data protection.
