This Alert helps you master the complexities of service organization control (SOC) engagements, including determination of the scope of the engagement, as well as identifying and responding to the needs of the user auditor.

This essential resource saves you countless research hours and reduces the risk of noncompliance.

It is intended to help practitioners gain a better understanding of SOC engagements, discover the best resources to use to perform the engagements, and learn about issues that have arisen in the industry over the past 2 years. It also provides professional guidelines that will enhance both consistency and quality in the performance of attest services.

  • Help your own engagements by applying lessons-learned over the past two years. Topics include: management’s written assertion, system descriptions, evaluating deviations, subservice organization and more.
