Are you able to provide assurance to your customers and partners that their data is secure and private? As the demand for cloud-based solutions grows, so does demand for SOC 2 information security certifications. A SOC 2 report can help earn the trust of customers and offer a competitive advantage by providing peace of mind that your security controls are operating effectively and your business complies with their standards.

A SOC 2 audit evaluates an organization’s system and organizational controls based on the Trust Services Criteria, which are classified into five categories. Supplemental criteria categories or other security frameworks may be added to your compliance program based on your industry and the services your organization provides.

SOC 2 may seem like an overwhelming undertaking, but achieving compliance is possible. Get the SOC 2 Compliance Checklist to help prepare, which covers:

  1. Scoping considerations.
  2. Performing a self-assessment.
  3. Gap analysis and remediation.
  4. Final readiness assessment.

Obtaining a SOC 2 certification helps instill confidence in your clients that you have a mature information security program in place that protects their business’s data, privacy, and reputation.
