SOC 2 Trust Services Criteria is a framework to ensure the privacy and security of customer and client data. It is applicable to all technology services, firms, and SaaS companies that store customer data. SOC 2 compliance is part of the American Institute of CPAs’ Service Organization Control reporting platform. The framework outlines five trust service principles of customer data: Security, Availability, Processing Integrity, Confidentiality, and Privacy.
SOC 2 allows you to adopt the practices and processes relevant to your objectives instead of a prescriptive list of controls, tools, and processes. Achieving SOC 2 certification assures your partners and customers that controls are in place to safeguard their data. The Risk Cloud Controls Repository allows your organization to download SOC 2 criteria and start assessing your program’s effectiveness immediately.
