  • SOC Readiness engagements with the goal of ensuring your organization is adequately prepared for a SOC audit.  A readiness engagement is a consultative process that guides and prepares your organization for a SOC audit by helping you evaluate your organization’s system of controls and identify and address weaknesses, so you are well positioned for a successful SOC examination.
  • SOC Auditing engagements to independently assess your system of controls and to prepare and issue an independent and verifiable SOC report that can be distributed to your customers and their auditors, as required.


  • SOC 1 Report – Focuses on internal controls over financial reporting.
  • SOC 2 Report – Focuses on security, availability, processing integrity, confidentiality, and privacy for limited distribution to a service organization’s customers.
