What is SOC 1?
The Service Organization Control 1 Report (SOC 1) is an auditor report assessing controls for financial reporting. The SOC 1 targets companies providing services that could affect clients’ financial statements or internal controls over financial reporting.
A SOC 1 Type 1 assesses the design of a company’s internal financial controls at one point in time, whereas a SOC 1 Type 2 evaluates both the design and effectiveness of a company’s internal financial controls over a period of time.
