Independent Audit Verifies QBench’s Internal Controls and Processes

QBench, a cloud-based Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS), today announced that it has completed its SOC 2 Type II audit, performed by KirkpatrickPrice. This attestation provides evidence that QBench 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 QBench’s controls to meet the standards for these criteria.

“We are delighted to announce that QBench has completed another SOC 2 Type II audit and received an attestation with no exceptions. An audit with no exceptions demonstrates our oustanding commitment to meeting strict data security policies. This achievement is more than a compliance requirement; it is a testament to our dedication to safeguarding our customers’ data.”

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