Simple Guide to SOC for Cybersecurity


In April 2017 the AICPA released the SOC for Cybersecurity examination. The report’s goal is to provide Companies a report type that is more appropriate for general distribution and that also provides report readers visibility into the Company’s cybersecurity risk management program.

This whitepaper provides an overview of SOC for Cybersecurity and clarifies the distinctions between the SOC for Cybersecurity and SOC 2 examinations and provide readers a simple guide (see table starting on page 3) to navigating each report type.
