That’s right, even with today’s rigorous and demanding regulatory compliance mandates, shouldn’t you be doing all you can for ensuring the safety and security or your businesses – you should – and our SOC 1 SSAE 18 readiness assessment provides such information.
Why Colorado Businesses Need a SOC 1 Readiness Assessment
Preparation Translates to Auditing Success: Want to know what security and infrastructure weaknesses and control deficiencies you have – if so – then that’s exactly the goal of a SOC 1 SSAE 18 readiness assessment. More specifically, it’s about identifying gaps and internal control inadequacies relating to a service organization’s policies, procedures, and related processes.
Assessing Needs Prior to the Audit: A SOC 1 SSAE 18 readiness assessment – when performed by qualified professionals – helps identify material weaknesses within a service organization’s control environment. Specifically, it’s about finding and correcting security, operational, and infrastructure issues prior to the actual audit commencing, and that’s a good thing. Stopping an audit in midstream for purposes of correcting internal control issues is not an efficient process, so plan accordingly by conducting a readiness assessment at the front-end.
Identifying Scope: Another benefit of NDB’s SOC 1 SSAE 18 readiness assessment for Colorado service organizations is the ability to effectively identity, assess, and ultimately determine audit scope. More importantly, what business processes and functions will be examined, what physical locations and personnel will be involved in the audit, and more.
