GREELY, Colo. -- PFC USA proudly announces its completion of a SOC 2 Type I audit, performed by KirkpatrickPrice. This attestation evidences PFC’s strong commitment to security and to delivering high-quality services to its clients by demonstrating it has the necessary internal controls and processes in place. “PFC has always strived for robust IT Security and Compliance programs and we are proud to have achieved SOC2 compliance as affirmation of those programs,” said Nick Prola, General Counsel and Director of Compliance at PFC.
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 of PFC’s controls to meet the standards for these criteria.
“The SOC 2 audit is based on the Trust Services Criteria,” said Joseph Kirkpatrick, President of KirkpatrickPrice. “PFC delivers trust-based services to their clients, and by communicating the results of this audit, their clients can be assured of their reliance on PFC’s controls.”
