As part of this commitment, we are excited to announce that we’ve successfully completed our SOC 2 report.
What is a SOC 2 report?
A SOC 2 report is a set of standards outlined by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants that primarily addresses risks associated with the handling and access of data. Rather than a cybersecurity assessment that evaluates specific technical configurations, a SOC 2 report focuses more on how an organization implements and manages controls to mitigate the identified risks to the different parts of an organization.
The SOC 2 audit testing framework is based off of the Trust Services Criteria (TSC), which are used to identify various risks (points of focus) an organization should consider addressing. Based on the TSCs the organization selects to be in-scope, the third-party compliance and audit firm (in our case, A-LIGN) evaluates whether the organization has the appropriate policies, procedures and controls in place to manage the identified risks effectively.
In order to pass a SOC 2 examination and receive a letter of attestation successfully, it means an organization is addressing controls in areas such as information security, access control, vendor management, system backup, business continuity and disaster relief, and more.
Our SOC 2 Report is just one of many ways Becht strives to turn your problems into peace of mind. If you are a current or prospective Becht customer and wish to view the full report, you can request a copy from your Becht account representative.
