EI3PA compliance, certification, and assessment services are provided by NDB Accountants & Consultants under the direction of senior cyber security specialist and PCI-QSA Charles Denyer. Contact Charles today at 1-800-277-5415, ext. 705, or via email at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. to learn more about EI3PA compliance.

Experian’s EI3PA compliance and certification is targeted towards almost any organization that stores, processes and/or transmits confidential data provided by Experian themselves. Generally speaking, Experian provides highly sensitive and confidential information, often known as Personally Identifiable Information (PII), and then mandates it be protected in accordance with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI DSS) mandates. From Requirement 1 to Requirement 12, the mandates in place for PCI DSS compliance effectively apply to Experian data, hence the reason Experian themselves has adopted this framework for information security.  Learn more about NDB's EI3PA expertise and the complimentary EI3PA Policy Packets we provide to our clients.

Again, because the framework for EI3PA is essentially identical to that of the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI DSS) mandates, it also means that information security and operational specific policies and procedures need to be in place, for which NDB Advisory offers as part of each EI3PA engagement. Call Charles today at 1-800-277-5415, ext. 705, or via email at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. to learn more about EI3PA compliance.

Much like the PCI DSS standards for cardholder data, EI3PA compliance will continue to grow in the coming years as more and more organizations store, process, and/or transmit highly sensitive and confidential customer information for Experian. EI3PA compliance, just like the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI DSS) is largely about documented and highly formalized policies, procedures, and processes, for which NDB can assist every step of the way. Call Charles today at 1-800-277-5415, ext. 705, or via email at This email address is being protected from spambots.

PCI DSS compliance, SOC reporting, and HIPAA | HITECH compliance - call them the “gang of three” - they’re the most notable and well-known regulatory compliance laws, legislation and industry specific mandates affecting businesses today. What’s also interesting to note is that a large number of companies often undertake any two of the three (sometimes all three) compliance initiatives, creating auditing nightmares and skyrocketing costs. Your solution - creating audit efficiencies by combining many of the deliverables needed for PCI DSS compliance, SOC reporting, and HIPAA | HITECH compliance into one fully comprehensive assessment. By using the services of a well-qualified, highly-experienced firm - such as NDB Accountants & Consultants - organizations can reduce costs, save time, yet still meet strict compliance mandates.  Learn more about NDB's compliance expertise and the complimentary SOC 2 Policy Packets, along with our complimentary PCI DSS Policy Packets and also SOC 1 Policy Packets we provide to our clients for each enagement. It truly makes a difference for each audit!

Look at some of the main areas for all three (3) of these compliance initiatives - user access, network security, operational policies and procedures - it’s an endless list of overlapping controls and various mandates for information security specific documentation. For example, when conducting assessment and evidence collection for Requirements 7 and 8 for PCI regarding access rights, it just makes sense to look at similar requirements under HIPAA Subpart C (Privacy and Security), along with SOC 1 and/or SOC 2 reporting for access rights. There’s no reason to “reinvent the wheel” or spending unneeded hours conducting stand-alone audits and assessments for each of the “gang of three” - it’s all about efficiency, and that’s exactly what NDB provides with talented and well-skilled auditors.

For many years, we’ve been advocating to our clients – and to the business community as a whole – to implement audit efficiencies that ultimately save thousands of dollars and hundreds of precious operational man-hours. It works for our clients and it can work for you. Call and speak with Christopher Nickell, CPA, at 1-800-277-5415, ext. 706 or email him at This email address is being protected from spambots.

NDB Accountants & Consultants are proven and trusted PCI DSS compliance, SOC reporting, and HIPAA | HITECH compliance auditors and assessors.

What are the similarities and difference when it comes to SSAE 16 vs. ISAE 3402? That's a question posed often by interested parties seeking learn more about the SSAE 16 AICPA attest standard and the IFAC ISAE 3402 assurance standard. They both have been developed for purposes of reporting on controls at service organizations, and they both also are a result of collaborative efforts by the AICPA and IFAC.

As for the similarities, notable points are the following:

1. Both SSAE 16 and ISAE 3402 reports can be "Type 1" or "Type 2"
2. They both require a description of their "system", along with requiring management of the service organization to provide a written statement of "assertion".
3. They are issued by Certified Public Accountants (CPA) and Chartered Accountants (CA) - official designations in the field of accountancy.
Additionally, both standards closely align themselves in many other areas, and they both originated out of a collaborative effort by notable entities (AICPA, IFAC) to create more globally accepted accounting principles. ISAE 3402 was going to move forward, and the AICPA – already having plans to retire the aging SAS 70 auditing standard – put forth the SSAE 16 standard that contained many elements of ISAE 3402. In fairness, no one standard was really “ahead” of the other – rather –a joint effort was initiated to create both SSAE 16 and ISAE 3402. Additionally, they’re both experiencing great success, as witnessed by the overwhelming acceptance and adoption of SSAE 16 and ISAE 3402 on the global business arena.  Learn more about NDB's compliance expertise and the complimentary SOC 2 Policy Packets, along with our complimentary PCI DSS Policy Packets and also SOC 1 Policy Packets we provide to our clients for each enagement. It truly makes a difference for each audit!

SSAE 16 & ISAE 3402 Differences worth Noting
But there are differences for which interested parties should be aware of, such as the following:

  • Intentional Acts by Service Organization Personnel
  • Anomalies
  • Direct Assistance
  • Subsequent Events
  • Statement Restricting Use of the Service Auditor’s Report
  • Documentation Completion
  • Engagement Acceptance and Continuance
  • Disclaimer of Opinion
  • Elements of the SSAE Report that are not Required in the ISAE 3402 Report

NDB Accountants & Consultants | SSAE 16 & ISAE 3402 Reporting Compliance Experts
These aforementioned areas can be explained to you in a comprehensive manner by a competent and well-qualified PCAOB CPA firm, such as NDB Accountants & Consultants. In all honestly, most of these difference are technical in nature, along with being the responsibility of the practitioner (i.e. CPA or CA) conducting the actual SSAE 16 or ISAE 3402 assessment. If you really want to learn about these technical differences, then visit the official AICPA bookstore and purchase the following document: “Reporting on Controls at a Service Organization – SSAE 16”. Call 1-800-277-5415, ext. 706, and speak with Christopher G. Nickell, CPA, to discuss NDB’s SSAE 16 and ISAE 3402 competitive, fixed-fee services for Type 1 and Type 2 reporting.

North Carolina | Charlotte SOC 1 2 3 Compliance Auditors | SSAE 16 | AT 101 | Fixed Fees
It’s important to note that one of the most essential requirements for SOC 1, SOC 2, and SOC 3 reporting is the ability for service organizations to have numerous operational and information security policies and procedures in place – essential forms that speak to the practice and application of one’s entire I.T. landscape. Companies are generally very good at what they do - after all - they wouldn’t be in business if that’s the case. Yet with continued growth of customers and service lines, one thing often gets left behind is documented operational and information security policies and procedures. NDB has years of experience developing such documentation, from commonly needed network security policies and procedures to more specific operational and business forms, checklists, and other supporting material. And because business models obviously differ from one organization to the other, NDB has hundreds of high-quality templates to pick and choose from.
