What are SOC Audits?

SOC (System and Organization Controls) audits are evaluations of a service organization's controls related to information security, availability, processing integrity, confidentiality, and privacy. They are crucial for businesses that handle sensitive customer data, ensuring that adequate safeguards are in place to protect this information.

Why SOC Audits Matter

In today’s digital age, data breaches and cyber threats are increasingly common. SOC audits provide assurance to stakeholders that your organization is managing risks effectively and that your systems are secure and reliable. They are essential for maintaining customer trust and meeting regulatory requirements.

Types of SOC Audits


Focus: Internal controls over financial reporting (ICFR).

Purpose: Provides assurance on the controls at a service organization that may be relevant to a user entity's financial reporting.

Who Needs It: Organizations that handle financial transactions or processes.


Focus: Trust service criteria - security, availability, processing integrity, confidentiality, and privacy.

Purpose: Evaluates the operational effectiveness of these controls.

Who Needs It: Technology and cloud computing companies, data centers, and any organization that stores or processes customer data.


Focus: Similar to SOC 2 but provides a summary report for general distribution.

Purpose: Offers a seal of assurance for companies that want to demonstrate their controls to a broad audience without revealing detailed information.

Who Needs It: Any organization wanting to publicly demonstrate their commitment to security and data integrity.
