From Advisory Institute

KPMG Advisory Institute


Event Overview

Join KPMG LLP (KPMG) for a “Clarified attestation standards – SSAE 18” webcast on Wednesday, March 1st, to learn about SSAE 18 and its impact on your Service Organization and your Service Organization Control (SOC) reports.

Many of the revisions under SSAE 18 that impact SOC reports are simply a re-emphasis of a requirement, such as topics related to complementary user entity controls and use of the work of internal audit. However, there are also requirements that are new under SSAE 18, including the need for complementary subservice organization controls, and the requirement for the Service Auditor to evaluate evidence around the completeness and accuracy of information produced by the Service Organization.

Throughout this webcast KPMG will share examples of methods for Service Organizations to adopt the changes under SSAE 18, and how to engage your Service Auditor to help in that process.

Featured speakers include KPMG IT Audit and Assurance Professionals Chris Mottram, Dave Palmer, Kate Gionta, and Jessica Thompson.
