An audit can be a daunting exercise for an organization, especially since they are
responsible for other crucial business activities. Also, many of the time, companies fail an
audit because of a lack of internal skills.
CSCC LABS audit service enables you to reduce the time your team spends preparing audit
documents. Companies spend as much time preparing for the audit as the audit firm spends
conducting the onsite portion of the audit. Using our experienced audit-prep team, your
company saves significant, and essential personnel can focus on the company's job.
Auditors need well-organized documents to complete an audit efficiently. If you do not
organize your information correctly, auditors will need to spend more time asking you
questions. Using an experienced audit prep team, your company can save money by reducing
the auditor's time collecting information.
Can your auditing firm prepare you for an audit?
No. Regulations prohibit auditors from auditing a firm and providing audit preparation
services to the same firm. Meaning, the firm that audits you can't prepare you for the
audit is called "Segregation of Duties." Therefore, it is your responsibility to ensure
you get the information and data prepared in time for the audit. To ensure compliance,
you need to 1. Designate and assign internal resources (often these are unqualified
personnel who take time and do not do the job correctly ).or 2. Hire an external firm.
Hiring an independent firm not associated with your auditing firm is the only choice for
audit preparation services.
Our team can help you prepare. With our years of auditing experience, we understand what
auditors need. Our audit prep experts will make sure your documents and data necessary
for the audit are compiled and verify before your audit begins. Being prepared when the
auditor (s) arrives will ensure smoother auditing. In addition, we will free up your
time before the audit and enable you to remain productive.
We will work with the responsible stakeholders to prepare all the identified audit items
without impacting their work. In addition, we will conduct follow up with you
periodically to ensure your environment is in line throughout the year and conduct
pre-audit checks before each audit.

Security Audit Remediation
Upon the completion of the audit, the challenging work begins. Remediation works are time-consuming, and often a company does not have the resources to complete the job as directed by the auditors, especially where retesting is a concern. Our experienced team can assist the client in remediation activities so that they can meet the closure requirements set by the auditors and meet the organization's global audit and risk closure deadline.
