About ISAE 3402 type 2
ISAE stands for International Standard on Assurance Engagements. ISAE 3402 is an international assurance standard that describes Service Organization Control engagements, which provides assurance to an organization’s customer that the service organization has adequate internal controls.
ISAE 3402 puts more emphasis on procedures for the ongoing monitoring and evaluation of control over data security, including the team education system.
Particularly ISAE 3402 Type II is a type of audit report, that refers to documenting how the process of control is performed over a certain period of time (typically 12 months).
An ISAE 3402 audit certificate includes an audit report performed by independent third-party representatives. The certificate confirms that Unite-X is compliant with the highest standard of internal control over data security and can be regarded as a quality criterion of Unite-X as a service provider.
It also pays for a customer to contract with a service provider that holds an ISAE 3402 certificate: the auditor of the customer can rely on the certificate of the service organization, resulting in a reduced necessary audit budget.
