Independent Audit Verifies Pana Industries’ Internal Controls and Processes
Denver, CO – Pana Industries, Inc. (Pana), a travel coordination platform, today announced that it has completed its SOC 2 Type II audit, performed by KirkpatrickPrice. This attestation provides evidence that Pana 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 Pana Industries’ controls to meet the standards for these criteria.
“As a travel coordination and online booking tool, Pana is exposed to a multitude of traveler data. To ensure the security of that data, we espouse the most stringent security standards and processes,” said Devon Tivona, co-founder & CEO of Pana. “We’re excited to have achieved this milestone and to demonstrate that the security processes and controls Pana has employed ensures that all customer and traveler data is safeguarded.”
“The SOC 2 audit is based on the Trust Services Criteria. Pana has selected the security and confidentiality criteria for the basis of their audit,” said Joseph Kirkpatrick, President of KirkpatrickPrice. “Pana delivers trust-based services to their clients, and by communicating the results of this audit, their clients can be assured of their reliance on Pana’s controls.”
