As many Texas service organizations begin the process of an SSAE 18 SOC 1 assessment, they often find large challenges and roadblocks ahead, much of it having to do with a laundry list of remediation items found during the initial readiness assessment. You simply cannot move forward with the audit until all gaps and deficiencies have been corrected, and it’s why NDB provides the following SSAE 18 SOC 1 remediation services to Texas businesses:
Information Security Policies and Procedures Writing: One of the most demanding and time-consuming remediation items is developing and implementing all necessary policy documentation, ranging from information security policies to operational and infrastructure documents, and more. NDB has the expertise and knowledge in helping draft high-quality policy documents, and we also provide our valued Texas clients with a complimentary InfoSec policy templates for those seeking to write their own policies.
Developing information security policies and procedures is often the most overlooked – and time-consuming – aspect of SSAE 18 SOC 1 and SOC 2 compliance; it truly is. Think about it, who really has the time to sit down and author dozens of security policies and procedures, keep them current, distribute them to all employees, and make necessary changes for ensuring they are relevant? It’s a tough-task that almost every company has challenges with, and it’s why NDB provides our industry leading templates free of charge to our valued Texas customers.
System and Security Enhancements: Even though SSAE 18 SOC 1 compliance is technically a financially driven assessment, the vast majority of the audit itself is technology driven, meaning the safety and security of critical information systems is paramount. It also means that network devices – firewalls, routers, switches – along with servers and their underlying applications – must be properly provisioned and deployed. This is where many service organizations have challenges, and it’s why NDB offers industry leading security checklists for helping ensure the safety and security of a service organization’s network infrastructure.
Operational and Infrastructure Assistance: Need assistance in implementing additional best practices throughout your organization, such as security awareness training, conducting a risk assessment, or even working with your personnel for making internal control enhancements? With NDB, we offer a multitude of services geared specifically towards SSAE 18 SOC 1 compliance, while helping to ensure the safety and security of critical organizational assets.
Also, if you’re seeing to become SOC 2 compliant or HIPAA or PCI DSS compliant, all the readiness assessment activities and remediation initiatives performed during an SSAE 18 SOC 1 engagement will not go to waste, not at all. Why, because internal controls often overlap when it comes to regulatory compliance, thus allowing for a great degree of efficiency for additional audits, so keep this in mind. Audits don’t have to be done in a singular fashion where one begins then ends, and another one is started, not at all. NDB often performs multiple audits for businesses seeking to become compliant with many of today’s growing regulatory rulings.
