What Are SOC Reports?

SOC reports provide a detailed record of the results of compliance audits. Those audits evaluate compliance with the System and Organization Controls (SOC) requirements defined by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA).

Specifically, SOC reports assess the controls, or policies, procedures, and processes an organization uses to achieve and sustain compliance with sets of SOC recommendations. Those reports basically verify that an organization is using best practices for customer data protection as defined by the SOC specifications.

There are multiple types of SOC reports, each with its own purpose and requirements. Click on any specific title to learn more.
