Article summary

System and Organization Controls (SOC) are a series of standards designed to help measure how well a service organization conducts and regulates its information. The SOC framework provides assurance regarding the controls at service organizations related to various aspects like security, privacy, and confidentiality.

Dataddo System and Organization Controls (SOC) reports are generated by independent third-party auditors. They provide detailed information on how Dataddo aligns with key compliance controls and objectives.


Dataddo is SOC 2 Security Type II certified. For information on how Dataddo implements controls to support data security, availability, confidentiality, and more, see our SOC 2 Security Type II report.

SOC Reporting Frameworks

SOC reports are essential tools that provide organizations and their stakeholders with assurance regarding the effectiveness and design of the controls relevant to the security, availability, and processing integrity of the systems the organization uses to process users' data, as well as the confidentiality and privacy of the information processed by these systems.

The SOC reporting framework was developed by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) and includes several types of reports:


SOC 1 reports focus on the controls at a service organization that may impact their clients' financial reporting. They are typically relevant for audits of financial statements where the service organization's services are relevant to internal controls over financial reporting.

SOC 1 reports are divided into Type I and Type II, where Type I reports on the suitability of the design of controls at a specific point in time, and Type II reports on the effectiveness of these controls over a period.


SOC 2 reports are designed to provide insights into the controls at a service organization based on the Trust Service Criteria. Like SOC 1, SOC 2 reports can be Type I or Type II.

  • Type I: Measures policies and procedures that are in place at a specific moment in time.
  • Type II: Measures the effectiveness of policies and procedures as operated over a specified time period, with a minimum of six months.


SOC 3 reports are a public-facing summary of the SOC 2 report and provides a general overview of the service organization's controls without the detailed and technical information contained in SOC 2 reports. It serves as a general assurance of compliance and security for stakeholders who do not require the detailed information in SOC 2 reports.
