      About this Event
      Audits of "SOC" (System and 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. SSAE 18 is more comprehensive than the prior standards.

      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 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 its assessment under SSAE 18 based audits. It also provides the Report User with insights into what does this assessment really mean?

      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.
