FREE: Baker Tilly: Transitioning Between System and Organization Control (SOC) Reports Webinar
Tuesday, February 12, 2019, 11:00 AM-12:00 PM
In 2011, the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) retired the SAS70 standard and replaced it with the SOC 1 and SOC 2® reporting vehicles. Service organizations have been providing their customers, clients and key stakeholders with controls assurance via one of these reports. Typically, a company would receive either a SOC 1 OR a SOC 2® report. However, many organizations receiving SOC 1 are also seeking a SOC 2® examination in response to their customers’ demand.
In this webinar, Baker Tilly discusses the key differences between the SOC 1 and SOC 2® report, and why a company receiving a SOC 1 report would need or benefit from a SOC 2® report. The Baker Tilly presenters are Mark Boettcher and Andrew Wittig.
