SOC Certification Body
#1
Hi Rob, 
Do you know of any SOC Certification Body?
For example, Head of Cybersecurity wants to prove that its SOC is an advanced SOC with all the top-notch technologies, processes, and people.
Is there any well-known third party that can certify this?

Thanks!
Best regards,
Darren

Hi Darren,

I'm not aware of any such certification. There are consulting companies that have proprietary maturity models that they use for assessment. This sort of maturity assessment could be used as 'proof' of an advanced SOC. Of course, the SOC-CMM could be used for the same purpose. Objectivity can be introduced by having the assessment conducted by a third party. In the Netherlands, there is already a company doing SOC-CMM assessments. There may be others that I am not aware of. The advantage of using the 'open' SOC-CMM for assessments is that you can avoid 'vendor lock-in' due to proprietary confidential models.

Regards,
Rob.
