SOC 2 Service Organization Control (SOC) reports are independent, third-party reports issued by assessors certified by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) to address the risk associated with an outsourced service. The AICPA has established Trust Services Criteria (TSC) for security, availability, processing integrity, confidentiality and privacy, against which service organizations may be assessed. IBM Security Verify completes this audit annually. Clients can request a copy of this audit through their account team. Learn more about SOC 2 reports

SOC 3 A SOC 3 report evaluates the internal controls that an organization has put in place to protect customer-owned data and provides details about the nature of those internal controls. It has the same focus as the SOC 2 report, but it does not include confidential information or reveal details about internal controls. SOC 3 reports can be distributed publicly and are intended for users who don't need the specificity of the SOC 2 report. Learn more about SOC 3 reports
