Created by the AICPA Service Organization Control Reporting Task Force and the AICPA Information Technology interest area, this product is geared specifically to allow service auditor professionals to better inform service organizations and user entities of the possible reporting choices available.

Designed as a marketing and communications tool to help build your practice, this guide acts as a “take-away” you can provide to your clients as a ready reference to service organization reporting controls. It educates your clients on fundamental information they need to know about service organization controls (SOC) and what options are available to them.

The guide addresses key topics that may arise when user entities are determining which type of SOCSM report best meet their needs and contains concise explanations, helpful charts on SOC 1, 2, and 3 engagements, and significant information on recent developments.

Sold in bundles of 25 copies per unit, the printed version comes to you as self-mailers—making them ideal client marketing tools. Imprinted copies are also available. You can have your firm name and contact information preprinted on the back cover in return address format. For more information, or to order the imprinting service, call
