Audits of "SOC" (System and Organization Control) have been in effect since May 1, 2017 through the implementation of AICPA Statement on Standards for Attestation Engagements (SSAE) 18.

This standard replaced SSAE 16, just as SSAE 16 replaced SAS 70, and SAS 70 replaced SAS 44. This SOC audit standard requires the users of SOC audit reports to adjust their compliance programs to fit the SSAE 18 SOC standard. SSAE 18 is more comprehensive than the prior SOC standards.

Learn the best practices for preparing, conducting and assessing SSAE 18 SOC audit reports from our highly experienced instructor who performs these activities.

This program examines the details of the SOC audit process.from planning to performing to documenting to reporting.

This valuable five-morning virtual CPE event is designed to evaluate SSAE 18 SOC requirements from all three viewpoints:
- The Service Organization,
- The External Auditor,
- The Report User.

The materials provide a detailed understanding of an effective program for creating and assessing a system of internal control within an outsourced IT service organization under SSAE 18. It also provides the Report User with insight for interpreting the report and documenting the report review given their user requirements.

We provide guidance for Service Organizations on typical SOC controls and procedures. The event covers guidance for external auditors to allow them and document SOC workpapers and audit reports.

This program will help your organization develop, assess and maintain an effective SSAE 18 SOC program within a Vendor Management Program to comply with the Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX) Section 404, similar regulations (HIPAA, GLBA, etc.) and best practices (COBIT, NIST 800, ITIL, etc.).

Our attendees will learn a top-down, risk-based approach to SSAE 18 SOC compliance. The presentation includes:
- Assessing Organizational Objectives.SOC 1, SOC 2, SOC 3, and the SOC Types
- Selecting SOC 1 Control Objectives and Controls
- Selecting SOC 2 Trust Service Criteria (TSCs) and Controls
- Creating a Service Organization Risk Assessment
- Evaluating Client Requirements
- Determining Regulatory Implications
- Developing Service Delivery Proposals
- Creating, Communicating, and Auditing Policies and Procedures
- Managing Vendors and Subservice Organizations
- Maintaining Physical Access Controls
- Maintaining Logical Security Controls
- Maintaining Change Controls
- Maintaining Backup and Restoration Controls
- Evaluating Control Deficiencies
- Maintaining SSAE Standards Compliance

Seminar Highlights

Fundamental changes have come to Service Organization Control (SOC) reports in the last ten years. In 2011, SAS 70 was superseded by the SSAE 16, and then in May 2017, SSAE 18 become effective.

This move to Statement of Auditing Engagements (SSAE) 18 brings along with it significant updates which strengthen the overall quality of the SOC reports.

You will learn about the SOC framework in this event. Known as Service Organization Control (SOC) reports, the SOC framework is a radical departure from the one-size-fits-all approach held by SAS 70 for approximately twenty (20) years. In short, with three reporting options - SOC 1, SOC 2, and SOC 3 - service organizations have more flexibility and more choices regarding third-party assessments of their control environments. While SOC 1 has quickly become the dominant reporting option, SOC 2 and SOC 3 are extremely viable, especially for many of today's technology companies.

All our experts have years of experience in providing training courses, workshops and consulting on internal controls, internal auditing, information technology, cybersecurity and accounting related subjects. We have focused on SOX, COSO, PCAOB, COBIT, CMMI, GRC, GAAP, IFRS, AICPA, GAO, NAIC, ISO, and IIA Standards. We are your best source for continuing professional education (CPE).

Our programs, live in-person, webinar and on-demand, provide CPE for professionals with CPA, CGA, CIA, CFE, CISA, CMA and CA designations. CCS is focused on providing the best learning programs in using three distinct distribution channels: live in-person events, virtual webinar events and on-demand self-study e-learning.

Corporate Compliance Seminars presents CPE to a range of professionals, auditors, accountants, finance staff, compliance personnel, information technology (IT) professionals, Boards of Directors and Audit Committees. We examine the details of risk management, Sarbanes-Oxley Act compliance, Model Audit Rule (MAR) compliance, auditing, internal controls, cybersecurity and compliance, and fraud prevention and detection.

Within the U.S.A. marketplace, Corporate Compliance Seminars allows the attendee to earn NASBA CPE credit.

Our events focus on the details of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 (SOX), Internal Controls over Financial Reporting (ICFR), Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission (COSO) Internal Control Frameworks, ISACA's Control Objectives over Information Technology (COBIT), Information Technology Infrastructure Library (ITIL), Open Compliance & Ethics Group's (OCEG) Governance, Risk & Compliance (GRC) methodology, PCAOB's Auditing Standard 5 (AS5), AICPA auditing standards, and NAIC regulatory model regulations and acts .

Our live in-person events are generally presented in a small classroom setting with two to five attendees. Over the last few weeks, we have come to the understand we need to provide distant e-learning events. We are now in the process of moving all our content to an online available status. We have created distant e-learning opportunities using both a virtual webinar event approach and on-demand e-learning self-study modules. These two e-learning approaches: webinars and on-demand self-study with extended web access to our content into the global continuing professional development (CPD) marketplace. In the webinar e-learning events we will limit the number of students to maximize the interaction between the live instructor and attendees. The on-demand self-study e-learning modules will be created and offered to meet the NASBA CPE credit requirements .

Our seminars provide CPE for the CPA, CFE, CIA, CISA, auditors and others with effective and engaging internal audit training courses.

Our instructors have had direct experience in the following industries: financial activities, bank, insurance, healthcare, construction, leisure and hospitality, professional and business services, mining and oil & gas extraction, manufacturing, educational, government agencies, transportation, software, technical, hi-tech and agricultural.
