Data breaches are bad for business; even the possibility of one can scare away customers. As cybercrime damages mount, companies want third-party vendors that are at-risk for data breaches to prove they are properly protected by completing a Service Organization Control (SOC) 2 report. In verifying compliance with requirements related to vital concerns such as security, availability, processing integrity, confidentiality, and privacy, a SOC 2 audit provides the assurance that existing clients and prospective customers need. CyberGuard’s new guide details SOC 2 audits and explores how they can benefit companies. Features of the e-book include:

Definitions of SOC 2 reports and audits
Steps for scoping a SOC 2 audit
Advice for choosing an audit partner
Four SOC 2 compliance concerns
“Regulators continue to tighten cybersecurity compliance rules in order to protect companies and consumers from data breaches,” says Tim Roncevich, Partner at CyberGuard Compliance. “A SOC 2 report from an independent auditor shows clients that your systems are protected against data breaches and that their data is safe with your company. Our new e-book highlights how SOC 2 can help businesses protect their data and, more importantly, their clients’ data.”
