SOA: Creating a Secure Business Environment

A Statement of Applicability (SOA) is a document that outlines the security controls and measures that an organization has implemented to protect its information systems and data assets. It is used to provide evidence of the organization's commitment to security and compliance. It typically includes a list of applicable security controls and measures, along with a description of how they are implemented and monitored. The SOA also includes a description of the organization's security policies, procedures, and guidelines, as well as any applicable laws and regulations. The SOA is typically reviewed and updated on a regular basis to ensure that the organization's security measures remain up to date and relevant.
