Santa’s on the way, and well… it looks like all you may be getting this year are “SOCs.” Oh boy. Well, at least it’s better than coal. All jokes aside, SOC reports can be confusing business.

So, now that you have one on your desk, how do you know what kind of SOC report it is? You’ll often see a SOC 1, SOC 2 or SOC 3. There are other SOC types, such as the SOC for Cybersecurity and SOC for Supply Chain, but those haven’t taken off yet, so they’ll be rare to see.
