(The Hosting News) – Canadian Web Hosting, a leading online hosting provider in Canada announced today that it has successfully completed two independent audits of its selected controls, processes and procedures in compliance with the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants’ (AICPA) Statement on Auditing Standards (SAS) No. 70 for service organizations and the Canadian Institute of Chartered Accountants (CICA) Section 5970 for the period starting from May 1, 2011. SAS70 Type II (now known as SSAE16) and CICA 5970 audits are widely recognized within the industry as the benchmark for service organizations, and each certification requires a thorough audit of the internal controls of the service organization by a licensed independent auditor.
“By completing this audit, we want our customers to know that Canadian Web Hosting has the ability to keep their systems running and that we are doing everything possible to protect their sensitive data,” says Tony Chu, Canadian Web Hosting CEO. “By completing the CICA 5970 and SAS70 Type II audit, we are providing greater assurances and transparency into our business operations and delivering on our promise to offer the most secure and reliable web hosting platform in Canada.”
The SAS 70 Type II and CICA 5970 audit reports are intended to provide Canadian Web Hosting’s customers with information sufficient to obtain an understanding of the controls and processes in place, as well as assist in the assessments of business risk for their business organizations. The areas covered include operations and monitoring, strategic planning and organization, human resources, scale and performance, as well as ensuring overall security including systems, data and backups, and facilities. Matt McKinney, Director of Business Operations for Canadian Web Hosting says, “these internationally recognized and respected auditing standards are critical for our customers’ peace of mind, and it sets a level benchmark for proactive and continuous improvement of our processes, procedures and controls.”
