The current state of cybersecurity in 2023
A data breach can have devastating effects on the growth and success of your business, as sensitive information about your customers, employees, and partners will fall into the wrong hands, resulting in a tarnished brand reputation, not to mention financial penalties and lawsuits. Unfortunately, as a growing number of businesses migrate their legacy tools, data, and workflows from on-premise systems to the cloud, the number of data breaches increases as well.
Research shows that 77% of companies aren’t fully prepared to thwart cybercriminal activity, and 19% of data breaches are the result of a compromised partner. Moral of the story: Keep cybersecurity top of mind when employing third parties to build, manage, and optimize digital products for your business.
What is a SOC 2 audit?
A SOC 2 audit evaluates the risks associated with the handling and accessing of sensitive business data, such as names, addresses, login information, payment credentials, and so on. The audit also evaluates the practicality and efficiency of existing tools and procedures for managing such data—from access control, to system backups, to disaster relief.
This testing framework is based on the Trust Services Criteria, which covers data security, availability, processing integrity, confidentiality, and privacy. By successfully completing a SOC 2 examination, your technology partner is demonstrating that they follow rigorous cybersecurity standards—so you can sleep easier at night as your business’ digital transformation initiatives come to fruition.
