SSAE SOC Audits: Auditee - Auditor - Assessor

Audits of "SOC" (Service Organization Controls) have been governed starting on May 1, 2017 by the application of "SSAE" (Statement of Standards for Attestation Engagements) 18. This new AICPA Standard replaces SSAE 16, just as SSAE 16 replaced SAS 70. This new standard will require the users of these reports to change their compliance programs to fit the new reporting standards.

Learn the best practices for preparing, conducting and assessing audit compliance reports under SSAE 18 Auditing Standard.

This program takes a hard look at Service Organization Controls (SOC).

This three-day CPE seminar designed to look at SSAE 18's SOC requirements from all three viewpoints:
- The Service Organization,
- The External Auditor,
- The Report User.

The materials provide an understanding of an effective program for the creation of a system of internal controls within a service organization and their assessment under SSAE 18 based audits. It also provides the Report User with insights into what does this really mean?

It was created to allow service organizations to create effective internal controls to be audited by External Auditors. It trains the report reviewer to assess the SSAE 18 Audit Report against their needs from a service provider.

This program will help your organization can develop and maintain an effective SSAE 18 program to comply with the Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX) Section 404 or other similar regulations. Compliance efforts will be changing as SSAE 18 goes into effect.

Our attendees learn that a top-down, risk based approach to SSAE 18 concerning service provider preparation, external audit execution and report assessment. The presentation includes:
- Creating a Service Organization Risk Assessment
- Evaluating Client Requirements
- Determining Regulatory Implications
- Defining Service Delivery Controls
- Creating Written Policies & Procedures - Communicating Standards to Service Staff
- Managing Vendors
- Maintaining Physical Access Controls
- Maintaining Security Controls
- Maintaining SSAE Standards Compliance
- Maintaining Availability Controls
