Global outsourcing is set to increase manifold in the coming years. The business environment is changing at a rapid pace. New technologies are being adopted, new delivery models are being tried out, regulatory requirements are constantly changing and cyber risk has emerged as a real threat to businesses. In this complex environment, organisations are looking at a means for establishing a trusted environment for doing business. It is in this context that third party reporting frameworks such as Service Organization Control (SOC 1, SOC 2 and SOC 3), Statement on Standards for Attestation Engagements (SSAE16), International Standard on Assurance Engagements (ISAE3402) reporting have gained widespread acceptance.
