Earlier in 2017, a series of modifications to the audit standards geared to increase the usefulness and quality of System and Organization Controls (SOC) report, have been made. The SSAE 18, which became effective last May 1, 2017 requires companies to take more control and ownership of their own internal controls when identifying and classifying risks. They are also expected to implement a formal and appropriate Third Party Vendor Management Program. The new audit standard also requires additional sections describing the risk assessment process and the role of the Subservice Organizations in the overall operation of the system. These significant changes and modification may create additional burdens to companies but will help address loopholes in the key areas of third-party vendor risk management.
