I hope you're doing well. I watched the ISO 27001 Lead Auditor Exam training videos and found them to be very useful! Thank you for offering this free training. I am leading the ISO 27001 internal audit efforts at my company for the first time this year and wanted to seek your guidance. Our company's ISMS is ISO 27001 certified and we also have a SOC 2 Type 1 certification.
1. Are we required to include the SOC2 controls in the ISO 27001 Statement of Applicability?
2. If we were to add all of the SOC2 controls this year, would all these controls be tested during this year's external surveillance audit? I'm planning out the scope of the internal audit and which controls to test, but we have limited resources and time. It seems duplicative to me to include the SOC2 controls since those are tested independently as part of the SOC2 audit. I understand an internal audit is not required for the SOC2 certification, but I see the benefit of performing an internal review to identify issues that could be mitigated before the SOC2 cert audit.
