Obtaining a SOC 1 report differentiates your service organization by demonstrating the establishment of effectively designed controls and subsequently providing your customers with the peace of mind to engage with your organization.
About SOC 1
SOC 1 reports allow your clients to be assured that the appropriate controls are in place in your environment that are relevant to your user entities’ controls over financial reporting. Previously, SAS 70 was used to provide evidence that an organization had operational controls in place with regard to the financial reporting of their customers. However, as of 2011, SOC 1 / SSAE 16 superseded SAS 70. As of May 1, 2017, any report opinion on or after that date will be issued under the SSAE 18 standard.
