Frequently Asked Questions about SOC 2

​​This section covers a few of the most common questions companies have about using Skyflow to achieve and maintain SOC 2 compliance.
What is SOC 2?

SOC 2 (pronounced “sock two”) stands for “Service Organization Control 2”. It’s a set of compliance priorities and criteria created by the American Institute of CPAs (AICPA) to ensure that sensitive customer data is stored in the cloud in a secure and compliant manner.

SOC 2 is a commonly accepted security standard that demonstrates the maturity of vendors who achieve this certification across a range of criteria. The qualities and processes that SOC 2 auditors measure should be a priority for any organization that handles sensitive data.

There are five Trust Services Criteria assessed as part of SOC 2 certification:

  • Security
  • Availability
  • Confidentiality
  • Processing Integrity
  • Privacy

Of these, security is the only required criteria, and the most rigorous. Companies can choose which criteria they get certified in.

SOC 1 and SOC 2: How Do They Differ?

SOC 1 addresses internal controls relevant to its customers’ financial data, while SOC 2 addresses an organization’s internal controls relevant to the security, availability, processing integrity, confidentiality, and privacy of customer data.

What Is the Difference between SOC 2 Type 1 and Type 2 Certifications?

SOC 2 certification is divided into two different types: Type 1 and Type 2. Type 1 focuses on security controls at a specific point in time, whereas Type 2 involves a deeper look into repeatable processes and automation over a much longer period of time, typically around one year. Skyflow is Type 2 certified.

Does SOC 2 Apply to My Organization?

Many technology-based service organizations that store customer data in the cloud are expected to be SOC 2 compliant. Although SOC 2 is an industry standard, rather than a law or regulation, many companies require vendors and partners to achieve SOC 2 compliance before working together. Achieving SOC 2 compliance reassures current and potential customers, and showcases your company’s commitment to security and data privacy.

What Is the Difference Between SOC 2 and ISO 27001?

Both SOC 2 and ISO 27001 are standards governing precautions around information security, but they have a few subtle differences, one of which is location. ISO27001 is more common internationally than SOC 2, whereas SOC 2 is more prominent in the United States. Another difference is their scope.

ISO 27001 provides a framework for how organizations should manage their data and requires companies to prove that they have comprehensive information and security management in place. SOC 2 focuses more specifically on data security controls
