One of the biggest operational challenges that businesses encounter during the SOC 1 auditing process is remediation; correcting the gaps and deficiencies found during the readiness assessment that can sometimes require a tremendous amount of work. Companies are generally extremely good and proficient in what they do from an operational perspective – if not, they’d probably be out of business – but documenting internal controls is generally not high on the list, and it’s one reason gaps will surface prior to an audit.
What’s worse is that many businesses often fail to perform any type of meaningful remediation prior to the commencement of a SOC 1 SSAE 18 audit, and that’s where the challenges begin. Imagine trying to collect audit evidence for controls that are failing or not in place – it happens all the time – and it’s why spending a few extra dollars on the front-end will save you thousands more over the course of an audit – trust on this – we’ve been auditing for decades and are being completely transparent in this statement. Don’t get yourself into a nightmarish situation because you failed to plan accordingly – perform a SOC 1 SSAE 18 scoping & readiness assessment today.
