The American Institute of Certified Public Accountants developed the Statement on Auditing Standards SSAE 16 (formerly SAS70), which allows a company to provide a third-party certification of its internal controls to customers. Organizations that successfully complete a SSAE 16 audit have been through an in-depth audit of their control activities, including controls over IT and related processes.
