WHY YOUR TECHNOLOGY FIRM NEEDS A SOC 2 REPORT
SOC 2 demonstrates integrity, ethics and security
SOC 2 demonstrates that you, the “service organization” are SERIOUS about integrity, ethics and security.
The SOC 2 Report verifies that you have documented your internal controls for processing services, supporting your commitment to meeting regulations, standards, and a specific set of criteria as established by a widely recognized national trusted authority.
SOC 2 is gaining tremendous recognition in the world of regulatory compliance – and for good reason – as the common criteria control framework is an excellent tool for reporting on information security and operational controls within technology-oriented service organizations.
