Two recent proposals would revise guidance for CPAs who provide clients attestation services, advisory services or both related to the risks and opportunities of IT-enabled systems and privacy programs. The AICPA and the Canadian Institute of Chartered Accountants are interested in receiving comments on their Generally Accepted Privacy Principles Framework proposal. Feedback on it is due April 15. The other proposal deals with system security, availability, processing integrity and confidentiality -- the other four principles used in the performance of a Trust Services engagement. The AICPA Trust Services/Data Integrity Task Force is looking for comments on this exposure draft by April 8.
