Third-Party Assurance (TPA)

Outsourcing operations does not transfer the risk associated with that process. The organisation that is outsourcing (user entity) continues to remain responsible for governance, risk management and compliance for the processes / operations now managed by their service provider. Regulators and industry bodies are focused on addressing the risks arising out these changes. In this context, service providers (service organisations) build trust and confidence in the services performed and the associated controls through system and organization controls (SOC) reports.
