Welcome to our list of commonly used security and compliance terms.
What is SOC 2?
The Service Organization Control 2 Report (SOC 2) is an auditor report assessing controls for security and compliance. Any company offering a B2B service, along with any B2C company handling sensitive information, should think about getting a SOC 2 report completed.
A SOC 2 Type 1 proves that security and compliance controls are implemented at one point in time.
A SOC 2 Type 2 is more frequently requested by customers and partners because it proves substantial evidence of implementation over a longer period of time.
