Streamline compliance process with SOC 2 audit services

SOC 2 is not a prescriptive list of controls, tools, or processes but rather a set of criteria that must be in place to maintain strong information security. This allows us to tailor our services to your objectives and operations, ensuring compliance efforts align with unique business practices. We provide compliance services and implementation support according to SOC 2 Trust Services Criteria (TSC), consulting companies on SOC 2 Type I or SOC 2 Type II audit preparation. As a SOC 2 consultant, we efficiently implement the necessary processes and develop appropriate records/evidence of compliance.

SOC2 Type I Audit Preparation

The SOC 2 Type I report, also known as a point-in-time report, includes an opinion over the suitability of the design of controls at a service organization at a specific time. This initial report often serves as the starting point for subsequent type 2 reviews, providing valuable insights into the effectiveness of controls and helping you identify areas for improvement. Our consulting team is assisting in preparing for the external SOC 2 type I audit. Our goal is to ensure that the necessary measures are in place to successfully pass the audit and meet the relevant compliance requirements. We are working closely with the client to identify any potential gaps or areas of improvement, and are providing expert guidance and support to address these issues. Our ultimate objective is to help our client demonstrate their commitment to maintaining a strong security posture and to instill confidence in their stakeholders that their information is being protected effectively.

SOC 2 Type II Audit Preparation

SOC 2 Type II Audit Preparation

To prepare for a SOC 2 Type II audit, the service organization must have already achieved compliance with the TSC categories. A SOC 2 Type II report provides an independent assessment of a service organization's controls over some time, typically at least six months. Our consulting team is engaged in preparing for the external SOC 2 Type II audit. Our primary focus is on ensuring that our client's controls and processes are designed effectively and operating efficiently over an extended period of time. We are working closely with our client to identify any potential weaknesses or areas that require improvement and implement appropriate measures to address them.

SOC 2 audit consulting process

Step 1

Readiness assessment

During SOC 2 consulting, we review the audit scope, review documentation and the company’s processes, develop a project plan, and identify control issues early. The assessment will evaluate processes and procedures. We examine the current SOC 2 compliance status and identify areas that need improvement.

Step 2

Remediation

As part of our SOC 2 implementation process, TechMagic provides comprehensive support to address any observations and remediate shortfalls. We perform audit scoping, develop the documentation, support in compiling the system or service description, support during the conduction of risk assessment, control selection, and defining control effectiveness measurements and metrics. Our approach involves iterative reviews and feedback throughout the remediation process.

Step 3

Testing and reporting

Our SOC 2 implementation process includes rigorous testing and reporting to ensure comprehensive compliance. Our expert team conducts thorough assessments, evaluating controls and processes against the SOC 2 Trust Services Criteria. Trust us for a reliable SOC 2 implementation process that guarantees the security and integrity of the company’s data.

Step 4

Maintaining certification

Once SOC 2 certification is achieved, we can help you monitor compliance status through regular audits and assessments. Our team reviews controls, policies, and procedures to ensure they remain effective and aligned with SOC 2 requirements. We offer timely updates and recommendations for improvement based on the SOC 2 audit checklist.
