Organizations are looking for assurances that their external service providers have internal controls that are designed effectively and operating as intended. System and organization controls (SOC) reports provide this assurance.
SOC reports can help clients, prospects, stakeholders, and other interested parties understand and gain confidence in the internal control environment of the service organization.
Obtaining a SOC report can help organizations:
Meet client expectations, contractual commitments, and regulatory requirements
Gain a competitive advantage by distinguishing themselves from their competitors
Lower inherent risks by identifying and addressing potential weaknesses in their systems
Minimize the need to deal clients' auditors, which can be intrusive and time consuming
Demonstrate the reliability and continued integrity of processes and procedures
Identify efficiency issues as well as duplicate controls in an effective and proactive way
For certain highly regulated industries, compliance gaps can have legal consequences. SOC reports are often not just a nice-to-have but a must-have.
