SOC Readiness

Leverage a SOC report to promote trust with clients and demonstrate secure and compliant operations.


SOC reports are commonly used to provide third-party attestation and promote trust with end clients.  Preparing for a SOC attestation can be a significant undertaking - one Asureti is experienced in supporting.  Our experience streamlines control identification, designs assessments, and ensures you are fully prepared for your third party attestation.

Why should you include a SOC readiness review in your SOC roadmap and plan?

  • Organizations desire an “Unqualified” report – meaning there are no significant control issues impacting the overall attestation opinion.
  • A readiness assessment significantly improves overall reporting, including the results for the public-facing and shareable report content.
  • Your readiness provider can be a key advisor and partner working on an organization’s behalf throughout the process.

As your Readiness partner, Asureti will:

  • Provide support in designing and implementing controls.
  • Document management’s narrative and control summaries.
  • Support management in confirming entity level controls and specified requirements such as risk oversight and vendor management.
  • Work with the SOC 2 attestation provider to ensure consistency in approach, design and methodology.

The components of a readiness assessment include:

  • Confirm in-scope criteria.
  • Identify operational and system boundaries and document scope.
  • Perform inquiry and documentation review to assess the suitability of design of controls. 
  • Identify gaps and areas for improvement.
  • Map and document controls identified to meet requirements.
  • Provide recommendations to management for additional controls, modifications, or maintenance of evidence of control operation.
  • Document narrative structure and end-user controls for inclusion in required reporting structures.
