Now that we have examined SOC 2 software in detail throughout both Part 1 and Part 2 of our blog series, you may be wondering what you can do to simplify SOC 2 reporting when you’re ready to undergo your examination.
While automated tools can never replace a human auditor, there are certain standards you can ensure that your organization is adhering to on a day-today basis.
Best Practices for Fulfilling SOC 2 Requirements:
- Maintain all professional and ethical standards.
- Fulfill all Trust Services Criteria and requirements as outlined by the AICPA.
- Ensure necessary safeguards are in place to ensure independence from subcontractors or other vendors – including your software provider.
- Ensure professional obligations for your service auditor are being met.
- Avoid management responsibilities as it pertains to your own work.
SOC reporting can feel time-consuming, expensive, and frustrating – but it doesn’t have to.
