Snap polls reflect questions posed by members of the Celent Executive Research Panel, a group of C level executives in the insurance industry. This question came about from a member who is looking at their own SOC compliance strategy. Twenty seven insurers responded to this survey over the course of three days, April 13 – April 15, 2021

The question that was posed was:


An insurer is increasingly getting questions from larger agencies looking for their SOC report - typically agencies that are bank owned. This insurer is working to determine their own SOC compliance strategy and is trying to understand the time and cost involved as they need to respond to the agents.


•Do you have a security operations center?

–Is it outsourced or insourced?

–Do you provide off hours support?


•Are you also getting requests for SOC reports?

–Ifso, from who? Regulators, agencies, banks, creditors, others?

•Are you currently SOC compliant?

–Which level of SOC audit have you completed?

–When did you first become compliant?

–What were the drivers for completing the SOC audit?
