For companies using outsourced service providers for payroll processing (ADP, PayChex, Ceridian), data center hosting (365 Main, Equinix) and software-as-a-service applications (NetSuite, Avalara, Salesforce.com), SSAE 16 reports are a fact of life. In this step-by-step course, learn to review the key elements of SSAE 16 reports for your company. We will share a template to address user control considerations and document controls that your company relies on.
