Do you have customers that plan to audit you? Are customers asking about privacy? The SOC 2 privacy criteria are changing—and here’s what you need to know.


The privacy criteria were so complex and burdensome that users didn’t know where to start. ASEC’s changes strive to fix that by making them more practical for today’s business environment.

Changes to the SOC 2 privacy principle guidelines:

  • The SOC 2 criteria for privacy are changing, with the aim of becoming more user friendly and easy to manage.
  • The revised criteria are set to be published in the summer of 2016.
  • Organizations should consider getting ahead of the game by thinking about how ready they are to withstand the rigors of the audit.
