SSAE 18 Audit of Control Environment

On an annual basis, DTCC engages an independent third-party auditor to examine and report on the suitability of the design and operating effectiveness of controls for the most widely used DTCC Institutional Trade Processing solutions. The auditor prepares a Service Organization Control (SOC) 1 Type 2 report in accordance with Statement on Standards for Attestation Engagements (SSAE) No. 18, which was published by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) and supersedes the SSAE-16 standard for performing an examination of controls and processes. The SOC 1 report addresses controls in various areas, including data accuracy, security and processing timeliness. The report also contains a description of the control environment, including systems and processes, as well as management's assertion about the design and operating effectiveness of this control environment. Please direct SSAE 18 inquiries to your Relationship Manager, a Sales Associate or by contacting DTCC’s Client Contact Center.
