Independent Audit Verifies Notarize’s Internal Controls and Processes

Boston, MA ‚Äď KirkpatrickPrice announced today that Notarize, the first online legal notary platform, has received their SOC 2 Type I attestation report. The completion of this engagement provides evidence that Notarize has a strong commitment to deliver high quality services to its clients by demonstrating they have the necessary internal controls and processes in place.
