About SSAE 16 and SOC Report Types
SSAE 16 superseded SAS 70 in 2011 as the audit standard for service organization auditors. SSAE 16 was adopted by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) with the goal of establishing a more uniform quality reporting standard.
“Service Organization Controls” (SOCs) refer to the reports supplied to a company’s internal auditors and/or regulators following an audit. SOC reports are identified as 1, 2, or 3, depending on the focus and extent of process control testing . Many consider the SOC 1 the “Gold Standard ” report for its depth, rigor and detail.
