About SSAE 16 (SOC 1) Reports
SSAE 16 (SOC1) audits, which have effectively replaced SAS 70 reports, are in accordance with Statement on Standards for Attestation Engagements (SSAE) No. 16, Reporting on Controls at a Service Organization. SOC 1 reports retain the original purpose of SAS 70 by providing a means of reporting on the system of internal control for purposes of complying with internal control over financial reporting. SOC 1 reports are restricted-use reports for the following areas:
- Management of the service organization (the company who has the SOC 1 performed),
- User entities of the service organization (service organization’s clients), and
- The user entities’ financial auditors (user auditor). The report can assist the user entities’ financial auditors with laws and regulations such as the Sarbanes-Oxley Act. A SOC 1 enables the user auditor to perform risk assessment procedures, and if a Type II report is performed, to assess the risk of material misstatement of financial statement assertions affected by the service organization’s processing.
