Dallas, Texas – Trinity Real Estate Solutions®, a national provider of construction lending services, specialty inspections, and appraisals, today announced its successful completion of its annual System and Organizational Controls (SOC) 2® Type II examination and audit. Performed by licensed CPA firm KirkpatrickPrice, this achievement underscores Trinity’s unwavering commitment to data privacy and security, confirming the highest level of security standards for its clients’ confidential data.
“Our customers and partners trust us to safeguard their data, and Trinity is fully committed to meeting and exceeding their expectations by providing the highest level of security standards,” explains Steve Fontaine, VP Services, Trinity Real Estate Solutions. “Obtaining a SOC 2 attestation again reinforces our dedication to standardizing and streamlining Trinity’s security practices, operational environment, and policies and procedures.

“The SOC 2 audit is based on the Trust Services Criteria,” said Joseph Kirkpatrick, President of KirkpatrickPrice. “Trinity delivers trust-based services to their clients, and by communicating the results of this audit, their clients can be assured of their reliance on Trinity Real Estate Solutions’ controls.”
A SOC 2 Type 2 audit provides an independent, third-party validation of a service organization’s information security practices based on the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants’ (AICPA) Trust Services Criteria. During the audit, a service organization’s non-financial reporting controls are tested, as they relate to security, availability, processing integrity, confidentiality, and privacy of a system. The SOC 2 report delivered by KirkpatrickPrice verifies the suitability of the design and operating effectiveness of Trinity’s controls to meet the standards for these criteria.
