Why do I need a SOC 2 report?2023-03-10T14:16:43-08:00

Having a SOC 2 report communicates to your customers, your employees and other stakeholders that you have implemented a framework to protect them and their data. A successful audit is a critical step in building a future with customers.

What is a SOC 2 Report?2023-03-09T18:37:09-08:00

The System and Organization Control (SOC) 2 report was developed by the American Institute of CPAs (AICPA) to provide detailed information about the controls you have in place to protect the security, availability, and integrity of the systems you use to process customers’ data, as well as how you honor the confidentiality and protection of that data.
