Kaye-Smith’s SSAE No. 16, SOC-2 audit is well underway

In 2010, the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants issued Statement 16 on Standards for Attestation Engagements (SSAE No. 16) which has now become effective for service auditors’ reports.

Kaye-Smith examined the standard and chose Service Organization Control (SOC) Report No. 2 or SOC-2. SOC-2 closely matches the reports that Kaye-Smith has issued under all previous SAS 70 audits.

SOC-2 reports on controls relevant to security, availability, processing integrity, confidentiality, or privacy.

Kaye-Smith is completing Phase One for the testing period of April through June. Phase Two, and a completed report (which is a helpful report for use by our user organizations and their auditors) is expected shortly after the end of September 2011.

We would like to extend a special thank you to all responsible Kaye-Smith departments and employees who have – and will – provide all the necessary, accurate and timely information that is required for an audit of this scale.
