A Service Organization Controls (SOC) engagement, conducted by an independent CPA firm in accordance with attestation standards established by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) verifies the integrity of an external service provider’s internal controls.
But while your organization may ultimately benefit from undertaking a SOC engagement, it’s important to determine first whether you’re ready.
We will provide you with a comprehensive in-depth understanding of the AICPA standards in relation to SOC engagements. We also provide a series of questionnaires and templates that are customized to your business environment. These are essential in helping scope a SOC engagement along with identifying any gaps and weaknesses that will need to be remediated before the actual SOC engagement commences.
The CPAs and IT specialists of DeJoy, Knauf & Blood’s SOC Services Team take the time to get to know you and your business. By first determining your readiness for a SOC engagement, we can ensure you’re not moving prematurely.
We also help identify which type of report delivers the most value to meet your needs, and we assist you in determining which controls are most applicable.
