What is SOC 2?

SOC 2 stands for Systems and Organization Controls 2. It’s a security framework developed by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) to help service organizations demonstrate their commitment to protecting customer data.

Why is SOC 2 important?

In today’s data-driven world, customers are increasingly concerned about the security of their information. A SOC 2 report can help build trust with your customers by showing them that you have strong security controls in place.

Here are some of the key benefits of SOC 2 compliance:

  • Stronger Security: The SOC 2 framework helps organizations establish best-in-class security practices.
  • Increased Customer Trust: A SOC 2 report demonstrates your commitment to data security and can give your customers peace of mind.
  • Competitive Advantage: SOC 2 compliance can differentiate you from your competitors and help you win new business.

Understanding SOC 2 Reports

There are two types of SOC 2 reports:

  • Type I: This report provides a snapshot of a company’s security controls at a specific point in time.
  • Type II: This report goes beyond Type I by assessing how effectively the controls operate over a period of time (typically 3-12 months).

Who Needs a SOC 2 Report?

Any service organization that stores, processes, or transmits customer data should consider obtaining a SOC 2 report. This includes companies like:

  • Software as a Service (SaaS) providers
  • Cloud storage providers
  • Managed service providers (MSPs)
