SOC-3

Marketing to Prospective Clients

A SOC 3 report 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.

Like a SOC 2 Report, a SOC 3 report addresses one or more areas at the service organization relevant to the Trust Services Principles: Security, Availability, Processing Integrity, Confidentiality and Privacy.

The deliverable is a general use report that provides relevant information about 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 the five Trust Services Principles.

Because SOC 3 reports are general use reports, they can be freely distributed or posted on a website as a seal (for unqualified reports only).
