- SSAE 18 – Statement on Standards for Attestation Engagements
This represents the latest compliances standards and supersedes SSAE 16, which effectively replaces SAS 70 as the authoritative guidance for reporting on service organizations. SSAE 16 was drafted with the intention and purpose of updating the US service organization reporting standard so that it mirrors and complies with the new international service organization reporting standard – ISAE 3402.
- SOC – Service Organization Control
SOC reports were created by the American Inst. of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) to set compliance standards and keep pace with the rapid growth of cloud computing and businesses outsourcing their services to third-party providers.
- SOC 1 Type 2 Certified
SOC 1 is a report on controls at a service organization relevant to a user entity's internal control over financial reporting.
- SOC 2 Type 2 Certified
SOC 2 is a report that focuses on controls at a service provider relevant to security, availability, processing integrity, confidentiality, and privacy of a system. It ensures that your data is kept private and secure while in storage and in transit and that it is available for you to access at any time. This is a crucial report for any type of data that you entrust with a third-party provider.
- SOC 1 Type 2 Certified
- GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) Compliant
GDPR is a regulation in EU law on data protection and privacy for all individual citizens of the European Union (EU) and the European Economic Area (EEA). It also addresses the transfer of personal data outside the EU and EEA areas. The GDPR primarily aims to give control to individuals over their personal data and simplify the regulatory environment for international business by unifying regulation within the EU.
Note on Type 1 vs Type 2
A Type 1 audit provides a report of procedures and controls in place at a specified point in time; a Type 2 report has an audit period and provides evidence that an organization has operated its controls over a period of at least 6 months. A Type 2 report also includes a detailed description of the service auditor's tests of controls and results.
