In alignment with the International Standard on Assurance Engagements (ISAE No. 3402), the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) developed the Service Organization Controls (SOC) reporting suite of services with three types of reports: SOC 1, SOC 2, and SOC 3. The SOC 2 report is intended to provide information about a service organization’s system relevant to select AICPA Trust Services Criteria (security, availability, processing integrity, confidentiality, or privacy), to enable report users to assess and address potential risks related to their relationship with that organization.
A SOC 2 report reflects a service auditor's attestation (opinion) regarding a service organization’s description of its system and the suitability of the design of its controls with respect to applicable Trust Services Criteria. A SOC 2 examination results in a report that provides a useful and standard way of understanding an organization’s oversight, corporate governance, supply chain management, and risk management processes. SOC 2 reports provide assurance to service organizations and users that system controls reasonably protect the confidentiality and privacy of user information processed by the system.
