Assurance (SOC) Readiness Services

How prepared is your company for a SOC audit? Organisations who provide an information-related service are increasingly being asked by their customers or regulators to provide a Service Organisation Controls  (SOC)  report as evidence that their security and privacy controls are robust.

SOC reports provide an opinion by an independent auditor on the controls at your organisation. There are different types of SOC reports, and often controls are assessed against an external set of criteria such as the  American Institute of Certified Public Accountants  (AICPA)  Trust Services Criteria, which covers common security controls, confidentiality, availability, processing integrity, and/or privacy.  

CyberCX understands the complex assurance process and its requirements and can help you prepare your stakeholders and control environment. Sometimes significant remediation is required to have the best chance of receiving a positive opinion in a SOC engagement, and CyberCX has a wide range of services to support you with remediation.
