SOC 2 is a standard developed by the AICPA which specifies security protocols for data storage. In contrast to SOC 1, which focuses on the security of financial data, SOC 2 is required for all companies that store any proprietary customer data in the cloud, which is just about every SaaS provider. Achieving SOC 2 compliance is about more than just data encryption; it encompasses all procedures involving customer data including security, confidentiality, stability, access, and processing.
