SSAE 16 Data Centers

In today’s global economy, service organizations or service providers must demonstrate that they have adequate controls and safeguards when they host or process data belonging to their customers.

In addition, the requirements of Section 404 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 make SSAE 16 audit reports even more important to the process of reporting on the effectiveness of internal control over financial reporting. The SSAE 16 audit independently verifies the validity and functionality of a Data Center’s control activities and processes.

These control activities and processes are important to customers within the financial, healthcare and insurance sectors, as well as to publicly traded companies who must validate the security of their financial and sensitive information controls. A yearly audit is performed to not only verify that procedures are in place and effective, but that they are maintained.

CfirstHost data centers provide PCI compliant environments, from physical security to information security policies and controls. We also have in-house security and compliance expertise as well as third-party auditing partners to help navigate the often challenging path toward PCI compliance.
