by Sarah Harvey / April 30th, 2020

Chicago, IL – Yello, a talent acquisition software company, today announced that it has completed its SOC 2 Type II audit, performed by KirkpatrickPrice. This attestation provides evidence that Yello 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 Yello’s controls to meet the standards for these criteria.

“We are thrilled to have earned our SOC 2 attestation,” said Jason Weingarten, CEO & Co-Founder of Yello. “This certification reinforces Yello’s promise to protect and secure customers’ confidential information. I am really proud of the team at Yello that worked so diligently to successfully attain this certification.  We look forward to upholding the data security and compliance standards that have driven our business for years.”

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