Should you get a SOC 2 or ISO 27001? We get that question all of the time.
The answer is simple…
A SOC 2 is an attestation report that a CPA firm evaluates for effective security controls.
ISO 27001 is a certification that says that an organization is following a set of cybersecurity standards.
Both have significant overlap. If your organization has received your SOC 2 or ISO 27001 then clearly you have done a lot of work on your cybersecurity program. Both evaluations focus on good processes such as managing access control, change control and many good technical controls.
