SOC Type 2 Audit Compliance

1What is SOC 2?

Increasingly, businesses outsource basic functions such as data storage and access to applications to cloud service providers (CSPs) and other service organizations. In response, the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) has developed the Service Organization Controls (SOC) framework, a standard for controls that safeguard the confidentiality and privacy of information stored and processed in the cloud. This aligns with the International Standard on Assurance Engagements (ISAE), the reporting standard for international service organizations.

A SOC 2 audit gauges the effectiveness of a CSP's system based on the AICPA Trust Service Principles and Criteria. An Attest Engagement under Attestation Standards (AT) Section 101 is the basis of SOC 2 and SOC 3 reports.

2Frequently Asked Questions
  1. Microsoft covered cloud services are audited at least annually against the SOC reporting framework by independent third-party auditors. The audit for Microsoft cloud services covers controls for data security, availability, processing integrity, and confidentiality as applicable to in-scope trust principles for each service.

    Microsoft has achieved SOC 1 Type 2, SOC 2 Type 2, and SOC 3 reports. In general, the availability of SOC 1 and SOC 2 reports is restricted to customers who have signed nondisclosure agreements with Microsoft; the SOC 3 report is publicly available.

  2. Microsoft in-scope cloud services

  3. Do I need to conduct my own audit of Microsoft datacenters?

    No. Microsoft shares the independent audit reports and certifications with customers so that they can verify Microsoft compliance with its security commitments.

  4. Can I use Microsoft's compliance in my organization's certification process?

    Yes. When you migrate your applications and data to covered Microsoft cloud services, you can build on the audits and certifications that Microsoft holds. The independent reports attest to the effectiveness of controls that Microsoft has implemented to help maintain the security and privacy of your data.

Frequently Asked Questions

1What's the difference between public, private, and hybrid cloud?
A public cloud is when the services and infrastructure are provided offsite over the internet. A private cloud is when the services are maintained on a private network, and a hybrid cloud includes a variety of public and private options.
2How do I know which type of cloud computing is right for me?
Before you choose which type of cloud computing is best for you, it’s best to understand the differences between the three types of cloud computing: private, public, and hybrid. Aside from that, you must also evaluate your business needs. The public cloud is low in cost, the private cloud has greater performance, security, and flexibility, while the hybrid cloud has the best of both worlds.
3What are the benefits of cloud computing?
Cloud computing is secure, cost efficient, has unlimited storage capacity, automatic software integration, easy access to information, quick deployment, and it has never been easier to backup and recover your data.
4Why should i choose Microsoft Cloud in comparison to Google and Amazon?
Microsoft Office 365 centralizes data to a specific region. Google decentralizes data so you cannot know where it is stored. Microsoft Azure integrates with existing Microsoft Systems and Management tools, Amazon has its own management tools that may not be familiar to many people. Management Portals are also more familiar and Microsoft provides intuitive interfaces which make Azure services easier to consume.
5Is the cloud secure?
Year after year cloud computing users continue to increase and for good reason. More companies are moving to the cloud because it’s affordable, scalable, and secure. Your data is safer in the cloud because it is managed by experts, requires controlled access, and most importantly 80% of Fortune 500 companies trust Microsoft Azure. The Cloud is suited to your needs, so you’ll have the same safeguards as the Fortune 500 companies.
6How do I get started with the cloud?
Let us help you define your cloud goals and show you how you can save as much as 50% on your IT costs. Our Microsoft Azure Cloud specialists at 360 Visibility can ensure you don’t make critical mistakes when moving your business to the Azure Cloud.
7Do you offer any training for the cloud?
As a Microsoft Cloud customer, we provide complimentary workshops tailored to you, to ramp up your staff on using Azure and Office 365 for your business.
