Service Organization Control (SOC) Reports
Service organizations like yours utilize information technology to deliver value in a variety of business functions, such as: payroll processing, general ledger / accounting, medical / third party billing, medical claims processing, donation and development, human resource information systems, financial services, investment management, and document management. The data collected on behalf of your customers often contains protected, personal or confidential customer information. A data breach could be costly to both you and your clients on many levels, resulting in reputational harm, loss of customers, loss of donors or loss of revenue.
Liability concerns and the growth in cloud computing have elevated the marketplace demand for assurance regarding effective controls over these outsourced service functions. SOC Reports provide your clients with the information they need about your controls to help assess and address the risks associated with an outsourced service.
