Independent Audit Verifies Accudata Systems’ Internal Controls and Processes
HOUSTON, TX – July 30, 2020 – Accudata Systems, Inc., a leading IT consulting and systems integration firm, recently announced that it has completed its SOC 2 Type II audit, performed by KirkpatrickPrice. This attestation provides evidence that Accudata has a strong commitment to security and to delivering high-quality services to its customers by demonstrating that they have the necessary internal controls and processes in place.
A SOC 2 audit provides an independent, third-party validation that a service organization’s information security practices meet industry standards stipulated by the AICPA. During the audit, a service organization’s non-financial reporting controls as they relate to security, availability, processing integrity, confidentiality, and privacy of a system are tested. The SOC 2 report delivered by KirkpatrickPrice verifies the suitability of the design and operating effectiveness of Accudata’s controls to meet the standards for these criteria.
“Due to Accudata’s dedicated team and advanced capabilities, we felt very confident that we would excel in this year’s audit,” said Accudata Chief Technology Officer Brian DiPaolo. “To have KirkpatrickPrice confirm that we have strong security practices and internal controls provides the assurance our customers value. Achieving compliance with the AICPA standards aligns with Accudata’s unwavering commitment to protecting customers’ data.”
“The SOC 2 audit is based on the Trust Services Criteria. Accudata has selected the security, availability, and confidentiality criteria for the basis of their audit,” said Joseph Kirkpatrick, president of KirkpatrickPrice. “Accudata delivers trust-based services to their customers, and by communicating the results of this audit, their customers can be assured of their reliance on Accudata’s controls.”
