SysTrust Certification Cloud Computing

SysTrust certification was developed jointly by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) and the Canadian Institute of Chartered Accountants (CICA).

A SysTrust engagement is performed by a licensed CPA to evaluate a system’s reliability as measured against the SysTrust principles and criteria. The CPA performs tests to determine whether the system was available for operation and use at times set forth in service level statements or agreements. If the system meets the requirements of the Trust Services Principles and Criteria, an unqualified attestation report is issued.

Trust Services are defined as:

A set of professional assurance and advisory services based on a common framework (i.e., a core set of principles and criteria) to address the risks and opportunities of IT.

The objective in developing Trust Services was to establish a core set of principles and related criteria for key areas related to IT, e-commerce, ebusiness, and systems, all of which form the measurement basis for the delivery of the related service(s).

The SysTrust seal indicates that this core set of principles have been examined by an independent auditing firm in conformity with the rigorous AICPA and CICA Trust Services Principles & Criteria. The certification attests that:

  • The system was available for operation and use at times set forth in service-level statements or agreements
  • The system was protected against unauthorized physical and logical access
  • Information designated as confidential was protected as committed or agreed
