SOC 2 Audit Inventory


The Dash SOC 2 Audit Inventory Report provides teams with a way to automatically gather current internal controls related to SOC 2 trust service criteria. Teams can utilize these reports to track evidence for security audits and questionnaires and share this evidence with security auditors to streamline the SOC 2 audit process.

  • Reports can be created in the Report Center.

  • Reports are created for the current date they are generated and reflect the current passing controls/scans and related policies.
