Independent Audit Verifies IDM’s Internal Controls and Processes

Reston, VA – IDM, a data intelligence and marketing advisory firm, today announced that it has completed its SOC 2 Type II audit. This attestation provides evidence that IDM 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 IDM’s controls to meet the standards for these criteria.

“Successfully completing the SOC 2 Type II audit is yet another way IDM is demonstrating its deep commitment to customer data security.  Having a successful SOC 2 Type 2 audit should give our clients confidence that we are diligent on how we protect their data.  IDM’s dedication to information security allows customers to trust us with confidential information and can depend on IDM as their service provider for secure, compliant services,” said Drew Steed, IDM CIO.

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