Why do you need a SOC 2 audit?.
By undergoing a SOC 2 audit, you can ensure that your company is addressing the 5 Trust Service Principles:
This critera addresses how you physically and logically protect your system against unauthorized access.
Particularly relevant for companies that furnish colocation, hosting or data center services, this principle deals with whether your system is accessible to your authorized customers and is in accordance with any agreements you have made pertaining to it.
3. Processing Integrity
If your company handles sensitive Personally Identifiable Information (PII) or Personal Health Information (PHI), it is incumbent upon you to show how you use and protect these highly sensitive pieces of data as well as with whom you are allowed to share them.
Designed with e-commerce and financial services in mind, this standard addresses everything you do to transact data. It ensures that your systems are authorized, complete, timely and accurate.
In contracts you have signed with your customers, all parties have agreed to specific obligations in terms of how you keep stored data private. Furthermore, there are certain widely agreed-upon privacy principles that have been developed by the AICPA. This final trust criterion ensures that you are adhering to all of these standards.
