LB Carlson, LLP has been providing Service Organization Control (SOC) reporting solutions for clients in the graphic arts, manufacturing, credit card processing and software as a service (SaaS) industries for several years.

The following reports provided by LB Carlson focus on internal controls and processes established by service organizations related to various types of subject matter:

  • SOC 1 ® — SOC for Service Organizations: Internal Control over Financial Reporting
    These reports are specifically designed to address controls at the service organization that are relevant to the reader’s financial statements.
  • SOC 2 ® — SOC for Service Organizations: Trust Services Criteria
    These reports address controls relevant to security, availability, and processing integrity of the systems the service organization uses to process users’ data and the confidentiality and privacy of the information these systems process.
  • SOC 3 ® — SOC for Service Organizations: Trust Services Criteria for General Use Report
    Similar to SOC 2, these reports address controls relevant to security, availability, processing integrity, confidentiality, and privacy. However, they do not provide the same level of detail. Therefore, they are considered general use reports and can be freely distributed.

LB Carlson, LLP recently expanded its SOC reporting solutions to include a strategic partnership with a HiTrust CSF certified assessor based in Minneapolis, Minnesota. This strategic partnership will allow for a seamless transition for those who wish to obtain both SOC compliance and HiTrust CSF certification and provides additional solutions for clients.

LB Carlson has solutions to assist throughout the entire process from assessing readiness and preparing for a SOC examination and HiTrust CSF certification through completion of the report(s). Contact a LB Carlson representative to assist in the selection of applicable reporting, preparation for the examination, and the reporting itself.
