Frequently Asked Questions

What is a SOC 2 report?

Service Organization Control 2 reports were designed by the AICPA to audit the existence and effectiveness of security, availability, processing integrity, confidentiality, and privacy controls at organizations. These reports are commonly used to assess and provide information and verify a third-party vendor’s data management processes.

Who can perform a SOC 2 audit?

A SOC 2 audit must be conducted by an independent, certified CPA firm. Carbide provides a customized information security program with policies, an implementation plan/checklist, and expert guidance to ensure your company is successfully prepared for your SOC 2 audit.

What are the SOC 2 requirements?

SOC 2 requirements are based on the 2017 Trust Services Criteria for Security, Availability, Processing Integrity, Confidentiality, and Privacy. These control criteria are included in the Carbide platform, integrated, and mapped to your customer policies, procedures, and implementation plan.

What is the difference between SOC 1 vs SOC 2 reports?

SOC 1 (Types 1 and 2) reports are focused on the processing of financial information. SOC 2 reports are specific to the security controls related to processing data. A SOC 2 Type 1 is a point-in-time report that evaluates and tests the design of your information security controls. A SOC 2 Type 2 report is completed over an extended period of time, to test the implementation and effectiveness of your information security program.

What is SOC 2 Type 2 certification?

First, there is no such thing as a SOC 2 certification. Proving SOC 2 Type 2 compliance is the result of an auditor’s report that verifies your company can securely manage and protect data during their operations and clients. This third-party attestation, including the auditor’s opinion about the effectiveness of the controls, provides assurance that a service provider is able to meet the Trust Services Criteria for data security.

Who does SOC 2 apply to?

SOC 2 reports may be used by service organizations to provide security assurance to clients during the sales process, meet compliance with regulatory requirements, or manage governance and risk management. SOC 2 has become a standard for B2B vendors and SaaS companies.
