The intent of a SOC 2 report is to provide an understanding of the details of the processing and controls at a service organization, by testing the design of the controls and their operating effectiveness, with the goal of instilling confidence and gaining trust in that service organization’s systems.
A core requirement for SOC 2 reporting is that of developing a description of the service organizations system; that is, a detailed and comprehensive narrative that describes the services provided, along with the supporting processes, policies, procedures, personnel and operational activities that constitute the service organization's core activities that are relevant to user entities.
The design and operating controls for the Security and Availability Trust Service Principles were tested, and found to be suitably designed and operating effectively.
