In today’s cloud-powered world, data reigns supreme. Protecting sensitive information, however, requires not just firewalls and passwords, but unwavering trust. Enter SOC 2, the Service Organization Controls framework that validates a company’s commitment to security, privacy, and integrity. But navigating the labyrinthine world of SOC 2, particularly Types 1 and 2 assessments, can be daunting. That’s where Joushen steps in, becoming your trusted guide on this journey to cloud confidence.
Demystifying the Maze: SOC 2 Types 1 and 2 Explained
SOC 2 comes in two flavors: Type 1 and Type 2. Both assess your internal controls relevant to security, availability, and confidentiality, but with distinct differences:
- Type 1: A point-in-time snapshot of your control design, ensuring they’re properly documented and in place. Think of it as your blueprint for security.
- Type 2: Goes beyond the blueprint, evaluating the effectiveness of your controls over a predefined period. It’s the operational audit, verifying your security practices actually function as intended.
