SOC2: Thorough Reports Critical to Cloud Service Provider Assurance

Jan 16, 2014
From the Advisory Institute

Cloud services are critical to companies' business operations and are now a key element of cost reduction. But even as organizations gain confidence in the security of cloud providers, challenges remain relating to security, availability, and confidentiality/privacy. Service Organization Control 2 (SOC2) reports can help address these challenges.

This paper discusses:

  • How SOC2 reports can help cloud service providers (CSPs) and their customers more efficiently address operational and compliance risks
  • The benefits of SOC2 reports from a customer's and a CSP's perspective
  • The importance of scrutinizing the SOC2 report
