What is Coral approach to successful SSAE 18 implementation/attestation?
There are broadly five phases to implementation and attestation.
Phase I – Scope and enterprise risk determination – this phase of ssae 18 attestation/ISAE 3402 includes identification of contractual risks/enterprise risks. Also that part of the organization which needs to be covered which needs control prioritization.
Phase II – Gap Analysis – In this phase of SSAE 18 compliance we determine the degree of controls existing, and gaps leading to individual recommendations.
Phase III - SSAE 18 Implementation / measurement journey through definition of policy/procedure/documentation on one hand and the implementation of the gaps on the other. This ensures control principles are implemented in the organisation DNA.
Phase IV – SSAE 18 Internal Audit or Testing controls is the process of verifying successful implementation, on one hand, and the inclusion of security principle in business lifecycle on the other.
Phase V – Final SSAE 18 attestation - The final phase in which a US based CPA firm attests and issues the SSAE 18 report. Depending on the scope either a ssae 18 type i or ssae 18 type ii report is issues.
