SOC Examinations

Minimize Risk

We can help with your specialized needs

Hancock Askew has a highly specialized and dedicated SOC practice. Our team has developed an engagement process that eliminates delays and keeps projects on track through the use of audit technology and dedicated team members. Our SOC leaders each have 15+ years of experience and provide our team members extensive training which enables them to provide you with the highest quality reports on time for your customers at a competitive price.

Our SOC team members are available for developing a road map for your success through the process. These are the same dedicated team members who will also service your account from inception to report delivery. There are no handoffs from a Sales Department to Service Delivery or Operations (Reporting, Billing, Accounts Receivable, etc.).

We strive to release your report within 45 days of the end of the examination period so your customers can distribute them quickly to their users.

Our Process Addresses Benefits Including

  • Preliminary scoping & coverage recommendations to meet your security and compliance needs
  • Planning kick-off to set milestones to ensure timely SOC report delivery
  • Assistance drafting ‘System Description’ (Section III)
  • Fieldwork/testing to assess current state of your environment
  • Identification of potential gaps/exceptions in required controls are communicated in real-time
  • Timely report drafting and review/approval for on time SOC report delivery
