SOC 1 Type II Attestation
A Service Organization Control Report (SOC 1) is a reporting based on an attestation standard established by the AICPA. This report is in compliance with the SSAE 18 auditing standards and focuses on the controls of a service organization that are relevant to an audit of a user entity’s financial statements. A SOC 1 Type II report is an attestation of controls at a service organization over a minimum six-month period. A SOC 1 report provides an independent opinion on the establishment of effectively designed control objectives and control activities. KirkpatrickPrice, a licensed CPA firm, partners with Connectria to perform the audit and appropriate testing of our controls that may affect our clients’ financial statements.
The SSAE 18 auditing standards demonstrate that an organization has adequate controls and processes in place. Federal regulations such as Sarbanes-Oxley, Gramm-Leach-Bliley and the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) require corporations to audit the internal controls of their suppliers, including those that provide technology services.
SOC 1 audits deliver tangible benefits to those who utilize the services of an accredited organization. Anyone who obtains a Service Auditor's Report from their service organization(s) receives valuable information regarding the service organization's controls and the effectiveness of those controls. They also receive a detailed description of the service organization's controls and an independent assessment of whether the controls were placed in operation, suitably designed, and operating effectively.
We are committed to the evolving standards and will continue to demonstrate our compliance, quality of service and assurance so your organization can feel confident in choosing Connectria.
