Glossary » SOC 2 » SSAE 18


SSAE 18 is a set of updates to the SOC (Service Organization Control) report standards, replacing the previous version, SSAE 16, and the older SAS 70 report. These enhancements aim to improve the quality and usefulness of SOC reports. With these updates, companies will be required to take more responsibility for identifying and categorizing risks and properly managing their relationships with third-party vendors. These changes will help address any gaps identified in the reports of many service organizations, although they are relatively manageable.
