SOC for Service Organizations (SOC 2) – Houston TX

Many businesses and organizations in Houston and across Texas provide services that require the updating, and processing of sensitive personally identifiable information (PII). This may include social security, bank account, credit card numbers, home address, and more. Ensuring adequate protections are in place is not only necessary to prevent breaches, but also to ensure customers and prospects about the quality of cybersecurity controls. In fact, many expect to see a System Organization Control (SOC 2) report before doing business with a company.

What is a SOC 2 Report?

This report provides essential information to customers, vendors, and others, that require assurance about the security of controls, availability, and integrity of systems used to process confidential data. They play an important role on organizational oversight, vendor management programs, risk management, internal corporate governance, and regulatory oversight. Only a licensed CPA firm is permitted to conduct these assessments and render an opinion on the quality of controls.

Houston SOC Experience

Our team has significant experience conducting SOC 2 examinations for Houston businesses. Specifically, we can assist with:

  • SOC 2 Reports – Prepared for service organizations for which a detailed understanding and assurance around internal controls at the organization is necessary. Depending on the need, Calvetti Ferguson can conduct a SOC 2 Type I or SOC 2 Type II examination. The main difference between the two is that a Type I report covers a specific period, whereas Type II reports cover a minimum six-month period.
  • SOC 2 Plus -These examinations include one to all five of the Trust Services Categories and Criteria, plus additional criteria for frameworks such as HITRUST, PCI, ISO 27001, NIST or other established control frameworks.

About Houston (TX)

One of the cornerstones of Houston's business community is its commitment to fostering innovation and entrepreneurship. The city hosts numerous business incubators, accelerators, and co-working spaces that provide a nurturing environment for startups to flourish. This ecosystem is further supported by a network of venture capital firms, angel investors, and mentorship programs, facilitating the growth of promising new ventures.

The Houston business community benefits from strategic partnerships between the private sector, academic institutions, and government entities. Collaborations with local universities and research centers contribute to advancements in technology and knowledge-sharing, enhancing the city's overall competitiveness.

Furthermore, Houston's business-friendly policies and low cost of living make it an attractive destination for both established corporations and aspiring entrepreneurs. The absence of state income tax and a relatively affordable real estate market create an environment conducive to business expansion and relocation.
