|SAS 70 and the Conversion to SSAE 16 (plus SOC 1, 2, and 3)
Since 1992, SAS 70 has been the auditing standard by which service and technology providers are measured with regards to their processes, procedures, controls and safeguards. Many of your clients and prospects depend on SAS 70 reports to make buying decisions and vet technology providers. But effective for audit periods ending on or after June 15, 2011, things are changing. The AICPA has established three Service Organizational Control (SOC) reporting options to replace SAS 70: SOC 1, SOC 2, and SOC 3. Join us to learn:
- Why companies should consider these new standards
- The transition from SAS 70
- The differences between SOC 1, SOC 2 and SOC 3
- How to make the best choice to keep your technology company competitive
