Independent Audit Verifies AdvicePay’s Internal Controls and Processes
by KirkpatrickPrice. This attestation provides evidence that AdvicePay has a strong commitment to security and to delivering high-quality services to its clients 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 AdvicePay’s controls to meet the standards for these criteria.
“We are proud to have completed the SOC 2 Type II examination and audit for the second time. Tens of thousands of clients place their trust in our system to deliver best-in-class solutions and
safeguards to protect and secure their data,” said Alan Moore, CEO & Co-Founder of AdvicePay. “The successful completion of the SOC 2 Type II examination and audit further proves our commitment to providing the most stringent safety measures to deliver enterprise-grade solutions.”
“The SOC 2 audit is based on the Trust Services Criteria,” said Joseph Kirkpatrick, President of KirkpatrickPrice. “AdvicePay delivers trust-based services to their clients, and by communicating
the results of this audit, their clients can be assured of their reliance on AdvicePay’s controls.”
