What is SSAE 16?
SSAE 16 is the successor to SAS 70, an accounting standard developed by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants. During an audit, a third-party will evaluate a service organization’s internal controls and security standards. When an independent auditor conducts the review, they verify that the proper operational controls, procedures, and risk assessments are in place.
SSAE 16 audits controls over information technology and processes related to sensitive data, such as health information and personally identifiable information. The audit process is ongoing; third-party evaluations are regularly scheduled to ensure continued compliance.
Why is SSAE 16 Compliance important?
SSAE 16 Compliance is recognized as one of the most stringent auditing standards for service organizations. A successful audit verification ensures that the company has well-designed and effective controls in place to ensure the accuracy of transactions and privacy of the data being stored and transmitted.
Organizations, which provide services to healthcare companies, are often asked by their clients to have a SSAE 16 audit conducted to ensure that an independent party has examined the controls over the processing of sensitive healthcare information.
A SSAE 16 audit is used by customers, prospective customers, and investors to gain an understanding of the control environment of outsourcing companies. With our company, you can be assured that your data is both safe and secure now and in the future in a place that is SSAE 16 Type 2 compliant.
