Wondering what to expect as you go through your first SOC 2 Audit? This post covers each step of the process. At every step, keep in mind that the entire goal of the SOC 2 audit is to measure how well your organization handles its business processes, users, data (proprietary, customer, etc.). A SOC 2 security audit can help your company demonstrate it has applied the best control mechanism to assure security, availability, processing integrity, confidentiality, and privacy of client data. This then generates trust and confidence from inquiring vendors and prospective customers.
