Independent Audit Verifies Trinity’s Best Practices to Protect Customer Data
Dallas, TX – Trinity Real Estate Solutions®, a national provider of specialty inspections, construction lending services and appraisals, is pleased to announce it has successfully completed a System and Organization Controls (SOC) 2 Type II audit, performed by KirkpatrickPrice. This completion illustrates Trinity’s ongoing commitment to create and maintain a secure operating environment for its clients’ confidential data.
“In today’s world, data privacy is a fundamental right, and data security is imperative to the customer experience,” says Steve Fontaine, Vice President Services at Trinity. “The SOC 2 audit helped standardize and streamline Trinity’s policies and procedures, and working with KirkpatrickPrice ensures our customers’ data will be handled using the strictest of guidelines. Protecting our customers’ most critical assets is not only our job – it’s a commitment that goes to the very heart of our relationship with each and every client.”
“The SOC 2 audit is based on the Trust Services Criteria, and Trinity selected the security and availability categories for the basis of their audit,” said Joseph Kirkpatrick, President of KirkpatrickPrice. “By communicating the results of this audit, their clients can be assured of their reliance on Trinity’s controls.”
SOC 2 engagements are performed in accordance with the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants’ (AICPA) Trust Services Criteria. SOC 2 audit 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 audit report verifies the suitability of the design of Trinity’s controls to meet the standards for these criteria.
