Glossary of Compliance
Our list of curated compliance glossary offers everything you to know about compliance in one place.
SAS 70 is a standard developed by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) to evaluate the security controls of service organizations. It guides them and their auditors to demonstrate the effectiveness of their controls to their clients and their clients’ auditors.
SAS 70 is currently replaced by the Statement on Standards for Attestation Engagements (SSAE) 18, which is the current standard for evaluating the controls of service organizations. While the SSAE 18 standard includes the same types of evaluations as SAS 70, it is updated to align with current industry best practices and to reflect changes in technology and the business environment.
Today, SOC 2 audits follow the SSAE 18 standard rather than SAS 70.
