What is SOC 2?

SOC 2, or System and Organization Controls 2, is a framework governed by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA). It is designed to assess the controls and processes involved in storing, processing, and protecting customer data. SOC 2 reports focus on five Trust Services Criteria (TSC): Security, Availability, Processing Integrity, Confidentiality, and Privacy. Every SOC 2 report must cover Security, but organizations can choose to include additional criteria relevant to their operations.

SOC 2 Type II

A SOC 2 Type II report goes beyond evaluating the design and implementation of controls at a single point in time. It assesses the operating effectiveness of these controls over a defined period, typically three months to a year. Achieving SOC 2 Type II compliance means that PeerDB has not only designed appropriate security controls but also maintained their effectiveness over time.

The Journey to SOC 2 Compliance

Our path to SOC 2 compliance was meticulous and comprehensive. Here’s a look at the steps we took:

  1. Policy Crafting: Documenting all policies, procedures, and operational controls.

  2. Risk Assessment: Conducting thorough evaluations of our systems to identify and mitigate potential vulnerabilities.

  3. Vendor Management: Conducting thorough evaluations of our third-party vendors to ensure they meet our stringent security standards. We partnered with Advantage Partners, who served as our auditor, to ensure that all vendors were compliant with our security requirements.

  4. Evidence Gathering: Collecting extensive evidence to demonstrate compliance with required controls. We partnered with Vanta to streamline this process, leveraging their platform to automate evidence collection and monitoring.

Why SOC 2 Compliance Matters?

Achieving SOC 2 compliance is about more than just meeting regulatory requirements; it’s about building trust with our clients and partners. It underscores our commitment to maintaining the highest level of security and reliability.
