Considering the value of SOC reporting? Leveraging Microsoft Azure IaaS can make this process easier for you.
Attend the SOC on Azure webinar and learn:
- The value of SOC reporting
- Which Microsoft Azure validations can be leveraged
- How your SOC audit would be affected by leveraging Microsoft Azure
- The carve-out vs. inclusive method of reporting subservice organization controls
- The myth that your organization is covered under the Microsoft Azure SOC 2 report (spoiler alert! You aren’t)
- Responsibility matrix – the shared, Azure-specific, and client-specific responsibilities under SOC
Join the leaders of Coalfire’s SOC practice, Jeffrey Cook, Principal, and Dixon Wright, Managing Principal, as they discuss considerations, efficiencies, and lessons learned from completing SOC engagements for organizations that leverage Microsoft Azure.
Why do you need a SOC 1 or SOC 2 report?
This type of reporting provides an independent attestation of your organization’s controls related to financial reporting (SOC 1) or non-financial reporting (SOC 2 - security, availability, confidentiality, processing integrity, and privacy) to understand if controls are in-line with client expectations, regulations, and requirements.
SOC 2 reports are on the rise as cloud companies are requesting these reports of each other to better understand the service organization and subservice organization’s commitments to both financial and IT security.
How does Microsoft Azure make the SOC audit process easier for you?
Microsoft Azure is a provider of cloud infrastructure services, which Coalfire frequently sees when performing SOC examinations for clients. While it’s true that by using any subservice organization you inherit risks from their environment that need to be monitored and reported on, using a security-conscious vendor like Microsoft Azure can provide better security and streamlined operations.
