The audit tests a service organization’s non-financial reporting controls as they relate to security, availability, processing integrity, confidentiality and privacy. The SOC 2 report delivered by KirkpatrickPrice verifies the suitability of the design and operating effectiveness of RiseSmart’s controls to meet the standards for these criteria.
“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 RiseSmart’s controls.”
