Helping your business surmount that test is Compyl’s mission.

Why SOC 2 Matters

What is SOC 2 certification? In 2010, the Association of International Certified Professional Accountants released a standard outlining three categories of Service Organization Controls:

With its focus on data security, the SOC 2 standard empowered IT service providers to build confidence among customers and stand out from competitors. The stamp of approval from a respected accounting firm spurred many IT CEOs to learn how to get SOC 2 certification.

The Soc 2 Certification Process

To gain a SOC 2 certification, a business prepares a comprehensive report on its data security processes and then submits the document to an audit by an AICPA member firm. Inside the SOC 2 category, the AICPA outlines two types of reports:

Type 1

Type I reports provide a snapshot of a business’s control processes for a single moment.

Type 2

Type II reports cover the effectiveness of control efforts for a period ranging from one to 12 months. The AICPA recommends a monitoring period of at least six months, but many enterprises now monitor year-round.

Unsurprisingly, IT service customers prefer the more rigorous Type II reports. In its most recent rules release, the AICPA spells out five Trust Service Criteria that cover the full range of data security missions in the IT industry:


Preventing the deletion or corruption of stored data


Maintaining uptime for customers and data availability for authorized stakeholders

Processing Integrity

Verification procedures for data safety


Access policies for stakeholder data


Keeping customers’ sensitive information safe from unauthorized use

Every business must include the Security criterion in their SOC 2 report and may include any of the other four categories depending on their service model. Only a few elite and deep-pocketed enterprises undergo an audit for all five criteria.

SOC 2 audits last for weeks and involve hundreds of evidence requests. If the audit produces a clean bill of health, known in the accounting industry as an unqualified opinion, a business may market itself as a SOC 2 Type II vender.

Maintaining SOC 2 Compliance

For an IT vendor or software-as-a-service provider, a one-time successful SOC 2 audit will not suffice in today’s competitive environment. Annual SOC 2 audits have become routine.

SOC 2 status means more than a report and a badge for your website. Savvy customers have learned to spot any effort to game audits, and you can expect that prospective clients will scrutinize your audited report before signing on. While SOC 2 status can aid marketing, a business must maintain a relentless focus on the processes that earn and maintain the standard.

Meeting the Challenges of Growth

Scaling hikes the difficulty level for each successive SOC 2 audit. Every growing IT business will add employees, gain new customers and confront evolving security threats. Without robust processes, each of these challenges creates opportunities for security gaps. These lapses in turn trigger reputation damage, lost customers and even lawsuits. Stakes this high require a one-of-a-kind solution: Compyl.
