SYSTEM & ORGANIZATION CONTROLS (SOC) AUDITS

Is your organization demonstrating its commitment to maintain effective internal controls and safeguards to protect not only yourself but your customers?

 

Outsourced services users and their auditors increasingly are requesting more information than ever before about the effectiveness of controls at the service organizations they use, or are considering using, for outsourced business functions. KNAV can provide assurance reports that provide your users the valuable information they need to assess and address the risks associated with the outsourced services you provide, helping build trust and transparency.

 

It is important to identify which SOC report is right for your organization as there are several reporting options available.

 

Reporting options include the SOC 1®, SOC 2®, SOC 3® and SOC for Cybersecurity.
