SOC1 exercises controls at a service organization relevant to user entities internal control over financial reporting. To provide information to the auditor of a user entity’s financial statements about controls at a service organization that may be relevant to a user entity’s internal control over financial reporting.

Why is SOC1 compliance required?

The customers will periodically need to comply with audit requests that come from accounting firms outside, so the results of SOC testing can help make those audits run more smoothly.
