Independent Audit Verifies Hurricane Labs’ Internal Controls and Processes

Independence, OH – Hurricane Labs, a managed services provider, today announced that it has completed its SOC 2 Type II audit, performed by KirkpatrickPrice. This attestation provides evidence that Hurricane Labs 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 Hurricane Labs’ controls to meet the standards for these criteria.

“We view this compliance certification as a testament to our ongoing commitment to our clients’ security,” said Bill Mathews, owner and CTO, Hurricane Labs. “As a security company, Hurricane Labs is proud to lead by example in maintaining the best security practices, both in client environments as well as our own. Our clients can feel confident that we’re continuing to go above and beyond in the services we deliver to make sure their data stays secure.”

“The SOC 2 audit is based on the Trust Services Criteria. Hurricane Labs has selected the security, availability, confidentiality criteria for the basis of their audit,” said Joseph Kirkpatrick, President of KirkpatrickPrice. “Hurricane Labs delivers trust-based services to their clients, and by communicating the results of this audit, their clients can be assured of their reliance on Hurricane Labs’ controls.”
