ClassLink Receives SOC 2 Type II Attestation
Independent Audit Verifies ClassLink’s Internal Controls and Processes
Clifton, NJ – ClassLink, a cloud-based education solution services provider, today announced that it has completed its SOC 2 Type II audit. This attestation provides evidence that ClassLink has a strong commitment to deliver high quality services to its clients by demonstrating they have the necessary internal controls and processes in place.
SOC 2 engagements are based on the AICPA’s Trust Services Criteria. SOC 2 service auditor reports focus on a service organization’s non-financial reporting controls as they relate to security, availability, processing integrity, confidentiality, and privacy of a system. KirkpatrickPrice’s service auditor report verifies the suitability of the design and operating effectiveness of ClassLink’s controls to meet the standards for these criteria.
“ClassLink is committed to protecting the privacy of data that is entrusted to us. We take this commitment very seriously, and have subjected our controls and procedures to a full SOC 2 Type II audit by a trusted auditor, KirkpatrickPrice. We will continue to provide our customers with best products and support possible, and are proud to have achieved this attestation.” – Jeff Janover, VP of Interoperability Services, ClassLink
“The SOC 2 audit is based on the Trust Services Criteria. ClassLink has selected the security, availability, and confidentiality categories for the basis of their audit. ClassLink delivers trust-based services to their clients, and by communicating the results of this audit, their clients can be assured of their reliance on ClassLink’s controls.” – Joseph Kirkpatrick, President of KirkpatrickPrice
