COMPLIANCE AND AUDIT
A systematic evaluation of an organization’s cybersecurity policies, procedures and their effectiveness. A cybersecurity audit focuses on security standards, guidelines and procedures and the implementation of the related controls.
SOC 2 REPORTS
What is a SOC 2 report? If you are a service provider who stores or accesses customer data, your customers may already be asking you for this. Under the guidelines of the AICPA, SOC 2 goes beyond a technical audit and ensures that your organization has established and follows strict information security policies and procedures, around the security, availability, processing, integrity, and/or confidentiality of your customers’ data.
There are two types of SOC 2 reports; Type 1 and Type 2.
A SOC 2 Type 1 examination is performed to show your customers the fairness of your system and the suitability of the design of your controls as of a specific date.
A SOC 2 Type 2 covers a period of time and reports on the fairness of presentation of your system and the suitability of the design and operating effectiveness of controls. The result is a restricted use report to be used only by customers and other third-parties familiar with your system.
