Our SOC 2 Type 1 and SOC 2 Type 2 Services
Here’s a brief look at the services we offer that can help you comply with all SOC 2 mandates.
Assessments of SOC 2 Readiness – If you want to get a detailed understanding of any issues or gaps that exist within your control environment before your SOC 2 audit, then a readiness assessment will be a perfect solution. This is a proactive method for correcting any deficiencies or gaps in your internal control structure prior to the start of the audit. This isn’t just another way for us to charge you for our services. An assessment is actually a sound investment that can pay off for years to come by saving you a significant number of man-hours.
Analysis of Your Business Processes – You have options when it comes to your SOC 2 assessment. Do you want it to cover all of your service offerings, or do you just want to concentrate on certain, specific services and functions? The more comprehensive the audit, of course, the longer it will take – and the more it will cost. However, a comprehensive assessment will do a better job of finding any deficiencies that might be present.
Remediation Services – One of the most important reasons for an SOC 2 audit will be to take a detailed “look under the hood,” so to speak, into your data security processes. This thorough examination will show you exactly what needs to be fixed. Some businesses have more issues than others, and will need more remediation as a result. This could mean making certain enhancements to your strategy, or updating your company policies.
Remediation will help you achieve the clean bill of health you’ll need in order to be compliant with all mandates and regulations. NDB offers a wide range of remediation services, including system configuration procedures, policy writing and more.
TSPs – If you aren’t familiar with TSPs (Trust Services Principles), it’s time you were. They form the core of an SOC 2 assessment, and consist of the following components:
• Integrity of processing
AICPA Framework Assistance – In an effort to eliminate the archaic (and often abused) SAS 70 standard for auditing, the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) created a new reporting platform in 2011. Known as the AICPA Service Organization Control platform, it provided a way to synchronize the AICPA’s existing reporting framework with internationally accepted data security auditing standards. It gave the AICPA the tools it needed to help keep up with the increasing complexity involved with companies sharing data with third-party service providers.
Why should you care? There are three auditing options within the AICPA framework:
• SSAE 18 SOC 1 assessments
• SOC 2 assessments
• SOC 3 assessments
At NDB, we’re experts in the AICPA framework, and we can make sure you receive the best audit for your specific needs.
