Statement on Standards for Attestation Engagements (SSAE) reports are required to be reviewed as part of Attestation Engagements, however, organizations can gleam great value from these reports if the appropriate level of review is performed and the proper questions are asked. 

 

During this course we discuss the evolution of the report from SSAE No. 16 to No. 18, critical components of the report, recommendations for reviewing processes and analysis to be performed over testing and test conclusions.  Additionally, we explore the report’s role in today’s cloud computing environment. Lastly, we discuss valuable uses for the SSAE report, beyond checking the audit requirement box. 

Learning Objectives

  • Recognize the differences between Statement on Standards for Attestation Engagements (SSAE) No. 16 versus SSAE No. 18. 
  • Explore Cloud Computing and the role of the SSAE 18 report.
  • Identify critical components of the SSAE report.
  • Discover processes and procedures for analyzing report processes, testing methodologies and results of test procedures.

I like that this course covered more of timelines, when a report should be obtained, how frequent as well as the review and acceptance of the report using the template by management, no other coursed touches on those topics very helpful.
