Texas’ Leading Provider of SOC 2 Audits - Austin, Dallas, Houston
SOC 2 Services offered for Houston, Texas businesses include the following:
SOC 2 Scoping & Readiness Assessments: Before Houston businesses can even begin to think about earning coveted SOC 2 compliance, it’s important to note that a SOC 2 Scoping & Readiness Assessment is essential on the front end. When performed correctly, a SOC 2 Scoping & Readiness assessment helps define scope, identify control gaps & weaknesses, and much more. It’s an essential part of any SOC 2 audit, and NDB offers such services at fixed fees.
SOC 2 Remediation Services: NDB offers a wide-range of remediation services for helping Houston businesses become – and stay – SOC 2 compliant. Along with offering industry leading policy templates for much-needed information security policies for SOC 2 compliance, we also offer technical and operational remediation. Specifically, we can help in identifying, sourcing, and implementing various security tools and solutions for SOC 2 compliance.
SOC 2 Type 1 Assessments: NDB offers SOC 2 Type 1 assessments, which are essentially audit reports performed for a specific date in time. Type 1 assessments are a great stepping-stone towards Type 2 audits, which have a defined test period, generally six months, but they can be longer
SOC 2 Type 2 Assessments: NDB also offers SOC 2 Type 2 assessments, which are essentially the “gold standard” when it comes to assessing internal controls for service organizations. As perhaps the most widely recognized audit/attest service in North America, NDB offers these services at fixed-fees. Additionally, we provide a host of complimentary tools and solutions also, ranging from policy templates to security awareness training programs, and so much more.
Continuous Monitoring: Once the SOC 2 audit is complete, service organizations will need to spend time monitoring their controls for continuous compliance. That can take time, but NDB can assist, so contact us today to learn more.
Along with SOC 2 services, NDB also offers the following services and solutions for Houston, Texas businesses:
SOC 1 SSAE 18 Scoping & Readiness Assessments: Much like SOC 2 assessments, the best course of action to begin a SOC 1 SSAE 18 is with an actual scoping & readiness assessment. While many of the scoping & readiness activities for a SOC 1 audit are similar to that of a SOC 2 audit, there are some differences.
SOC 1 SSAE 18 Remediation Services: And much like SOC 2 audits, SOC 1 SSAE 18 audits will ultimately require remediation efforts to be in place. From missing policies and procedures to incorrectly configured IT systems, remediation can take time. NDB has years of experience in working with Texas service organizations in helping remediate controls prior to an actual audit.
SOC 1 SSAE 18 Type 1 Assessments: SOC 1 Type 1 assessments – which are audits performed for a specific date in time – are offered by NDB for fixed-fees. Additionally, we also provide a wide-range of documentation templates and other tools for helping ensure service organizations meet the rigorous reporting requirements for SOC 2.
SOC 1 SSAE 18 Type 2 Assessments: SOC 1 SSAE 18 Type 2 assessments require a test period where such controls can actually be tested for what’s known as “operating effectiveness”. Because of this, a Type 2 audit is more time-consuming, but at the same time, held in higher regard than a Type 1 audit, which merely assesses that a control is in place. There are differences, and NDB would be happy to discuss them with you.
Continuous Monitoring: Long after a service organization’s initial SOC 1 or SOC 2 audit is completed, annual continuous monitoring initiatives must be in place for ensuring all controls are operating as designed. If you neglect this important measure, then expect to have challenges in obtaining a “clean” audit opinion when the auditors come back the following year. NDB can assist in designing and implementing a continuous monitoring program that fits your budget and operational time constraints.
Additional SOC Audit Services: NDB also offers the following services: Penetration testing, vulnerability scanning, development of privacy programs/Business Continuity Disaster Recovery/Contingency Planning programs, and much more.
