The Silicon Review
System and Organization Controls for Service Organizations 2 (SOC 2) compliance isn’t mandatory. No industry requires a SOC 2 report or is SOC 2 compliance law or regulation. But your service organization ought to consider investing in the technical audit required for a SOC 2 report. Not only do many companies expect SOC 2 compliance from their service providers, but having a SOC 2 report attesting to compliance confers added benefits, as well. Compliance with SOC 2 requirements indicates that an organization maintains a high level of information security. Strict compliance requirements (tested through on-site audits) can help ensure sensitive information is handled responsibly. Automation is a game-changer. SOC 2 software makes compliance simpler, faster, and more cost-effective. But critically, it also eliminates human error and helps you test your processes and adapt to problems as quickly and effectively as possible, reducing the chances of those audit exceptions to occur.

That’s something clients value. That’s why it is so important to lay the right compliance foundation from the start.
