Frequently Asked Questions about Drata for Startups
What is automated continuous compliance?
In the past, organizations relied on manual evidence collection that required a significant time investment and distraction to critical team members. For frameworks like SOC 2, this would also occur annually and only provide a snapshot of your security posture.
Through automated continuous compliance monitoring, once you map your controls and integrate related systems into Drata, you gain daily visibility into your security posture, risks, and evidence required for most compliance and data privacy processes.
If I collect evidence for SOC 2, how easy is it applied to another framework like ISO 27001?
Drata was designed to help companies like yours kickstart, scale, and optimize your compliance journey. Any work you do for one framework is easily applied to additional frameworks with minimal added work on your part. This includes being able to map custom controls that may fall outside of the typical scope for control monitoring.
What kinds of startups and businesses do you work with?
What is the typical pricing for SOC 2 Type 1 audit?
Typical estimates for a small to midsize company range from $7,500 to $15,000 for the audit alone. However, for larger businesses, this cost could be anywhere between $20,000 and $60,000. It depends on a lot of factors unique to your business and audit, such as how many Trust Services Criteria you pursue (if you're doing SOC 2). Drata leverages its audit alliance to match customers with an auditor that fits their needs.
What is the typical pricing for SOC 2 Type 2?
The audit alone for a small to midsize company for SOC 2 Type 2 reports costs an average of $12,000 to $20,000. For large organizations, total costs can range from $30,000 to $100,000. Additional factors apply.
My startup hasn't been asked for a SOC 2 report yet. Why should I prioritize?
In today's connected world, SOC 2 is a way to prove to companies and customers that your company takes security seriously. In fact, it's morphed into something that's no longer a nice to have, but a need to have. Aside from prioritizing security, SOC 2 enables you to sell to larger customers. It helps you create a culture of security from the start, and set your company up for inevitable scale. Our Co-founder & Drata's in-house auditing pro wrote more about this topic in Forbes.
We're done with SOC 2. What's next?
SOC 2 is never a one and done process. Whether it's Type 1 or Type 2, this is where the value of continuous control monitoring (powered by Drata's 75+ integrations) kicks in. One of the values of using Drata compared to other platforms is the cross-mapping of controls. As your company scales, you may need to pursue GDPR, ISO 27001, NIST frameworks such as NIST 800-53 and more.
