Independent Audit Verifies CBOSS’s Internal Controls and Processes and PCI Compliance
Poland, OH – CBOSS, an e-payment service provider, today announced that it has completed its SSAE 18 (SOC 1) Type II and PCI audits. This attestation verifies that CBOSS 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 CBOSS’s controls that may affect its clients’ financial statements. In accordance with SSAE 18 (Statements on Standards for Attestation Engagements), the SOC 1 Type II audit report includes CBOSS’s description of controls as well as the detailed testing of its controls over a minimum six-month period. The standard demonstrates that an organization has adequate controls and processes in place.
