The SOC 2 (Service Organization Control 2) report is an examination of engagement performed by a service auditor in accordance with the predefined criteria in Trust Services Principles, Criteria and Illustrations, as well as the requirements and guidance in AT Section 101, Attest Engagements, of SSAEs (AICPA, Professional Standards, vol. 1). The intent of a SOC 2 report is to provide an understanding of the details of the processing and controls in-place 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 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 report proves the design and operating controls for the Security and Availability Trust Service Principles were tested, and found to be suitably designed and operating effectively.

Type II SSAE 16 SOC 1 (formerly known as SAS 70 International Type II) is issued by the Auditing Standards Board of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) to organizations that typically provide services to other organizations that involve transaction processing and the securing of data used to perform these services. An auditor's report details the ability for a service provider's ability to offer adequate controls and safeguards when they host or process data belonging to their customers.

CSAE 3416 Type 2 (formerly known as CICA 5970) is a Canadian standard administered by the Canadian Institute of Chartered Accountants. Designation under this program encompasses specific requirements for service providers managing customer data and focuses heavily in the areas of compliance, security and access. In addition, this certification addresses the topics of backup and recovery, computer operations and facility infrastructure.

The ISAE 3402 report is issued under International Standards for Assurance Engagements (ISAE) 3402. An auditor's report provides assurance that the service business is maintaining effective and efficient internal controls related to financial, information and security reporting. This examination and report is similar to and issued in conjunction with an SSAE 16 SOC 1 report.
