SOC considerations through the COVID-19 lens

With COVID-19 impacting nearly all organizations, including many organizations implementing remote work, new risks may be introduced that should be carefully considered in the context of System and Organization Controls (SOC) 1 and SOC 2. 

Join Baker Tilly’s SOC specialists for a webinar addressing the potential impacts on controls and how organizations may need to re-evaluate security controls for their remote workforce. We will also discuss what SOC report users may want to see in 2020, and beyond, related to COVID-19 responses by their service organizations. Finally, this session will provide service organizations with key considerations related to their SOC 1 and/or SOC 2 reports.

Learning objectives:

After attending this webinar, participants will be able to:

  • Describe the potential impacts that changes made in response to COVID-19 may have on SOC 1 and SOC 2 controls
  • Explain SOC 2 security considerations related to changes made to facilitate remote work
  • Identify the likely impacts to SOC reports in 2020, including what user auditors might expect to be disclosed

Who should attend?

This webinar is intended for SOC 1 and SOC 2 report issuers and recipients.
