Event Details

When you see the SOC2 certification, it embows a sense of confidence that the supplier will keep your data secure. What you don’t see is how they get to that point. The dirty side of compliance. The pain of getting certified but also keeping that certification year after year.

If you or your organization is interested in hearing more about “The Dirty side of SOC”, join us on October 14th where CORE and Quartet will be delivering an interactive member-only workshop where we will discuss:

  1. Real cost of getting SOC2 certified
  2. Cost of staying compliant
  3. Organizational change as a result of getting certified
  4. How SOC2 stacks up in the compliance landscape

In preparation for the workshop, each participant will be asked to complete a survey, with participants’ answers helping frame the discussion in the session.



To give participants a realistic sense of both what’s involved in getting SOC2 certified and what it takes to stay compliant.


Session Lead

Rob Bracey & Andrew Walsh from Quartet Service will talk you through their experience in passing three SOC2 audits and what is required to stay compliant every year.
