SOC 2 Certification - What “Certified” Really Means
Regardless of what you technically call the SOC 2 reporting standard – “certification, compliance, certified” – it all comes down to essentially the same theme – testing and validating a wide array of processes and procedures for today’s technology driven service organizations. It’s thus important to note that many service organizations (i.e., businesses undertaking an actual SOC 2 assessment) require moderate to extensive remediation efforts – those often focused around documentation pertaining to information security procedures, and other related processes. Service organizations are obviously very good at what they do – or they wouldn’t be in businesses – but often fall short on the extensive documentation needed for becoming SOC 2 compliant.

With phrases such as “Trust Services Principles (TSP), common criteria (CC), description of the system” – and more – being thrown around in the world of SOC 2 compliance, it’s important to gain a strong understanding of the technical merits of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) Service Organization Control (SOC) reporting platform, which consist of the following:
- SOC 1
- SOC 2
- SOC 3
For simply clarity, remember that SSAE 16 SOC 1 audits are generally performed on service organizations conducing activities that could impact their clients financial statements. As for SOC 2 and SOC 3, technology companies have aggressively adopted this specific reporting standard, due in large part to the applicability of the five Trust Services Principles (TSP) of Security, Availability, Processing Integrity, and Confidentiality.

- SOC 2 audit reports are an important element of the AICPA Service Organization Control (SOC) reporting framework.
- Organizations can opt for a SOC 2 Type 1 or a SOC 2 Type 2 report.
