SOC 1 Compliance Auditors | Denver, Colorado | Fixed Fees

“So which audit do we need, a SOC 1 or a SOC 2” is a very common question fielded from Denver businesses, and rightfully so as there’s general confusion and misguidance on SOC 1 vs. SOC 2.

SOC 2 Reporting Framework and the Top 10 Items You Need to Know About | Part III

7. Provide a Written Statement of Assertion. Yet another requirement for SOC 2 compliance is providing the service auditor (i.e., the CPA performing the SOC 2 engagement) with a written statement of assertion. This assertion, which is a strict requirement for SOC reporting, is essentially a document whereby the service organization’s management must assert to a number of different provisions regarding their overall control environment.

8. Policies and Procedures are Critical.  SOC 2 assessments are technical – there’s no debating that – but keep in mind that a large part of today’s compliance mandates – particularly SOC 2 reports – require comprehensive policy and procedure documents to be in place. NDNB provides a comprehensive SOC 2 Policy Packet to all of our clients that we work with, helping them save thousands of dollar and hundreds of man-hours on critical policy development.

SOC 2 Reporting Framework and the Top 10 Items You Need to Know About | Part II

4. Learn about AT Section 101. If you are a service organization seeking SOC 2 compliance, be sure to take note of the following technical aspects of AT Section 101. In short, AT 101 is the professional AICPA standard used for reporting on subject matters other than those relating to financial statement reporting for internal controls. 

Additionally, any practitioner performing an engagement in accordance with AT 101 is to adhere to five (5) general standards for audit professionalism. In short, it’s about being independent, doing your job as an auditor, and performing the assessment and reporting on your findings, and that’s really all you need to know.

Picking a high-quality CPA firm – an organization with years of regulatory compliance expertise and professionalism – will help ensure the AT 101 protocols are being followed. To learn more about SOC 2 and receive a competitively priced, fixed-fee proposal, speak with CPA Christopher Nickell at 1-800-277-5415, ext. 706, or email Chris at This email address is being protected from spambots.

SOC 2 Reporting Framework and the Top 10 Items You Need to Know About | Part I

1. Learn about the AICPA System and Organization Controls (SOC) framework. In an effort to radically reshape reporting requirements for today's complex and ever-changing service organization landscape, the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) developed the all-new Service Organization Control (SOC) framework in 2011. This framework allows for the issuance of three different types of reports – SOC 1, SOC 2, and SOC 3 reporting. While SOC 1 reports employ the use of the SSAE 16 (and now SSAE 18) professional standard for reporting on controls, SOC 2 and SOC 3 reports---which are highly conducive assessment frameworks for technology businesses – utilize the Trust Services Principles & Criteria (TSP) in accordance with the AT 101 professional standard. For years, the SAS 70 standard was the one-size fits all auditing standard for service organizations, but it was largely misused and antiquated, forcing the AICPA to make big changes – changes that were ultimately necessary.

2. Gain a Strong Understanding of the Trust Services Principles & Criteria (TSP) framework. Unlike the now thankfully replaced SAS 70 auditing standard or even the current SSAE 16 attestation standard (and now, SSAE 18) which replaced it, the framework for a SOC 2 report is "criteria" based, whereby a practitioner is engaged to examine and report on a service organization's controls over one or more of the following five (5) Trust Services Principles & Criteria (TSP):
