Service Organization Controls 2 (SOC 2)
SOC 2 - Service Organization Controls is a compliance standard that tests and demonstrates the cybersecurity hygiene of an organization. Established by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA), these five areas are evaluated in a SOC 2 examination.
Why You Need SOC 2
SOC 2 compliance helps demonstrate that your organization maintains a high level of information security. Organizations that implement SOC 2 compliance are less likely to suffer from data breaches or violate users’ privacy. Avoiding cyber breaches protects against reputational damage and regulatory action.
Who Needs SOC 2?
You need a SOC 2 report if you are a cloud service provider or store client information in the cloud. SOC 2 reports are a great way to identify how well client data is safeguarded by the organization and protected from unauthorized user access.
