Service organizations in Canada, or organizations with Canadian clients, need to provide comfort to their clients and regulators on the security and controls in place at their organization. The CSAE 3416 Service Organization Report is intended for just that purpose. Auditwerx is a leading provider of Canadian, International, and U.S. assurance engagements for service businesses.
Our simple CSAE 3416 auditing process makes it easy for any size organization to receive the accreditation they need to build trust with their clients. Our experienced auditors will help you align your compliance efforts across frameworks, working around your business needs for an easy and efficient assessment experience.
The CSAE 3416 (formerly CICA 5970) is the Canadian equivalent of the AICPA SSAE 18 audit compliance standard.
Are you new to the CSAE 3416 reporting process? Security compliance and requirements might seem overwhelming, but not when you have the right partner to guide you through. Our experienced team, combined with our unique “hands on” preparation method, limits guesswork and helps you to quickly prepare for a successful CSAE 3416 examination.
Every examination we perform is completed with your end goals in mind. Our communication protocols provide for frequent contact with you throughout the engagement period in order to facilitate delivery on your expected timeline.
Communication is essential in completing a compliance report and it starts in the planning process. Our planning begins with a kickoff call. The kickoff call is used to make introductions, identify key players, and points of contact. We also begin the process of understanding the services on which we will be providing an opinion. Where a readiness assessment has been requested, we establish the dates for the readiness work. In readiness, we assess the data flow of the services, identify controls, and provide a gap analysis of controls that may need implementation or improvement. The planning and readiness process is critical to creating open communication designed to obtain maximum efficiencies that will be realized in the reporting process.
