Achieving SOC 2 compliance can be a challenge.

Given the framework’s extensive principles and criteria for managing customer data and personal information, along with amplified external pressure today from stakeholders expecting compliance, where do you begin? What do you need a SOC 2 Internal Audit for? Who needs to be involved in the process? Which type of SOC 2 report is most relevant for your organization, Type I or Type II? What’s the most efficient way to go about implementing best practices? Are your organization’s controls sustainable to protect you against a data breach?

What Does Monitoring SOC 2 Compliance Require?

If you’re a data provider that stores or processes financial information, you’ll need to achieve SOC 2 compliance and ensure top levels of data security. But what does this entail?

SOC 2 ensures that a company’s information security measures are in line with the unique parameters of today’s cloud requirements. A SOC 2 report is considered a technical audit, but it goes beyond that to stipulate that companies must establish strict information security policies and procedures.

Trust Services Principles

There are five Trust Services Principles, or five trust service criteria, that comprise a SOC 2 report which are used for. The fiver trust service categories are:

  • Security Controls

    – the Trust Service principles must address how information is protected from security incidents.

  • Availability – the Trust Service principles must address how technology availability will be measured and assured.
  • Confidentiality – the Trust Service principles must address how the confidentiality of customer data will be measured and assured.
  • Privacy – the Trust Service principles must address privacy-related duties and responsibilities.
  • Processing Integrity – Processing integrity looks at how the Trust Service must address how Trust Services principles will be monitored and assured.

Unlike other customer data privacy requirements, SOC 2 requirements allow for more flexibility on the data provider’s side, which means SOC 2 reports are unique to each service organization. Essentially, the data provider can determine which requirements are relevant to their business practices and design their own controls to fit those requirements.
