Configure, Monitor, and Maintain SOC 2 Certification In Amazon Web Services
SOC 2 is a reporting framework that defines security criteria for managing client data, and is developed by the American Institute of CPAs (AICPA). Enterprise organizations, especially in regulated industries often utilize SOC 2 reports as a measure of security preparedness and validation for SaaS solutions and outside vendors. Companies may ask vendors for a current SOC 2 Type 1 or SOC 2 Type 2 report during procurement and security assessment.
Under the AWS cloud shared responsibility model, AWS is responsible for many of the physical compliance safeguards. It is up to the AWS cloud customer to implement administrative policies, set internal security controls and go through a SOC 2 audit with an independent third-party to receive SOC 2 Type II report.
SOC 2 requires that organizations set security policies and address safeguards including managing availability, creating data security controls and managing incident response. Dash enables teams to generate custom compliance policies based around on your organization’s needs, structure, and technologies. Policies are designed around Amazon Web Services and customized to streamline SOC 2 Type I and SOC 2 Type II reports.
Learn More About Administrative Policies
Dash establishes a set of SOC 2 internal controls based around your organization’s established policies and procedures. Security controls are built around individual AWS cloud services, best security practices, and the latest AICPA 2017 SOC 2 Trust Service Criteria (TSC) and aligned security controls. Organization can utilize Dash “click-to-fix” remediations to resolve compliance issues with one click and maintain technical security standards.
Learn More About Technical Controls
SOC 2 Type II requires service organizations to validate internal controls over a period of time, typically 6 to 12 months. Dash makes it easy to continuously monitor and maintain SOC 2 internal security controls across your AWS accounts. Dash detects SOC 2 compliance concerns in your cloud environment such as unencrypted EBS volumes, audit logging issues and S3 buckets that are open to the public, alerts your team, and provides steps for resolving issues before they become full-blown violations.
Learn More About Continuous Compliance Monitoring
Dash enables teams to build and implement compliance controls around SOC 2 Trust Service Criteria and streamline the process for preparing for SOC 2 audit and certification.
Dash enables teams to plan and implement internal controls in AWS and achieve SOC 2 certfication
Dash ComplyOps makes it simple for your team to identify SOC 2 security gaps across AWS and implement proper security controls.
Dash enables teams to create custom administrative policies mapped to the latest SOC 2 trust service criteria and enforce controls through continuous compliance monitoring.
Dash allows teams to:
Teams should collect all relevant documents, security evidence and agreements. Teams should consider gathering the following security evidence for assessment:
Dash automatically creates an inventory of SOC 2 security controls and collects all security evidence necessary for your SOC 2 audit.
Once your team has gone through the Dash SOC 2 readiness process, and has implemented all necessary security controls, your team can work with our established SOC 2 auditing partner to complete a SOC 2 audit.
Teams will work with the auditor to evaluate the effectiveness of internal controls and receive SOC 2 type 1 or SOC 2 type 2 report. Organizations can use this SOC 2 report as security validation to share with partners and clients.
Dash enables organizations to build a robust security plan and security controls for Amazon Web Services
Dash is deployed into your AWS Cloud account and allows teams to manage cloud services.
Dash can be used alongside the hundreds of AWS cloud services to rapidly build, manage and get-to-market.
