SAN RAMON, Calif. – March 10, 2017 – PRLog — eCIFM Solutions, an Integrated Workplace Management Systems provider, today announced that it has completed its SSAE 16 (SOC 1) Type II Audit. This attestation verifies that eCIFM Solutions has the proper internal controls and processes in place to deliver high quality services to its clients.
KirkpatrickPrice, a licensed CPA and PCI QSA firm, performed the audit and appropriate testing of eCIFM Solutions’ controls that may affect its clients’ financial statements. In accordance with SSAE 16 (Statements on Standards for Attestation Engagements), the SOC 1 Type II audit report includes eCIFM Solutions’ description of controls as well as the detailed testing of its controls over a minimum six-month period.
“Many of eCIFM Solutions’ clients rely on them to protect consumer information,” said Joseph Kirkpatrick, Managing Partner with KirkpatrickPrice. “As a result, eCIFM Solutions has implemented best practice controls demanded by their customers to address information security and compliance risks. Our third-party opinion validates these controls and the tests we perform provide assurance regarding the managed solutions provided by eCIFM Solutions.”
SOC 1 Type II is a reporting on the controls at a service organization that was established by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA). This report is in compliance with the SSAE 16 auditing standards which focus on the controls of a service organization that are relevant to an audit of a user entity’s financial statements. The standard demonstrates 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.
