What is Auditor

A professional that examines and evaluates financial information, internal controls, and business processes. A business hires an Auditor to assess compliance security standards like SOC 2, ISO 27001 and PCI DSS. It also helps companies to express an opinion on the fairness of financial statements.

Companies must use a lengthy range of security procedures to comply with compliance criteria. The purpose of an audit is for the auditor to get proof from your organization that the appropriate security measures have been put in place. After the audit is finished, the auditor will provide a report, attestation or certification confirming the security measures in place at your business. Customers, business associates, and other parties with an interest in your security and compliance procedures can use these documents for further reference.
