RegScale reduced SOC 2 Type 2 audit preparation time by 94%, compressing nearly 400 hours of manual work into less than 25 hours by leveraging its own continuous controls monitoring platform.

Challenge: achieve SOC 2 Type 2 certification with limited time and staff

A SOC 2 Type 2 auditor’s report assesses the ongoing effectiveness and operation of an organization’s controls over an extended period, typically six or twelve months.

In a manual environment—using spreadsheets, word documents or similar files—the level of effort to expand to a continuous monitoring program for SOC 2 Type 2 can be substantial. This involves continuously gathering evidence, assessing controls, fixing any identified problems, and updating documentation, and that’s before the auditors show up. Preparations also involve collecting reports and other data for the auditors, responding to their interviews, and fielding their information requests and follow-up questions.

Completing an initial SOC 2 Type 2 takes an estimated 400 more hours, including implementing its ongoing aspects. This preparation can be especially burdensome for an organization that has limited people resources—such as a start-up, like RegScale.

Solution: RegScale’s continuous controls monitoring and automation

Building off its initial SOC 2 Type 1 certification and leveraging its own continuous controls monitoring (CCM) platform, RegScale easily and quickly implemented automated evidence collection, assessments, and remediation tools to prepare for and respond to external auditors.

Continuous controls monitoring enables real-time status and insights, RegScale’s platform automates everything—workflows, evidence collection, readiness assessments, and remediation. This establishes a one-stop compliance truth, with seamless collaboration between the organization and auditors.

Result: achieved SOC 2 Type 2 compliance within less than 25 hours

RegScale slashed what is typically a months-long effort into less than a month. The company successfully completed the SOC 2 Type 2 with less than 25 hours of internal effort. We reduced 94% through workflow automation, delivered auditor evidence instantly through the platform, and eliminated the “back and forth” typically experienced in audits.

For RegScale, this was more than achieving our first SOC 2 Type 2 certification. The real value lies in delivering continuously on the standards underlying SOC 2. It also fulfills the promise of “always audit-ready,” real-time evidence of security, risk, and compliance controls. RegScale continues to progress against its commitment to maintaining a secure and trustworthy operational environment for our customers and their data.
