SOC 2 Audit Reports

SOC 2 audit reports are designed for service providers storing customer data in the cloud. It applies to nearly every SaaS company, as well as any business that stores customer information in the cloud. These audits require companies to set and follow strict information security policies and procedures. A successful audit provides a report by a third party, verifying compliance. DIGIGUARD experts can advise and prepare your SMB for successful SOC 2 audits so that you can:

SOC 2 Type I and SOC 2 Type II

A SOC 2 Type I report attests to the design and documentation of a service provider’s controls and procedures as of a specific date or point in time. However, the Type I report does not cover the actual operation of the controls. A Type II report also provides the same evidence as Type I, but views operation over a period of six months or more for more continuous attestation. We may advise your business to begin with a Type I audit and move on to a Type II for subsequent audits. This starting point allows your business to focus on system description and gives you time to mature your system for subsequent audits. For both Type I and Type II audits, DIGIGUARD consultants will look at the following items:
