SOC consultant here. For a SOC 1 audit you can test just ITGC or create and add special controls for other processes. These are usually things like reconciliation but generally could be any business process. These would be new control objectives so they might affect the cost of your audit.

I feel the SOC 1 isn't that great of an audit in practice. SOC 1's usually appeal to established small and medium companies and these companies rarely have that great of a foundation (bad processes and are not on any form of framework) but you adapt the SOC 1 for them so the methodology used is much different than you would find in any other standard audit.

You will test GITCs and ITACs when supporting an audit. You could be involved in any number of consulting projects from controls integration, system implementations, to tech diligence and more when not supporting audits.

Whats the difference between itgcs and itcas? My friend is currently on engangment and he said that he test controls of client and had some experience with itgcs but not a whole lot, Im guessing he has been testing itacs?

Got it I think they test alot of it Dependencies

You will just take screenshots and email engineers that don't respond
