NTT agreed to deliver an ISAE 3402 Type II statement for services specifically delivered to one of her strategic clients. NTT was looking for a partner they could trust to deliver a high-quality consulting assignment to enable NTT to meet its requirements. After preliminary meetings, NTT felt confidant Risklane understood the NTT culture and had the resources to help them deliver. Risklane helped NTT prepare for this SOC assessment. Risklane’s team worked decisively and quickly gained insight into the control landscape of a complex supply chain in a large organization. Nothing short than impressive.
Together, NTT and Risklane prepared an internal control framework that shows how NTT meets all ISAE 3402 requirements and market/client expectations. The ISAE 3402 control framework shows NTT’s strategic clients how processes and controls are defined and managed.
Eventually, NTT gained insight and practical advice on what it takes to ensure a smooth formal SOC assessment resulting in planning for formal audits. All the controls for internal control are prepared by NTT and Risklane.
ISAE 3402 Type ll audit
NTT has engaged with Conclude Accountant as a professional partner for performing the ISAE 3402 Type II audit in 2021. This audit is performed over a period under review of at least six months. During this period, the internal control system is verified on design, existence, and operating effectiveness. The resulting ISAE 3402 Type II assurance report is the ultimate confirmation that NTT is in control of its processes.
