‘System and Organization Controls 2’ (SOC 2) is a component of the American Institute of CPAs (AICPA)’s service organisations control reporting framework. SOC 2 compliance aims to ensure that systems are based on the five trust principles defined in the Trust Services Criteria (2017) which set out to ensure security, availability, processing integrity, confidentiality and privacy of customer data. SOC 2 is both a technical audit and a requirement to which comprehensive information security policies and procedures be written and followed.
Alyne has recently rolled out SOC 2 out-of-the-box Control Set Template which help organisations become SOC 2 compliant though setting up relevant internal Controls. With its robust 625 Controls, this Control Set covers an exhaustive list of Control topics. Alyne’s SOC 2 template assists organisations to identify and establish internal Controls which help them to receive an official SOC 2 certification with ease.
In addition to the already existing Controls available in the Alyne Library (more than 1100+ controls covering a comprehensive list of topics), Alyne has also developed new Controls around Corporate Governance, Financial Reporting and Accounting and Business Strategy Process - which altogether create an in-depth coverage of Controls around SOC 2 compliance criteria.
Along with this Control Set definition, Alyne provides further capabilities such as Assessment creation on the go, risk report creation based on either single or multiple Assessment answers, risk management along with mitigation planning and incident tracking, as well as notifications and alerts. This functionality enhances an organisation’s ability to ensure that it is following the SOC 2 compliance criteria.
As with all Library Updates, the Control Set has been provided to existing and new Alyne customers alike. Contact our sales team at [email protected] to learn how Alyne can help your organisation, or schedule a meeting with an expert to experience Alyne’s full capabilities.
