You need a SOC report, but wonder if you have the proper controls in place. Wouldn’t it be nice if you knew this before your examination? Well, you can. A SOC readiness assessment will help you identify gaps in controls and provide advice on how to close them.

After gaining a greater understanding of your operations and processes, we’ll determine the appropriate control objectives. We’ll research your existing documentation, determine testing necessary to verify control effectiveness and conduct a “dry run.” This is a preliminary test that will let you know whether or not you are ready for a SOC examination. Most organizations will need to firm up some controls before the actual examination period. We’ll work with you to make sure the proper steps are taken so you’ll be ready when the actual engagement begins.

SOC Readiness Assessment Experience: Our team of auditors has guided many companies through the SOC reporting process by helping them understand key controls to have in place and testing the effectiveness of policies and procedures.
