How it works


Gather Essential Information

We start by collecting foundational details about each potential vendor, such as corporate address, key contacts, and a brief description of their services. This helps us understand the vendor's business identity and operational scope. 


Analyze SOC Report

Our team conducts a detailed review of your vendor's SOC report, focusing on key areas such as subservice organizations, organization and administration, information systems, data center and resiliency, control objectives and activities, and complementary user entity controls (CUECs).


Consolidate and Review Findings

Collected data and assessment results are consolidated to provide a clear picture of the vendor’s control environment. This overview allows for an initial assessment of the vendor's reliability and compliance. 


Facilitate Informed Decision-Making

You receive a comprehensive document detailing the findings from the SOC assessment, available directly on the Venminder platform, and is downloadable to easily share offline. This information aids your organization’s leaders in making informed decisions.
