Chicago, IL – Following a thorough audit of its data security procedures and controls, American Litho of Carol Stream, Illinois, has received a SOC 2 Type I certification report from KirkpatrickPrice, a worldwide provider of assurance services.

The report confirms that American Litho’s data handling processes meet or exceed tough standards established in accordance with the American Society of Certified Public Accountants’ Trust Services Criteria. SOC 2 audit reports focus on a company’s non-financial reporting controls in terms of the security, availability, processing integrity, confidentiality and privacy of specific systems.

“American Litho delivers trust-based services for clients, and by communicating the results of this audit, the company’s clients can be assured of their reliance on American Litho’s controls,” said Joseph Kirkpatrick, Managing Partner with KirkpatrickPrice, following the release of the report.

“Meeting or exceeding SOC 2 standards is not an easy task,” said American Litho President and Co-Founder Mike Fontana, “but for us, it is simply a matter of accepting responsibility for the massive data sets our clients entrust to us.”

Data-driven strategies such as predictive modeling are the path to growth and strong customer engagement, Fontana added. “This reality has made direct mail data security a crucial priority for our entire team.”
