Important Points Regarding SOC 1 SSAE 18 Audits

Conduct a Readiness Assessment: Understanding, assessing – and correcting – internal control issues before the actual SOC 1 SSAE 18 Type 1 audit begins is essential, and that’s exactly what you’ll receive with NDNB’s readiness assessment. It’s about determining scope, identifying issues, and putting in a plan for correcting one’s internal control environment in the hopes of receiving a clean bill of health when it’s audit time!

It’s also important to have an asset inventory in place – specifically – a record of all your information systems, such as networking devices (i.e., firewalls, routers, switches, etc.), servers (i.e., physical and virtual), along with any other I.T. systems owned and operated by your organization.

Why? First and foremost, it’s a best practice to simply know what systems you have, where they are located, their use and purpose, along with other information. Second, auditors will request a list of I.T. systems for hoping to better assess and understand your environment, thus, they’ll need such a list for determining scope and selecting samples for testing.

Determine any ICFR Applicability: Are you performing financially related activities and transactions for clients – if so – you’ll need to assess these processes – and related controls – within your SOC 1 SSAE 18 Type 1 assessment. Keep in mind that SOC 1 SSAE 18 Type 1 reports are performed on service organizations that have a true and credible relationship to the ICFR component – Internal Controls over Financial Reporting.

Think Third-Party Administrators (TPA), payroll companies, banking and actuarial – anything related to services being performed by a service organization that can impact the financial reporting for a client essentially requires a SOC 1 SSAE 18 Type 1 assessment to be performed. You’ll thus need to speak with a qualified CPA firm in helping you assess your ICFR components, so contact Christopher Nickell today at This email address is being protected from spambots.

Expect Remediation: It’s important to remember that remediating issues and problems found during the readiness assessment is what ultimately ensure a successful SOC 1 SSAE 18 Type 1 audit. From drafting documentation to helping implement system changes, remediation is more than likely for almost every SOC 1 SSAE 18 Type 1 candidate, and that’s because almost every business has something they can improve upon from an internal control perspective. As to the time and effort needed in remediation, that depends entirely on what the outcome of one’s SOC 1 SSAE 18 Type 1 readiness assessment findings are. Luckily, NDNB offers numerous tools for remediation.
