SOC Examinations

A Service Organization’s Symbol of Strong Internal Controls

The FD Process, Risk & Governance (PRG) Practice Group provides customized risk management solutions to improve efficiency and add value. We deliver assurance and consulting services to clients large and small and also have extensive expertise in IT risk management.

A Service Organization Controls (SOC) examination helps service organizations identify and enhance a competitive edge. A SOC examination (formerly SAS 70) proves your commitment to maintaining internal controls by providing third-party attestation to the reliability of the design, implementation and operating effectiveness of your controls. A SOC examination can reduce impact on your internal resources by minimizing the need for external audits and can identify improvements to strengthen your operations.
