SOC 2 Compliance Guide

Introducing the only guide you’ll need to get you started on your SOC 2 compliance journey—Start-to-Finish Guide on SOC 2 Compliance. This guide was put together by a 10-year auditor, Troy Fine, and cybersecurity risk management expert, Richard Stevenson, among other Drata experts who have helped thousands of customers achieve SOC 2 compliance. 

In this guide, our experts break down what SOC 2 is and the process to achieve it. Specifically, that SOC 2 is an attestation (not a certification) where a third-party accredited auditor will validate how you're securing data and information. From there, we’ll take a look inside a SOC 2 report and break down the differences between Type 1 and Type 2, and who may ask for them.

Beyond the basics, Troy and Rick will then walk through what can be expected budget-wise, and how everything from your scope and technology impacts the final amount. And lastly, the guide offers guidance on how to prepare for the SOC 2 audit, areas where you can streamline the process through continuous compliance, and some best practices to get you started on the right path.
