The Importance of Remediation for SOC 1 SSAE 18 Compliance

One of the biggest operational challenges that businesses encounter during the SOC 1 auditing process is remediation; correcting the gaps and deficiencies found during the readiness assessment that can sometimes require a tremendous amount of work. Companies are generally extremely good and proficient in what they do from an operational perspective – if not, they’d probably be out of business – but documenting internal controls is generally not high on the list, and it’s one reason gaps will surface prior to an audit.

What’s worse is that many businesses often fail to perform any type of meaningful remediation prior to the commencement of a SOC 1 SSAE 18 audit, and that’s where the challenges begin. Imagine trying to collect audit evidence for controls that are failing or not in place – it happens all the time – and it’s why spending a few extra dollars on the front-end will save you thousands more over the course of an audit – trust on this – we’ve been auditing for decades and are being completely transparent in this statement. Don’t get yourself into a nightmarish situation because you failed to plan accordingly – perform a SOC 1 SSAE 18 scoping & readiness assessment today.

What WDC Businesses Need to Know About SOC 1

Before you actually begin the SOC 1 SSAE 18 process – either a Type 1 or a Type 2 – it’s important to gain a strong technical understanding of many facets of the assessment framework itself. Let’s address some of the most pressing questions and comments we receive regarding SOC 1 SSAE 18 compliance below:

1. SOC 1 vs. SOC 2: The main difference between SOC 1 and SOC 2 is that SOC 1 reporting is often geared towards businesses performing functions that have financial impact considerations for their clients, while SOC 2 is aimed at technology companies – data centers, SaaS entities, and more. With SOC 1 SSAE 18 compliance, the concept of ICFR – Internal Controls Over Financial Reporting – should form the basis of the assessment. More specifically, if you as a service organization are performing critical functions for your clients that could impact their financial reporting, then SOC 1 SSAE 18 is the preferred assessment to perform. This means you’ll need to work with a CPA firm in helping identify what the relevant ICFR control objectives are for purposes of assessing and ultimately testing of them.

SSAE 18 SOC 1 Compliance & the ICFR Concept

A background on SSAE 18 SOC 1 compliance ultimately requires an understanding and introduction to the AICPA Service Organization Control (SOC) framework and the concept of ICFR; Internal Controls over Financial Reporting. SSAE 18 – short for Statement on Standards for Attestation Engagements number 18, effectively replaced the antiquated and often misused historical SAS 70 and SSAE 16 auditing standards.

Now’s the time for you to develop a clearer and more wide-ranging sense of what, exactly, SSAE 18 is and what it requires in terms of auditing and reporting. There are two important points you should be aware of as you navigate the challenging new landscape of SOC compliance in the SSAE 18 era. First, SSAE 18 is part of the AICPA SOC framework, and, second, SSAE 18 assessments are performed on service organizations exhibiting a true and credible nexus to the ICFR concept.

NDNB also offers SOC 1 and SOC 2 audit reports for businesses using Amazon AWS, Microsoft Azure and Google GCP.
