SOC 2 Type 1 report is an attestation of controls at a specific point in time. It states that your organization has met the security requirements during the first audit. SOC 2 Type 2 on the other hand attests that you’ve been consistently meeting the SOC 2 security requirements on a consistent basis for the previous 6 months to 1 year period.
What kind of organizations should go for SOC 2 Compliance?
Organizations that need a SOC 2 report include cloud service providers, SaaS providers, and organizations that store client information in the cloud. A SOC 2 report demonstrates that clients’ data is protected and kept private from unauthorized users.
How long does it take to become SOC 2 Certified?
Naturally, it depends on the maturity of your organization in following security processes and procedures. If you don’t have a process in place, it can be established and accomplished in approximately 6 months time.
