What is SOC 2 Compliance? 

SOC 2 is a set of auditing standards established by the American Institute of CPAs (AICPA) that focus on ensuring service organization's systems and data meet the required criteria for data protection. There are two types of SOC 2 audits:

Type I: The report outlines a vendor’s systems and whether their design is sufficient to meet relevant trust principles.

Type II: The report describes the operational effectiveness of those systems and includes a historical element that shows how controls were managed by a business over a minimum period of six months.

What Does SOC 2 Certification Require?

The SOC 2 certification is awarded to businesses by independent auditors upon assessing the extent to which they comply with the Trust Services Criteria (TSC), which are principles-based guidelines established by AICPA  that define the controls necessary for companies to achieve compliance. They include: 


This is the foundational criteria required in a SOC 2 assessment. It focuses on the protection of information and systems against unauthorized access. It tests if your customers’ information is protected at all times (collection, creation, use, processing, transmission, and storage) along with the systems that handle it.


This criteria addresses issues such as network performance, downtime, and security event handling, to name a few. The goal is to ensure your systems are secure and available
for customers to use when they expect to. This is important for startups that promise customers access to their data and your services at key times. 


Confidentiality addresses the handling and protection of information, personal or not, that you’ve agreed to designate confidential and secure for your clients. Primarily it governs proprietary information such as business plans, financial or transaction details, legal documents, etc.


The privacy criterion deals with the secure collecting, storing, and handling of personal information, like name, address, email, Social Security number, purchase history, criminal history, etc.

Processing Integrity

Focuses on processing errors and how long it takes to detect and fix them, as well as the incident-free storage and maintenance of data. It also makes sure that any system inputs and outputs are free from unauthorized assessor manipulation. The aim is to guarantee that your services are provided in a precise authorized, and timely manner.
