WHAT IS SOC 2 AND WHO NEEDS IT?
SOC stands for “System and Operations Controls.” The SOC regulations and certification standards were developed by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) to regulate the security of service organizations, such as software vendors, that store or process customer data. SOC-certified companies must maintain annual audits, ongoing training, development and implementation of enhanced security measures, and frequent testing of their processes to ensure they protect their customers’ data.
Larger and more security-conscious organizations require their software vendors to be SOC 2 compliant to ensure that customer data is managed and secured using the most robust and exacting processes available.
TYPE 1 VERSUS TYPE 2 CERTIFICATION
A type 1 SOC audit evaluates and reports on the design of controls and procedures put in place as of a single point of time. A type 2 SOC audit takes the process described above a step further and provides a service organization with an opportunity to report on its controls’ operating effectiveness over a period of time.
Certemy is certified for the more rigorous and demanding Type 2 standard.
