SOC for Cybersecurity

SOC for Cybersecurity


With mounting cybersecurity threats, organizations are under increasing pressure to demonstrate that they are managing these threats and have effective processes and controls in place to prevent and detect breaches that could disrupt their business, result in financial losses, or destroy their reputation. Based on this need, the AICPA has issued the SOC for Cybersecurity.


About SOC for Cybersecurity

SOC for Cybersecurity is a flexible reporting framework to help organizations communicate about their cybersecurity risk management program and the effectiveness of controls within that program to key stakeholders. As a certified public accounting firm, CyberGuard can use the framework to examine and report on an organization’s cybersecurity risk management program
The cybersecurity report will include:

  • The CPA firm’s opinion on the description and effectiveness of controls in place to achieve the cybersecurity criteria
  • Management’s assertion regarding the presentation and effectiveness of the controls in place to achieve the cybersecurity criteria.
  • Management’s description of the entity’s cybersecurity risk management program.
