Recently, we have noticed that clients of service organizations are asking for a “SOC” report in general, and not necessarily specifying which type of report they are looking for [i.e., SOC 1 (f. SSAE 16), SOC 2, or SOC 3].
Some of our clients occasionally ask us when it is a good idea to get a SOC 3 report. The answer for most companies is that a SOC 3 is not necessary.
On December 15, 2014, the new SOC 2 Common Criteria took effect. What does that mean for your SOC 2 audit?
