SOC Reports – Minnesota

Minnesota business owners need to ensure sensitive data is protected, especially when it comes to personally identifiable information (PII).  Ensuring the company has robust internal controls and practices in place to protect against a breach is essential. In fact, many may expect to see a System Organization Control (SOC) Audit report before working with a provider. This examination verifies that the tools, processes, and procedures have been tested and are effective. Some may desire a SOC 1 audit, while others will obtain more value from a SOC 2 examination or SOC 3 audit. Whatever the desired level of assurance, it is important to work with an experienced provider to drive the process.

Minnesota SOC Audits

Barnes Dennig offers a number of SOC Audit services including:

  • SOC 1 Audits – The reports assure your clients that internal controls are secure. These audits focus on your organization’s business processes and IT controls. Any that are likely to be relevant to an audit of your customers’ financial statements are documented in the report. There are two types of SOC reports: Type 1 reports test the design of your organization’s controls. Type 2 reports test whether your controls are properly designed and implemented.
  • SOC 2 Audits – These reports concentrate on five Trust Services Principles: security, availability, processing integrity, confidentiality, and privacy. SOC 2’s requirements allow data providers to decide how they want to meet the criteria. This flexibility means SOC 2 reports are unique to each company.
  • SOC 3 Audits – Similar to SOC 2 reports in that they examine the same five Trust Services Principles, the results of the audit are publicly available.
  • SOC Readiness Assessments – These assessments provide an overview of your organization’s preparedness for a successful SOC 1, 2, 3, or Cybersecurity audit.
