Deeply Experienced in the Guidelines and Standards

Service Organization Control (SOC) Reports apply to organizations that handle sensitive client data related to using outsourced business processing and information technology. We specialize in reporting on controls, providing SOC reports, and giving advice by selecting the most relevant SOC report or SSAE 18 Audit for you.

There are three types of Service Organization Control Reports: SOC 1SOC 2, and SOC 3.


SOC 1 Report
Building Trust and Confidence for Your Clients’ Financial Statement Controls

A SOC 1, or SSAE 18 Report (formerly SAS 70), focuses on controls that are likely to be relevant to an audit of your clients’ financial statements. Hein is here to help you understand SOC 1 reports and what actions are required to comply with your client’s requests.

SOC 2 Report
Building Trust and Confidence in Your Operational Controls

A SOC 2 report provides an independent examination of the controls you have in place to keep your client’s information safe. Like a SOC 1 report, it requires a written assertion by your company’s management regarding control objectives, system description, and effectiveness of your controls.

SOC 3 Report
Provide Clients and Prospects with Confidence in Your Controls

Given the restricted size of the audience for an organization’s SOC 2 report and the level of detail involved, many organizations choose to issue a SOC 3 report in order to share some less detailed information about their operational controls with a broader group of stakeholders.
