Type 2 defines Testing and reporting over the design and operating effectiveness of internal controls over a period. Aspire has chosen 1 year period for this testing. It defines criteria for managing customer data based on 5 “trust service principles”—Security, Availability, Processing Integrity, Confidentiality and Privacy and Aspire is certified for SOC 2 type 2 for all the 5 trust principles namely Security, Availability, Confidentially, Processing Integrity and Privacy.
