SOC 3 Examinations

Primary Contact: Eric M. Wright CPA, CITP

SOC 3 - SOC for Service Organizations: Trust Services Criteria for General Use Report - Trust Services Report for Service Organizations.

SOC 3 examinations are designed to meet the needs of users that desire assurance about the controls at a service organization that cover the same five categories as the SOC 2, but do not have the need for or the knowledge necessary to make effective use of the details contained in a SOC 2 report. Because they are general use reports, SOC 3 reports can be freely distributed or posted on a website.
