SOC refers to Service Organization Controls. These are comprised of a series of standards designed to help measure how well a given service organization controls its information. SOC 2 concerns the internal controls in place at the service organization. For a company to receive SOC 2 certification, it must have sufficient policies and strategies that satisfactorily protect the client’s data.
SOC 2 is designed for more advanced IT service providers. These can include IT managed service providers, cloud computing vendors, data centers, Software-as-a-Service companies and more.
