Independent Audit Verifies Terrier Claims Services’ Internal Controls and Processes
Pleasantville, NY – April 2017 – KirkpatrickPrice announced today that Terrier Claims Services, a full service insurance investigations firm, has received their SOC 2 Type I attestation report. The completion of this engagement provides evidence that Terrier Claims Services has a strong commitment to deliver high quality services to its clients by demonstrating they have the necessary internal controls and processes in place.
SOC 2 engagements are based on the AICPA’s Trust Services Principles. SOC 2 service auditor reports focus on a Service Organization’s non-financial reporting controls as they relate to security, availability, processing integrity, confidentiality, and privacy of a system. KirkpatrickPrice’s service auditor report verifies the suitability of the design and operating effectiveness of Terrier Claims Services’ controls to meet the criteria for these principles.
“Terrier Claims Services continues to be the best solution for claims investigation services. Now, with KirkPatrickPrice as our auditor and the SOC2 certification, our clients can rest assured that their data is retained in a secure environment. Terrier Claims Services is the only SOC2 certified regional investigation company in the Northeast,” said Dan Sullivan, President of Terrier Claims Services.
“The SOC 2 audit is based on the Trust Services Principles and Criteria. Terrier Claims Services has selected the security principle for the basis of their audit,” said Joseph Kirkpatrick, Managing Partner with KirkpatrickPrice. “Terrier Claims Services delivers trust based services to their clients, and by communicating the results of this audit, their clients can be assured of their reliance on Terrier Claims Services’ controls.”
