A SSAE 16 not only helps you run a more efficient operation, it is a key differentiator in the marketplace and an assurance for your audited clients that your internal controls are effective.

If you provide services that can have a significant impact on your clients’ financial statements, it’s vital to the continued success of your business that you conduct a SSAE 16 examination and obtain a Service Organization Control Report 1 (SOC 1SM).

The change to SSAE 16 also provides alternative Service Organization Control Reports (SOC 2SM  or SOC 3SM ) on the non-financial reporting controls established in the AICPA’s “Trust Services Criteria and Principles,” which include security, availability, processing integrity, confidentiality and privacy.

Whether your organization needs to transition from a SAS 70 to a SSAE 16 SOC 1SM report, or report on security, availability, processing integrity, confidentiality and privacy in a SOC 2SM or SOC 3SM report, Doeren Mayhew provides knowledge of control reports, recommendations for improved internal control, and the thorough, quality reports you need for your customers.
