Whether you're preparing for a SOC 2 Type 1 or SOC 2 Type 2 audit, it's critical to ensure you have the right policies, controls, and monitoring in place to stand up and strengthen your cybersecurity posture. Being strategic with how you approach SOC 2 will save your company valuable time and resources before, during, and after your audit experience - drastically reducing delays and unnecessary back-and-forth across your teams and with an auditing firm.

What exactly is a SOC 2 Report?
A System and Organization Controls (SOC) report is an attestation by a licensed CPA firm that your company has the appropriate information security policies and procedures in place to safeguard customer data. A SOC 2 report indicates whether or not your security controls will operate as intended to mitigate risk and if they meet the specific Trust Services Criteria (TSC) identified in the scope of the audit. These audit engagements are performed in accordance with Statement on Standards for Attestation Engagements (SSAE) No. 18. Audit firms work with Drata customers to streamline the evidence collection and reduce unnecessary friction in your audits.
