Increasing concerns regarding information security have heightened scrutiny of service organizations’ control infrastructure and driven demand for attestation reports. As a result, the SOC 2 examination's popularity has increased dramatically since its inception in January 2010. The SOC 2’s operational and security centric scope and the Webtrust based control framework, allows for an attestation process that addresses critical security concerns that customers have regarding third party services.
