What is SOC 2 compliance?

SOC 2 is an information security and data security compliance standard, developed by the American Institute of Chartered Public Accountants (AICPA), as an evolution of SOC 1. SOC 2 compliance is designed to provide a framework for the assessment of service organisations’ management of data. It’s designed for B2B vendors and SaaS companies to help them demonstrate to clients that they are protecting data correctly. Unlike a lot of other standards, there’s no certification: instead an AICPA-registered auditor produces a Type I or Type II report.

Why your organisation needs SOC 2 compliance

SOC 2 compliance is important as it demonstrates that your business has implemented appropriate controls to protect the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of data. The driver for SOC 2 compliance often comes from a customer requirement, but it can also be done independently of external factors to showcase a strong commitment to information security management.

Benefits of SOC 2 compliance

  • Boost customer confidence

    Win new business by demonstrating you take good care of customer data

  • Reduced risk of data breaches

    Protect against financial losses from data breaches with strong security

  • Improved internal controls

    Increase efficiency and effectiveness with better processes & controls

  • Better compliance integration

    SOC 2 compliance helps with ISO 27001, PCI DSS, HIPAA & FTC compliance

  • Increased brand reputation

    Enhance your brand’s reputation as a trustworthy, security-conscious company

  • Fast & affordable service

    Trusted, expert SOC 2 compliance can be affordable for all sizes of business

Type I and Type II SOC 2 compliance

There are two types of SOC 2 reports: Type I and Type II, and your customers often decide which type of SOC 2 report is required.

SOC 2 Type I

SOC 2 Type I

A Type I SOC 2 report is a point in time audit of your information security controls and their compliance with the chosen TSCs. A Type I assessment focusses on the design and implementation of controls, but it does not assess the effectiveness of those controls. A Type I SOC 2 audit is significantly cheaper and quicker than a Type II audit, but as a point in time test, it doesn’t reflect your security capability as well as a Type II test.

SOC 2 Type II

SOC 2 Type II

A Type II SOC 2 report is an extended assessment of your information security controls against the chosen TSCs over a period of time. Typically the timeframe for a Type II SOC 2 report is 3-6 months. As well as the design and implementation effectiveness, a Type II report also assesses the operating effectiveness of controls. A Type II report is a more involved process, but gives much greater scrutiny and assurance.

SOC 2 compliance FAQs

The cost of SOC 2 compliance is influenced by many variables, and primarily depends on your organisation’s security maturity, which TSCs are required, and the type of report (Type I or Type II) requested.

Here’s a full list of factors influencing the cost of SOC 2 compliance

  • How many of the 5 TSCs are required
  • If a Type I or Type II report is requested
  • The size of your organisation
  • Your security maturity – for example, if you already have ISO 27001 you’ll have a lot of policies and procedures already in place
  • How much resource you can dedicate to the project
  • The experience of your consultants and auditors

Bulletproof’s seasoned SOC 2 consultants leverage their insight and expertise to make the SOC 2 compliance process as simple – and affordable – as possible. In fact, we pride ourselves on offering a better SOC 2 compliance service and a better price that the ‘Big 4’ providers.

SOC 2 compliance is typically led by customer demand, or when an organisation is entering a new sector where SOC 2 compliance is seen as standard. SOC 2 compliance is not required by the letter of the law, but it is becoming increasingly common for businesses to seek SOC 2 compliance to demonstrate to customers, partners, and regulators that they have strong security controls in place to protect data.

At the core of SOC 2 compliance is five Trust Service Criteria (TSCs), covering:

  1. Security
  2. Availability
  3. Processing
  4. Integrity
  5. Confidentiality
  6. Privacy

As a data security framework, the Security TSC is mandatory and is often referred to as ‘common criteria’. However, the requirement to complete the other TSCs depends on the service offered and the requirements of your customers. This is where the expertise of SOC 2 consultants can be invaluable – their experience and knowledge of SOC 2 scoping can greatly speed up your SOC 2 compliance journey.

SOC 2 audits can only be performed by recognised CPA auditors. It’s recommended that the CPA auditor is someone external from both your organisations, and any organisation who helped you implement SOC 2 compliance. Bulletproof have partnered with experienced, trusted CPA auditors to verify the SOC 2 implementation work and produce the Type I and Type II reports.

SOC 2 reports come in two flavours: Type I and Type II. Type I SOC compliance is a snapshot of your business’ security controls at a specific point in time. Type II SOC compliance is a more comprehensive assessment of an organisation's security controls. It looks at the design, implementation, and operating effectiveness of controls over a period of time.

SOC 2 and ISO 27001 are both information security frameworks that aim to protect sensitive data. There’s significant overlap between the two standards and completing SOC 2 is around 40% of the work required for ISO 27001. For businesses with a global reach, or who already have one standard, this makes getting both SOC 2 and ISO 27001 a great time-saver.

SOC 2 is a US framework and is most commonly used by businesses in, or supplying services to, the United States. ISO 27001 on the other hand is an international standard. It’s valued and respected by businesses around the world. As a more in-depth standard, it is seen to give better assurance about your information security than SOC 2.
