Independent Audit Verifies Randstad RiseSmart’s Internal Controls and Processes

SAN JOSE, Calif., March 9, 2022 – Randstad RiseSmart, a leading specialist in coaching and career transitions, today announced that it has completed its SOC 2 Type II audit, performed by KirkpatrickPrice. This attestation provides evidence that Randstad RiseSmart 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 Randstad RiseSmart’s controls to meet the standards for these criteria.

“At RiseSmart we deliver innovation to businesses across the world, but a SOC 2 audit is an opportunity for our business to innovate and improve itself,” said Vikash Chauhan, chief technology officer, Randstad RiseSmart. “The audit isn’t a simple tick box exercise to be checked off every year, or just another IT task to include in the budget. Instead, we view the audit as an opportunity to improve our business processes, our approach to data security, and the organization as a whole. As a business partner entrusted to help unleash worklife possibilities, we view caring about our customer’s data and keeping it secure as a critical piece of our business operation.”

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