About SOC 2
The SOC 2 framework, which was developed by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA), addresses this requirement by evaluating an organization's information systems relevant to security, confidentiality, availability, processing integrity and/or privacy. Organizations that adopt the SOC 2 framework receive a Seal of Excellence from the AICPA once an independent CPA firm determines the organization has the appropriate SOC controls and procedures in place.
