SOC2 - Type1

SOC2 Logo

A Type 1 certification requires an examination of whether (1) a service organization’s description presents the system that was designed and implemented at a point in time per the description criteria and controls were suitably designed at a point in time to provide reasonable assurance that the service organization’s service commitments and system requirements were achieved based on the applicable trust services criteria if controls operated effectively.

Next is SOC 2 Type 2.  Most organizations have to focus on the long-term compliance strategy.  A Type2 examination addresses the description of the system and the suitability of the design of controls. Still, it includes a different subject matter, like whether controls operated effectively throughout the period to provide reasonable assurance that the service organization’s service commitments and system requirements were achieved based on the applicable trust services criteria.  A Type 2 assessment will come six months after the Type 1 assessment. 

Details on SOC1 and SOC2 are available on the AICPA Website.
