What Is SOC 2 Compliance?

SOC 2 (System and Organization Controls) compliance is an auditing process that helps organizations ensure the security of their systems and data. Specifically, it focuses on the five trust principles of Security, Availability, Confidentiality, Processing Integrity, and Privacy. It also provides assurance that the organization meets industry standards for data security and privacy protection. The audit evaluates the controls in place to protect customer data stored in the organization's systems.
