Independent Audit Verifies National Commercial Service’s Internal Controls and Processes
Van Nuys, CA – National Commercial Services (NCS), an experienced and specialized subrogation and commercial collection agency, today announced that it has completed its SOC 1 Type II audit, performed by KirkpatrickPrice. This attestation provides evidence that NCS 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 1 audit provides an independent, third-party validation that a service organization’s information security practices meet industry standards stipulated by the AICPA and SSAE 18. During the audit, a service organization’s controls that are relevant to ICFR are tested. The SOC 1 report delivered by KirkpatrickPrice verifies the suitability of the design and operating effectiveness of NCS’s controls to meet the standards for these criteria.
“NCS is committed to providing our clients with the most secure and efficient collection and subrogation services nationally. In an environment that has changed drastically within the last year, NCS is proud to have continued to maintain the security and effectiveness of our operations. NCS will complete the SOC 1 Type II audit annually to provide secure services to our clients and the public, as well as to stay abreast of all industry and standard improvements,” said Natalie Mansour, Vice President and Chief Operating Officer of NCS.
“Many of NCS’s clients rely on them to protect consumer information,” said Joseph Kirkpatrick, President of KirkpatrickPrice. “As a result, NCS has implemented best practice controls demanded by their clients to address information security and compliance risks. Our third-party opinion validates these controls and the tests we perform provide assurance to NCS’s clients.”
