Best practice. That is how we all want to function. Especially in the areas of IT and security. But how do you demonstrate that you do that? For example, with a System and Organizations Controls 2 (SOC 2) report. With this report in hand, customers and potential customers can verify that you are doing everything in your power to meet modern standards for security, availability, processing integrity, confidentiality, and privacy. SOC 2 is therefore known as the “gold standard” for assessing internal controls of service providers.
The need for compliance can be driven by several factors, such as customer demand, the need to meet regulatory requirements or the desire to provide transparency to external parties regarding internal controls. This is often where ISO 27001 and SOC 2 come into the picture.
Therefore, you may be wondering which form of compliance is best for your organization and whether one is better than the other. We understand that this can be complex. When choosing SOC 2 or ISO 27001, it is always crucial that you understand the market in which you operate, the requirements of the customers involved and the legal requirements you must meet. Therefore, one is not better than the other by default.
To clarify the usefulness, need and (commercial) benefits of ISO 27001 and SOC 2, Crowe Peak is happy to meet with the organization personally. We will perform a quick scan regarding the needs and the existing security level. Then we can go through the entire journey with you. Whether you want to have a SOC report prepared or wait a little longer and take other measures.
