SOC 2 Compliance + DLP

Learn more about SOC 2 compliance and how Nightfall helps with it.

Many companies seek to become SOC 2 compliant to showcase their strong security practices for safeguarding their company’s and their customer’s data.

During SOC 2 compliance audit periods, auditors review that security controls are in place, triggered, and responded to appropriately to assess the strength of an organization’s security posture. Auditors generally look for a number of controls, including the following:

  • Information security practices that are documented & managed on an ongoing basis

  • Data classification policies and protocols that detail the security and handling of customer data
