Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) September 25, 2013
SSAE 16 Professionals has long realized and responded to the lack of quality educational resources readily available in the marketplace. Especially with the transition from SAS 70 to SSAE 16, the only thing that seems to be fully understood among service organizations is the level of confusion regarding SOC 1 versus SOC 2 and Type I versus Type II reports. In fact, many service organizations think a SOC 1 is equivalent to Type I and a SOC 2 is equivalent to a Type II. “This confusion is well founded. In fact, many of our clients and client prospects had no idea in regards to the differences and variations of these reports,” according Jim Jimenez, the Managing Partner of SSAE 16 Professionals.
With the demand for both SSAE 16 (SOC 1) and SOC 2 audits on the rise, many service organizations are confused and uncertain as to which audit best serves their needs. Tim Roncevich, Partner and Practice leader for SSAE 16 Professionals states: “there is a sizeable knowledge gap coupled with the lack of educational material and resources available to bridge this gap. As a nationally recognized CPA firm, we assume the role of an educator by developing educational resources for service organizations and making them available within the entire marketplace.”
As a leading national provider of SSAE 16 (SOC 1), SOC 2 and other IT compliance audits, SSAE 16 Professionals is proud to release its SSAE 16 vs SOC 2 and Type I vs Type II video. This educational video is one of many within the firm’s video library in response to the educational and knowledge gap that exists in the marketplace. The video offers clarification on the differences between an SSAE 16 (SOC 1) and SOC 2 audit and also describes the applicability of Type I and Type II as they relate to both audits.
