SAS 70 / SSAE No. 16

Statement on Auditing Standards (SAS) No. 70 was a widely recognized auditing standard developed by the AICPA that represents that a service organization or service providers demonstrate that they have adequate controls and safeguards when they host or process data belonging to their customers. The new service reporting standard, SSAE 16 superseded SAS No. 70. In addition to these controls, DAC was certified by the AICPA from 2002-2007 with the issuance of Annual WebTrust Certifications. These certifications assured that the requisite internal controls, corporate infrastructure management and corporate security were adequate and in place throughout the system and included Policies and Procedures for file transfer to and from client and regulator systems as well as Policies and Procedures for external user access to the DAC system.

As a leading provider of depository services for thousands of clients, DAC wants its users to be provided with operational controls to meet their compliance mandates such as Sarbanes-Oxley, HIPPA and GLBA. DAC’s full disaster recovery program provides the highest levels of uptime, availability and responsiveness.
