Overview : SOC 2 Compliance

The 2013 AICPA SOC 2 Type 2 report provides a comprehensive audit of a service organization’s controls around the CIA triad (Confidentiality, Integrity, Availability) along with privacy. This independent verification strengthens our assurance that a vendor can be trusted to safeguard customer data according to these core security principles

Methodology

ISO 27001:2022 streamlines controls for a cloud-centric landscape

SOC 2 serves as a framework to ensure that all cloud-based technology and SaaS
firms establish controls and policies to safeguard client data privacy and security.
External auditors provide SOC 2 attestation. Implementation helps identify any
underlying irregularities in terms of the procedures and security controls necessary
for consumers to trust these firms.

Obtaining a SOC 2 Attestation

Obtaining a SOC 2 attestation requires an independent audit conducted by a
qualified Security and Assurance Services Provider (ASSP). There are two primary report types

SOC 2 Type 1 Report

A Point-in-Time Assessment of Control Design

A SOC 2 Type 1 report provides a snapshot assessment of a Cloud Service
Provider’s (CSP’s) control design against the SOC 2 Trust Service Criteria (TSC) at a specific point in time. This report verifies the existence of documented policies and procedures aligned with the TSC but doesn’t assess the operational effectiveness of those controls.

SOC 2 Type 2 Report

Evaluating Operational Effectiveness of Controls

A SOC 2 Type 2 report provides a more in-depth assessment compared to a Type 1
report. It goes beyond control design by evaluating the operational effectiveness of a Cloud Service Provider’s (CSP’s) implemented controls over a defined period. This ensures the controls are functioning as intended and effectively safeguarding customer data across the core principles of Security, Availability, Confidentiality, Integrity, and Privacy (SAPCIA).

Why do organization need it?

  • SOC 2 (System and Organization Controls 2) provides a framework for evaluating the operational effectiveness of controls that safeguard customer data within a cloud service provider’s (CSP’s) environment.
  • The independent nature of a SOC 2 audit, conducted by a qualified Security and Assurance Services Provider (ASSP), offers a higher level of assurance compared to internal assessments.

The Major Benefits of SOC 2

The SOC 2 compliance process itself drives the implementation of well defined and repeatable security controls.

A SOC 2 audit is a proactive measure that helps identify and address security
control gaps, ultimately reducing the risk of costly data breaches

A successful SOC 2 attestation serves as independent verification of an
organization’s security posture, specifically its controls for safeguarding
customer data across the CIA triad (Confidentiality, Integrity, and Availability) and Privacy (often referred to as SAPCIA)

The SOC 2 report offers a comprehensive assessment of an organization’s
security controls, internal control environment, and overall risk posture. This
valuable insight can be used to identify areas for improvement and make
data-driven security decisions.

Our Approach

Policy Drafting

SOC 2 outlines a control framework for protecting customer data based on five Trust Service Criteria: security, availability, processing integrity (mentioned twice in error, likely meant confidentiality), and privacy. To achieve SOC 2 attestation, organizations must implement and document information security practices, access controls, risk assessments, mitigation strategies, and relevant policies (incident response, etc.)

GAP Assessment

A SOC 2 Gap Assessment serves as a critical first step in the SOC 2 compliance journey. This assessment is a systematic process that compares an organization’s existing security controls and processes against the relevant Trust Service Criteria (TSC) within the SOC 2 framework. The objective is to identify control gaps and areas for improvement to ensure alignment with the SOC 2 requirements. This analysis equips organizations with actionable insights and a roadmap to remediate control deficiencies before undergoing a formal SOC 2 audit.

Implementation

These evaluations verify the implementation and effectiveness of documented information security controls. Identified gaps and control weaknesses are categorized by risk level, enabling the client to prioritize remediation efforts. This ongoing process fosters a culture of security and paves the way for achieving SOC 2 attestation, demonstrating a commitment to robust data protection.

Auditing and Training

Following successful implementation and control documentation, a SOC 2 audit assesses the design and operational effectiveness of your controls. Type 2 audits, preferred for a more robust posture, evaluate control effectiveness over a period (often a year) to demonstrate ongoing adherence. This comprehensive evaluation identifies areas for improvement and ultimately leads to SOC 2 attestation.

Attestation

The final stage involves completing the SOC 2 attestation process. This requires a deep dive into documentation to ensure completeness and alignment with control requirements. A qualified CPA then performs an independent audit, verifying control implementation and effectiveness. Successful completion leads to your company
being recognized as SOC 2 Type 1 or Type 2 compliant.

How long does it take to become SOC 2 certified?

Will we get a certificate after SOC 2 external audit?

Is it mandatory to get both SOC 2 Type 1 and Type 2 compliant simultaneously?

Phased SOC 2 approach: prioritize Type 1 attestation to establish control design, then build upon it for Type 2’s operational effectiveness evaluation.

Is there a statement of applicability in SOC 2 compliance?

SOC 2 utilizes RFI trackers, not SOA checklists, to map evidence against Trust
Service Criteria (TSC) for a more nuanced assessment of control effectiveness
