SOC Audits & Assessments

Here’s what the different types of SOC audits do for your organization:
SOC Readiness Assessment
Identifies any weaknesses in your control environment before an audit to give you time to remediate issues in advance.
Displays the controls at a service organization relevant to a user entity’s internal control over financial reporting. Generally used to satisfy Sarbanes-Oxley compliance requirements.
Reports on controls at a service organization relevant to security, availability, processing integrity, confidentiality or privacy. Provides comfort to your customers over selected controls.
Trust Services Report similar to SOC 2 but with less detail. Compliance allows you to publish a seal of compliance on your website.
For Cybersecurity
Provides a trusted opinion on a set of policies, processes and controls in place to prevent cyberattacks against industry best-practice benchmarks.
For Vendor Supply Chain
Applies your internal SOC standards to evaluate your vendors to give your stakeholders confidence in the control environment of your supply chain partners.
