Answer: While SOC has the purpose to assist in reporting to customers that an organization has met established security criteria, ISO 27001 assists an organization in a broader way, by providing a framework which helps to ensure security criteria and controls that are established according organizations needs, and that they are properly verified and improved over the time. So, in a way, SOC is covered by ISO 27001, and you might tell them that by adopting ISO 27001 they will not only cover the reporting aspects of SOC but also will be able to justify any adjustments required by the business needs as well as respond properly to changes in the risk scenario and ineffective controls.
