What is SOC 2 Type 1
SOC (Service Organization Control) 2 is a standard designed by the AICP that evaluates the effectiveness of an organisation's controls relevant to Security, Availability, Processing Integrity, Confidentiality or Privacy.
As part of the examination, organizations must also demonstrate that they have implemented appropriate controls to protect their information systems from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure.
