What Are Service Organization Control (SOC) Reports?

The American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) publishes Service Organization Control (SOC) guides for auditors to utilize when reporting on controls at service organizations.

AICPA SOC 2 SOC 3 Type II, Formerly SAS-70 2017

SOC 2 is based on AT Section 101 of the AICPA professional standards. A SOC 2 report examines controls at a service organization relevant to the security, availability, or processing integrity of a system or the confidentiality or privacy of the information contained in the system (e.g., BDI). These audits are based on the Trust Service Principles, Criteria and Illustrations (AICPA, Technical Practice Aids) established jointly by the AICPA and the Canadian Institute of Chartered Accountants (CICA). A SOC 2 report is intended for existing customers and their auditors, not potential customers or the general public.

TYPE I And TYPE II Reports

In any SOC engagement, the auditor provides a Type I or a Type II report. Type I reports document an auditor's opinion regarding the accuracy, completeness and suitable design of an organization's controls as of a set date. Type II reports audit the implementation of these controls over a set period of time, typically 6 months to a year, with sample testing of each controls' operating effectiveness during the defined period.
