SOC Preassessments

Preparing to launch a SOC report can be a demanding endeavor for any organization, particularly for those venturing into it for the first time. It often requires significant time and resources, along with a level of expertise in risk mitigation and implementing controls that may catch some off guard.

Our team offers expert guidance to help you confidently navigate this process, ensuring your compliance efforts are on track so you can focus on your organization’s core priorities. Whether you’re gearing up for a SOC 1 or a SOC 2 audit, a readiness assessment can provide invaluable insights.

While the responsibility for controls lies with the organization itself, our assessment helps streamline the process by assisting in defining the necessary controls for your SOC report and identifying any areas that require remediation.

Here’s how the process unfolds:

Planning

Allocate ample time—typically three to five months before the examination period to prepare. This allows for the resolution of any control deficiencies beforehand.

Collaboration

Work closely with our professionals to identify, design, and document key processes. Through interviews with control owners, we gain an understanding of the essential processes and controls at your organization required for SOC reports

Mapping Controls

Identify controls that align with the required control objectives for SOC 1 or Trust Services Criteria for SOC 2 and SOC 3. We ensure that the identified controls provide adequate coverage to support objectives or trust services, while also pinpointing any gaps that may necessitate additional controls.

Remediation

Address any identified control deficiencies or gaps to ensure readiness for the SOC examination. Allowing time to implement can help set the organization up for a successful SOC examination.

With extensive experience across various industries—from SaaS and IaaS companies to financial institutions and beyond—our professionals bring a wealth of knowledge to the table. While specifics of the client’s final SOC examination are kept confidential, the AICPA provides a seal of approval for companies that successfully undergo examination, instilling confidence where needed while safeguarding sensitive information.
