Statement on Auditing Standards SSAE-16 (formerly SAS-70), Service Organizations, is a widely recognized auditing standard developed by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA). A service auditor's examination performed in accordance with SSAE-16 (also commonly referred to as a "SAS 70 Audit") is widely recognized, because it represents that a service organization has been through an in-depth audit of its control objectives and control activities, which often includes control over information technology and related processes.
In today's global economy, service organizations or service providers must demonstrate that they have adequate controls and safeguards when they host or process data belonging to their customers. In addition, the requirements of Section 404 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 make SSAE-16 audits even more important to the process of reporting on the effectiveness of internal control over financial reporting.
