SSAE16 Compliance

The SSAE16 audit minimizes the need for multiple sets of auditors to separately examine the same set of controls that govern a third party's services. "SAS" is an acronym for Statement on Auditing Standards, which are standards issued by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants.
