In fact, many service organizations are now being required to become SOC 2 compliant, instead of SOC 1, which is a change that's slowly taking place in the marketplace. This is a result of better understanding and greater clarity given to SOC 2 reporting and how service organizations - particularly technology oriented businesses - can benefit from the SOC 2 reporting option over that of SOC 1 SSAE 16.  And if service organizations do in fact choose SOC 2 reporting, then a sound understanding of AT 101 and the SysTrust and WebTrust principles will have to be undertaken for ensuring audit scope and testing parameters.  NDB, with years of experience in performing internal control audits and engagements, can also help service organizations in properly preparing for SOC 2 (and SOC 3) engagements with a comprehensive SOC 2 Readiness Assessment.
