Auditor Focused Virtual Event

SSAE SOC Audits: Auditee - Auditor - Assessor Training - 20 CPEs



Offered periodically on Monday-Friday in 2021

Audits of "SOC" (System and Organization Controls) has been governed since May 1, 2017 by the application of "SSAE" (Statement of Standards for Attestation Engagements) 18. This AICPA Standard replaced SSAE 16, just as SSAE 16 replaced SAS 70. This SOC audit standard has required the users of SOC audit reports to adjust their compliance programs to fit the new reporting standards. SSAE 18 has proven to be more comprehensive than the prior standards concerning SOC audits.

Learn the best practices for preparing, conducting and assessing audit compliance reports under SSAE 18 Auditing Standard for System and Organization Controls (SOC).

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

This five morning virtual CPE event designed to look at SSAE 18s 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 its assessment under SSAE 18 based audits. It also provides the Report User with insights into what does this assessment 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 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 will 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

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.
