SSAE-16, which replaces Statement on Auditing Standards No. 70 (SAS70), addresses engagements undertaken by a service auditor for reporting on controls at service organizations (e.g., data center providers) that provide services to user entities, for which a service organization's controls are likely to be relevant to a user entity's internal control over financial reporting (ICFR).
