Take the mystery out of SOC reporting. Prepare for your engagement in as few as two weeks.

What is a SOC Readiness Assessment?

Streamline Your Compliance Initiatives. Prepare for Your SOC Report in as Few as Two Weeks.

During a Readiness Assessment, the Auditwerx engagement team performs an “examination before the examination” on your process from beginning to end, explains what controls should be in place at each step, and evaluates whether your existing controls are in line with best practices. This assessment is helpful for preparing for a SOC assessment, and delivers a roadmap that your business can follow to a successful SOC examination.

Why Does Readiness Matter?

Without a Readiness Assessment, you may receive qualifications or exceptions in your final report. This could make your systems look less than trustworthy to current or future clients. A Readiness Assessment helps you avoid this headache, by making sure your systems have the proper controls in place before your examination.

What to Expect During Your SOC Readiness Assessment

We have helped countless organizations understand their current internal measures and improve upon them. During the readiness process, we assess the data flow of the services, identify controls, and provide a gap analysis of controls that may need implementation or improvement. 

“…Auditors were extremely courteous and patient with a great sense of urgency when it was needed the most. We would highly recommend Auditwerx services to organizations of all sizes and requirement complexities.”
