Understanding the Concepts of SOC2 Compliance Framework
SOC2 or you can say Service Organization Control type 2 is a framework that is widely recognized at a global level, especially when it comes to mobile or software development services. SOC Reports is a framework that is specifically designed by the American Institutes of Certified Public Accountants, AICPA for accessing and auditing the security mechanisms associated with your business’s solutions, to maintain the integrity, confidentiality, and privacy of any organization. It also delivers complete assurance to your client partners and stakeholders about the maintenance and monitoring of security mechanisms, building the brand’s trust.
SOC 2’s Basic Principles
SOC Reports version 2 specifically works on five major principles that are implemented according to the industry-specific solutions for effectively maintaining the security of business solutions.
To prevent your business’s mobile app solutions from unauthorized access SOC version 2’s security principle is essential. As it helps businesses effectively manage the access control lists, strengthening the overall security levels through multi-factor authentication mechanisms.
Maintaining the data’s confidentiality can be assured only when a specific group of people can access the same. This data involves sensitive information like the app’s source code, usernames, passwords, payment information such as credit card details, and many others. The confidentiality principle ensures the limited accessibility of data to only a specific group of users.
This SOC 2 principle makes sure that the business’s solutions and infrastructure should meet the service level agreements at any point in time. Ensuring the creation of such systems that are fault-tolerant mobile apps that even remain stable during heavier data loads.
It ensures that the data that is utilized, stored, processed, and disclosed by your businesses should adhere to the particular policy and privacy guidelines along with the defined standards of AICPA. This principle ensures that businesses must enforce strict measures to control, manage, and protect client’s personal and confidential details.
It ensures the structured functioning of any solutions according to its defined structure. Avoiding all the functioning delays, vulnerabilities, and other issues like errors or bugs. This principle analyzes and monitors the solution’s overall working performance.
