What Is An Attestation of Compliance?

Merchants and service providers use an Attestation of Compliance (AOC)  to document their compliance with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard, also known as PCI-DSS. Companies can determine their compliance via a Self-Assessment Questionnaire or a Report on Compliance prepared by an independent Qualified Security Assessor (QSA).

How Trustero Can Help

Like PCI-DSS, SOC 2 is designed to improve protection of proprietary and personal data. SOC 2 is built upon the System and Organization Controls (SOC) framework developed by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA). Five Trust Services Criteria (TSC) — Security, Availability, Processing Integrity, Confidentiality, and Privacy — are the foundation of that framework. Compliance requires commitment to controls, or policies, procedures, and processes, that meet the SOC 2 specifications. Protection of information systems, personal and proprietary information, and privacy are the goals of those specifications.

Trustero Compliance as a Service (CaaS) is cloud-based, easy-to-use compliance automation software. It speeds and simplifies SOC 2 audit readiness and enables continuous compliance.

For example, the Trustero solution constantly monitors your technology infrastructure. It can automatically notify administrators when an element falls out of SOC 2 compliance, and suggest effective remediation measures. Administrators can more quickly isolate and resolve problems that may threaten your efforts to complete an Attestation of Compliance.

Trustero CaaS also integrates with leading Software as a Service (SaaS) tools and platforms. In addition, the solution can generate regular and on-demand reports of your SOC 2 compliance posture. This helps you achieve and sustain continuous compliance. Trustero Compliance as a Service can enable continuous compliance with SOC 2 and complement and amplify your PCI-DSS compliance efforts.
