What is a SOC 2 Datacenter?
SOC 2, which stands for “System and Organization Controls,” is an auditing procedure that was developed by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA). It is specifically designed for service providers that store customer data in the cloud and it is used to ensure that the data center’s information security measures are up to standard.
A SOC 2 compliant data center is one that not only has well-defined policies, procedures, and practices in place, but one that also tests them over a long period of time. Testing is an important part of SOC 2 compliance because it confirms the secure nature and operation of a company and its cloud infrastructure, and this is essential for building trust with customers and clients.
