Our Approach

Malleum’s approach to the SOC 1 and SOC 2 Compliance Journey involves a structured, comprehensive process:

1. Initial Assessment and Gap Analysis

We begin by conducting a thorough assessment of your current control environment against the SOC 1 and SOC 2 requirements. This initial analysis identifies compliance gaps and areas for improvement.

2. Remediation Planning and Implementation

Based on the gap analysis, we develop a detailed remediation plan to address identified deficiencies. Our team supports the implementation of necessary changes, including process adjustments and control enhancements.

3. Documentation and Evidence Gathering

A critical component of SOC compliance is comprehensive documentation. We assist in preparing and compiling the necessary documentation and evidence to demonstrate the effectiveness of controls and compliance with the relevant criteria.

4. Readiness Review and Testing

Before the formal audit, we conduct a readiness review and testing to ensure that all controls are operating effectively. This step helps identify any last-minute adjustments needed to ensure compliance.

5. Audit Support and Liaison

During the external audit process, Malleum acts as a liaison between your organization and the auditors. We provide support in answering queries, presenting evidence, and explaining the control environment to facilitate a smooth audit process.

6. Continuous Improvement and Monitoring

Post-audit, we continue to work with your organization to monitor the control environment and make continuous improvements. This ensures ongoing compliance and helps prepare for future audits.
