SOC (Service and Organization Controls) 2 Certification

Businesses that have embraced the cloud are most concerned about their controls around customer data, as well as who in the company can view the data and administer a cloud service, according to Bitglass Chief Technology Officer Anurag Kahol.

The SOC 2 certification puts stringent controls on customer data, Kahol said, requiring companies to define the boundaries around their cloud and record who in the organization has access to what customer data. SOC 2 specifically puts lots of controls in place for cloud administrator best practices, which Kahol said helps protects consumers from misuse of their data or breaches in confidentiality.

SOC 2 is focused primarily around tight administrative policies, and Kahol said the thorough controls help organizations get their cloud security posture where it needs to be.
