SOC 3 Report: Provide Clients and Prospects with Confidence in Your Controls

Given the restricted size of the audience for an organization’s SOC 2 report and the level of detail involved, many organizations choose to issue a SOC 3 report in order to share some less detailed information about their operational controls with a broader group of stakeholders.

A SOC 3 report (referred to by some as a “SOC 3 certification”) provides a limited view of the organization’s system and controls related to information technology and data security and, therefore, is suitable to be used in the service organization’s marketing and sales efforts.

The deliverable is a general use report that provides relevant information about the security, privacy, confidentiality, availability, and processing integrity of the organization’s operational controls to decision makers at current and prospective customers. It gives the service organization the opportunity to advertise that their processes have been examined by an independent third party against any or all of these five Trust Services Principles.
