An IT framework is key to a successful audit

Successful organizations understand the benefits of information technology (IT) and use this knowledge to drive their shareholders’ value. They recognize IT as a major enabler of the business, the need to comply with increasing regulatory compliance demands and the benefits of managing risk effectively. To aid organizations in successfully meeting today’s business challenges, the IT Governance Institute® (ITGI) has published version 4.1 of Control Objectives for Information and related Technology (COBIT®). Entercomp can provide guidance in tailoring COBIT® to meet you business needs. COBIT® enables clear policy development and good practice for IT control throughout organizations. COBIT® 4.1—emphasizes regulatory compliance, and helps organizations increase the value attained from IT.

 

SAS 70 SSAE 16

Why You Need a SAS 70 or SSAE 16
Entities and corporations must perform due diligence and ongoing monitoring of the confidentiality, integrity and safety of their data when it is being handled by a third party.  SAS 70 and SSAE 16 audits provide assurance by properly documenting and testing the internal controls of the service organizations.

If you are an organization providing outsourced services or a qualified custodian under the investment act of 1940 you may be required to obtaine a SAS 70  or SSAE 16 audit report.

Working with our partners at Carr, Riggs, and Ingram LLC we can deliver SAS 70 Types I & II and SSAE 16 reviews in accordance with standards established by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants often at prices below industry rates.
