Discover how ARRK Partners can guarantee your SOC 2 readiness and audit triumph. In an increasingly digital world, data security and privacy are paramount concerns for businesses of all sizes. To address these concerns, many organizations turn to SOC 2 compliance, a framework designed to ensure that service providers securely manage data and protect the interests of their clients.

Achieving SOC 2 compliance is a complex process, and that’s where ARRK Partners comes in. With our expertise and structured approach, we can guide you through the SOC 2 readiness and audit journey, making the process seamless and efficient.

Our Process

Choose Type 1 or Type II Report: The SOC 2 framework offers two types of reports: Type 1, which evaluates the design of your controls at a specific point in time, and Type II, which assesses the effectiveness of these controls over a specified period. We help you determine which report type suits your needs best.

Select Trust Services Criteria: SOC 2 compliance focuses on five trust services criteria: security, availability, processing integrity, confidentiality, and privacy. We assist you in selecting the criteria that align with your business objectives.

Determine Scope and Timeframe of Audit: Our experts work closely with you to define the scope and duration of your SOC 2 audit. This involves identifying the systems, processes, and services that fall within the audit’s scope.

Conduct a Gap Analysis: Our team performs a comprehensive gap analysis, comparing your current controls and processes against the chosen trust services criteria. This step highlights areas where improvements are needed.

Remediate Any Gaps: Based on the gap analysis findings, we collaborate with your organization to develop and implement corrective actions, ensuring that any identified gaps are addressed effectively.

Compile Documentation: We assist you in assembling all the necessary documentation, including policies, procedures, and evidence of controls, which will be vital during the audit.

Complete Readiness Assessment: Before the formal audit, we conduct a readiness assessment to verify that all controls and processes are in place and functioning correctly. This step ensures that you’re well-prepared for the audit.

Formal Audit: Finally, we guide you through the SOC 2 audit process. Our experienced auditors will evaluate your controls and processes, and upon successful completion, issue the SOC 2 report that demonstrates your commitment to data security and privacy.
