ProcessUnity can help your organization accelerate SOC 2 certification more efficiently with tools to:
Map Internal Policies and Procedures to SOC 2 Domains
To avoid duplicative work, your team must identify and map your existing policies and procedures to your SOC 2 trust service criteria. Manually mapping this information is labor intensive, often requiring the help of a consultant. ProcessUnity provides a pre-mapped control framework that can be mapped to your policies and procedures, identifying gaps in your control structure and revealing where to add or update controls.
Baseline and Assess Control Effectiveness
SOC 2 helps baseline your control effectiveness and then progress towards set targets. The ProcessUnity Control Assessment Engine automates control reviews, ensuring you get on-time information to baseline and monitor control effectiveness. The platform triggers assessment distribution to assigned stakeholders based on your cadence, keeping control assessments on track throughout the year.
Gather Evidence of Control Effectiveness
When you need control evidence for an audit, you don’t want to rely on the timeliness of other stakeholders. ProcessUnity helps you get on-time information with escalation reminders and notifications to control and asset owners. The platform centralizes evidence collection in a single database, allowing you to organize and access evidence for audit.
Automate Third-Party Risk Management
SOC 2 requires organizations to demonstrate robust internal and external security practices, meaning you must continuously monitor third-party risk. ProcessUnity includes workflows for assessing third-party risk and factoring external control effectiveness into your overall control rating. Third parties can be monitored by criticality, allowing you to prioritize external issue remediation based on relevant risks to your business.
Report on Controls and Risks in Real Time
Auditors look for easy-to-read, comprehensive reports that detail your program’s commitment to continuous improvement. ProcessUnity helps you generate reports in seconds, reducing the time it takes to gather program data and report on findings. For your team, real-time reporting provides complete visibility into your program, helping you stay on top of issues and continuously improve your security posture.
Continuously Improve Cybersecurity Controls
Maintaining your SOC 2 certification as your business grows means continuously improving your security posture. ProcessUnity provides real-time monitoring of cybersecurity controls, risks and compliance, enabling your team to identify and address issues quickly. Reporting tools allow you to benchmark your program and measure performance against targets, providing visibility into where to allocate remediation efforts.
