Compliance as a service (CaaS) is a combination of modern technologies, including cloud computing and artificial intelligence (AI). CaaS enables service organizations to comply with the requirements such as SOC 2 without expensive investment in computing hardware or services.
CaaS offloads much of the burdens of compliance to a managed service provider (MSP). The MSP is responsible for operation and availability of the CaaS solution, and for keeping it up to date as compliance requirements change. The commitments of the MSP are typically spelled out in a service level agreement (SLA).
You must ensure your chosen CaaS MSP is fully compliant with the focus of the offered service or services. The non-compliant business, not the MSP, is typically subject to levied penalties and fines.
It is equally vital that any chosen CaaS solution be as friendly to auditors as it is to its business users. This means the solution should deliver information about your environment and compliance posture in forms your auditor can use easily.
