Frequently Asked Questions About SOC 2
What is the difference between SOC 2 Type 1 and SOC 2 Type 2?
There are a few key differences. The main one is that a SOC 2 Type 1 report looks at the design of your systems and controls at a specific point in time. A SOC 2 Type 2 report looks at the design and operating effectiveness of your systems and controls over a period of time, typically between 4-12 months.
What tools does Drata integrate with?
Drata has more than 75 native integrations. From cloud infrastructure providers like AWS, Google Cloud, and Azure, to human resources platforms like Gusto, GoodHire, and Workday, to dev tools and ticketing such as Jira and Github.
We're not planning on getting SOC 2 yet. Why should I use Drata?
Your security posture matters. SOC 2 is just one way to prove the effectiveness of your security program, but having a real-time view of your security controls is invaluable for any business.
Drata is the most advanced continuous monitoring platform on the market to assess your security posture in real-time, every day. You can score your SOC 2 readiness here. Check out this Forbes piece written by our Co-Founder Troy Markowitz that discusses this further.
If I use Drata, will my auditor have access to all my data and results of control testing?
Drata only gives auditors access to what they need in order to streamline the audit engagement. In the Auditor View, you control the level of access your auditor receives. You also dictate the time period that access covers, and the framework so auditors are only seeing evidence and test results of your controls during that specific time window.
Do I still need an auditor if I use Drata?
Yes, auditors are an essential part of the process and provide independent third-party validation of compliance. We work with and through auditors to ensure a strong security posture. We streamline the process they have to go through to evaluate evidence.
If you do not already have an audit firm selected, Drata will introduce you to a firm that meets your needs and budget, and work closely with them throughout the entire process.
Why is the Auditor View important?
Drata was built alongside auditors to ensure you and the auditor have the best user experience. Today, most platforms enable an export of reports or access to the entire set of controls and data you have visibility into. While not every control is applicable to your environment, auditors can’t unsee the evidence you’ve collected, which is why it’s important to only display pertinent information in the Auditor-Only View.
