SaaS Security - SOC 2 vs. ISO 27001 (Or Both)

What Every SaaS Firm Needs to Know

Why Even Go for “Provable Security”?

Software-as-a-service (SaaS) firms that serve many industries are often required to acquire/maintain independent validation of their security posture by key stakeholders:

  1. Boards and C-suites are demanding “provable security” to reduce business & compliance risk
  2. It’s growing increasingly challenging to close a contract unless you are provably secure to an extent that your customers are confident that leveraging your services is not increasing their risk posture. With Personal Information regulations increasing, provable Privacy is the next frontier.

The two “Gold Standards” for independent verification of your information security program are SOC 2 and ISO 27001

Which should you choose?
