Accu-Time Systems Receives SOC 1 Type II and SOC 2 Type II Attestations

Accu-Time Systems (ATS), leader in workforce management and human resource data collection, today announced that it has completed its SOC 1 Type II and SOC 2 Type II audits, performed by KirkpatrickPrice. These attestations provide evidence that Accu-Time Systems has a strong commitment to security and to delivering high-quality services to its clients by demonstrating that they have designed the necessary internal controls and processes.
A SOC 1 audit provides an independent, third-party validation that a service organization’s information security practices meet industry standards stipulated by the AICPA and SSAE 18. During the audit, a service organization’s controls that are relevant to Internal Control for Financial Reporting (ICFR) are tested. The SOC 1 report delivered by KirkpatrickPrice verifies the suitability of the design of ATS’ controls to meet the standards for these criteria.
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 of Accu-Time Systems’ controls to meet the standards for these criteria.
“ATS is continuously improving its systems and control processes to guarantee its customers the best possible service with respect to the SSAE 18 principles of security, availability and confidentiality,” said Jean-Pierre Van de Capelle, Vice President Product Management. “The SOC audits by KirkpatrickPrice are one of the external engagements ATS uses to keep us on our toes and make sure an independent entity helps us assess and improve our systems and process controls with respect to these principles. The audits make continuous improvement part of our DNA.”
“Many of ATS’ clients rely on them to protect consumer information and provide secure services,” said Joseph Kirkpatrick, President of KirkpatrickPrice. “As a result, Accu-Time has implemented best-practice controls demanded by their clients to address information security and compliance risks. Our third-party opinion validates these controls and the tests we perform provide assurance to ATS’ clients.”
