The term cybersecurity did not exist forty years ago, but it is a very important part of society today. But what exactly is cybersecurity?
The SOC for Cybersecurity standard, issued by the AICPA, requires the implementation and maintenance of a cybersecurity risk management program.
Organizations increasingly outsource processes or data to service providers. Processes that have no relation to financial processes are relevant for SOC 2 reporting. A SOC 2 report is an internal control report that focuses on controls at a service provider relevant to Security, Availability, Processing Integrity, and privacy. A SOC 2 report ensures that a service organization keeps data private and secure while processing, and that data is accessible at any time.
