Event Details

Course Summary: We have two different exciting topics we are discussing at our January meeting.  First, we will discuss the new SSAE 16 guidance and the related SOC 1 and SOC 2 reports, with the focus primarily being on the users of these reports, although we will discuss them from a service organization's point of view briefly.  We also will talk about Vendor Management in general.  Our second topic is Corporate Governance, which will be both a presentation and a discussion of hypothetical cases.
