SOC 2 Academy: How is Data Put Into Your System?

The processing integrity category asks whether or not a service organization’s processing services are provided in a complete, accurate, and timely manner. To demonstrate compliance with this category, organizations need to not only demonstrate that they perform their due diligence to ensure the quality of accuracy of the data they process, but they also need to show their auditors that they know how data is put into their system. Why? Because if organizations don’t know how data is being input into their system, critical mistakes could be missed, which could make the data incomplete and inaccurate and could seriously impact a client’s ability to use that data. Considering this, organizations who include the processing integrity category in their SOC 2 audit will need to demonstrate that they have policies and procedures in place that guide how they input data into their system.
