Cybersecurity threats and other information security incidents bring attention to third-party service providers from clients and their auditors. Many are asking their software-as-a-service, payroll processing and other types of vendors to produce Service Organization Control reports to gauge how client data are being kept secure in this high-risk environment. Some services organizations that don’t use another service organization to provide their services choose to meet these requests through SOC 3 reporting.
A SOC 3 report provides a high-level description of the service organization’s services and control structure. The report is geared toward the public and doesn’t provide detailed reporting on a service organization’s controls and the service auditor’s testing, such as in the SOC 1 or SOC 2 report.
MHM works closely with vendors to deliver reports that attest to how controls over IT processes and privacy measure up to trust services principles outlined by the AICPA. We evaluate the control environment, helping providers pinpoint where their processes could be improved to address emerging trends and changes in information technology management.
