System and Organization Controls (SOC) Audit
Akram | Assurance, Advisory & Tax Firm guides service organizations through a readiness or “gap” assessment identifying areas where controls are missing or require improvement. Please download our SOC Audit Brochure (PDF).
System and Organization Controls (SOC) Examination Reports
A successful SOC report can:
Reduce compliance costs and time spent on audits and vendor questionnaires
Meet contractual obligations and marketplace concerns through flexible, customized reporting
Proactively address cyber risks across the organization
Increase trust and transparency with internal and external stakeholders
Our skilled and experienced team guides clients through the three types of SOC reports determining which is the right report for their business.
The three types of SOC reports are:
SOC 1 reports address a company’s internal control over financial reporting, which pertains to the application of checks-and-limits.
SOC 2 reports will help a service organization’s customers satisfy their vendor management, business continuity, and regulatory requirements. A SOC 2 report is built to identify the consistent set of parameters surrounding the IT services a third party provides to customers. If customers are inquiring about the control environment surrounding the provision of private, confidential, available and secure IT services, then we should discuss the steps required to obtain an independently audited and assessed SOC II report.
SOC 3 reports are designed to be a less technical and detailed audit report with a seal of approval, which can be shared with customers.

The Akram team brings over 20 years of industry expertise and insight to the SOC reporting process by:
