SOC 2 reports on your organization’s internal controls as they relate to the AICPA Trust Services Criteria: Security, Availability, Processing Integrity, Confidentiality, and Privacy. The report provides you and your customers with assurance that your internal controls are designed correctly and operating effectively to meet your system objectives and service level commitments. The SOC 2 report can also report on your HITRUST certification or on your compliance with the HITRUST standard.
Completion of a SOC 2 Plus HITRUST audit can help you meet contractual obligations with existing customers and attract new customers by demonstrating your organization’s compliance with AICPA , COSO, and HITRUST standards, which are considered the benchmark for internal controls in the U.S. health care sector. SOC 2 Plus HITRUST compliance differentiates your firm from your competitors and provides you with a competitive advantage in the marketplace.
SOC 2 Plus HITRUST also helps mature your internal controls and can help you manage organizational risk beyond what internal risk assessments and audits provide. SOC 2 Plus HITRUST audits can identify deficiencies in internal controls, pinpoint areas for improvement, and will strengthen your organization’s control environment and security posture.
