SOC reports are a series of accounting standards launched by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) with three reporting options: SOC 1, SOC 2, and SOC 3. Management, regulators, and IT-related organizations will use SOC 2 reports to verify all data hosted in its Data Centers is protected in a safe and audited environment.

The SOC reports lend accreditation for management, regulators, stakeholders, and anyone seeking a trusted IT organization whose standards are up-to-date and reviewed by an outside third party. SOC 2 reports focus on five areas of control in a service organization: Security, Availability, Processing Integrity, Confidentiality, and Privacy. Corus360 and its employees are responsible for upholding the validity of all areas of control within Security and Availability.
