SOC 2

At Rhymetec we make audits more efficient (and less of a hassle) by implementing technologies and controls to meet each SOC 2 criteria. We also provide compliance reports and automatic threat updates. 

 

I What is SOC 2?

SOC 2 is an auditing procedure that ensures your service providers securely manage your data to protect the interests of your organization and the privacy of its clients. For security-conscious businesses, SOC 2 compliance is a minimal requirement when considering a SaaS provider.  

 

SOC 2 defines criteria for managing customer data based on five “trust service principles”:

  • Security
  • Availability
  • Processing Integrity
  • Confidentiality
  • Privacy

 

SOC 2 reports are unique to each organization. This is because of specific business practices that each organization may use. Each designs its own controls to comply with one or more of the trust principles. These internal reports provide you with important information about how your service provider mangoes data.

 

There are two types of SOC reports:

  • SOC 1 Type I report is an attestation of controls at a service organization at a specific point in time,
  • SOC 1 Type II report is an attestation of controls at a service organization over a minimum six-month period.

Why It’s A Good Idea

Without SOC services, cyber-criminal attacks can remain hidden for a long time as some companies do not have skills to detect and respond to threats in a timely manner. SOC 2 certification will allow companies to have a better visibility on their environment, have skills, processes and continuous improved threat management.

At Rhymetec we take security seriously. SOC 2 certification demonstrates compliance and an important aspect for our clients is that they can trust that we have taken all necessary measures to protect the information processed in our service offering. In addition to our ISO 27001 certification the SOC 2 Type II report provides additional verification and detailed descriptions of the applied security controls in place at Rhymetec.
