6 The Explosive Growth of SAS 70 Audits

The Explosive Growth of SAS 70 Audits

It once was a little-known auditing standard, but much has changed of late for Statement on Auditing Standards No. 70, more commonly known as SAS 70. Over the past five years, the number of SAS 70 audits has grown explosively due to the massive wave of regulatory compliance mandates and legislation unleashed in this country. From Sarbanes Oxley (SOX) to Gramm Leach Bliley (GLBA) and many other requirements, the SAS 70 auditing standard is alive and well, often used as the main "go to" compliance audit for many of these well-known regulatory compliance laws.

How well recognized are SAS 70 audits? Many industry professionals regard SAS 70 Type I and SAS 70 Type II audits as being among the most highly recognized and well known auditing standards for meeting compliance mandates in the world. From South Africa to the EU, the SAS 70 standard is a powerful and respected auditing tool. In short, SAS 70 audits have widely become known as the "de facto" auditing standard throughout the United States and the world regarding the reporting on an organization's internal controls related to the aspects of their infrastructure that impact the use, transmission or storage of regulated financial data.
