SOC 2 Assessments
SOC 2 Remediation to prepare for SOC 2 Type 1 and SOC 2 Type 2 audits
NDB offers SOC 2 Remediation solutions for helping service organizations prepare for SOC 2 Type 1 and SOC 2 Type 2 audits. The thought of jumping right into SOC 2 compliance without performing any type of meaningful remediation is not recommended. In fact, for service organizations that go that route, they quickly find out how inefficient and time-consuming that approach can be. Bottom line, you need to properly remediate all control deficiencies found during the SOC 2 Scoping & Readiness assessment prior to beginning an actual audit.
SOC 2 remediation services offered by NDB for service organizations consist of the following
- Documentation Creating (Writing Policies and Procedures)
- Technical Remediation (Assisting with Security Controls)
- Operational Remediation (Performing Risk Assessments, undertaking Security Awareness Training, testing Incident Response Plans)
Let’s take a closer look at each of these essential SOC 2 remediation categories and how NDB can assist your organization today
