SOC 2 is a technical audit, developed by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants’ (AICPA) – the national professional organization of CPAs. It sets guidelines for how companies — specifically companies that store user data on the cloud — should manage customer information. The audit procedure was created to help businesses ensure they are “handling customer data securely and in a manner that protects your organization and the privacy of your customers.” The audit focuses on controls companies put in place in regards to five Trust Services Criteria (TSC): Security Availability Processing integrity Confidentiality Privacy By reaching and maintaining SOC 2 compliance, a company is deemed to handle their customers’ data responsibly. Additionally, Mesh received a SOC 2 Type II report, which is a more robust audit that examines a business’s security measures over time. What Does that Mean for Mesh Payments Customers?

It ensures that we follow and enforce a framework of best practices required to keep all data in our software safe and secure and that we implement and enforce continuous ongoing measures to prevent any possible data breaches to the very best of our ability.
