Ann Arbor, MI (PRWEB) April 6, 2009
Online Tech & UHY LLP have partnered with Automation Alley for a seminar exclusively for CIOs and IT Directors of publicly held companies or firms servicing publicly held companies on how to survive a SAS 70 Audit.
SAS 70 is a nationally recognized audit standard for evaluating process and security control procedures throughout the data center. A SAS 70audit is done by a CPA firm and a data security expert with experience in data center and network security.
Certain types of data, by regulation, require a SAS 70 audit. Specifically, Sarbanes-Oxley calls for testing of internal IT controls that relate to financial reporting, even for outsourced IT functions. HIPAA also has specific data handling controls that can be confirmed with a SAS-70 audit report. PCI and CISP compliance can be more easily accomplished by starting with a SAS-70 audit.
Online Tech has successfully thrived through a number of SAS 70 audits. They recently completed an audit on all their data centers and have assisted a number of colocation and dedicated server clients survive their own SAS 70 audits. It's these experiences from both the auditee and the service provider's perspective that has helped identify the five key elements for not only surviving a SAS 70 audit, but thriving as a result of the audit.
