Richweb Receives SOC 2 Type I Attestation
Independent Audit Verifies Richweb’s Internal Controls and Processes
Glen Allen, VA – May 2019 – Richweb, a hosting and virtualized network engineering service provider, today announced that it has completed its SOC 2 Type I audit. This attestation provides evidence that Richweb has a strong commitment to deliver high quality services to its clients by demonstrating they have the necessary internal controls and processes in place.
SOC 2 engagements are based on the AICPA’s 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 Richweb’s controls to meet the standards for these criteria.
Richweb CEO Mark Lea said, “Richweb is very excited and happy to be able to make this announcement. The SOC 2 audit was one of our key targets for this year, so achieving this SOC 2 Type I attestation is a major accomplishment. We are especially happy to be able to include this attestation from KirkpatrickPrice as part of our portfolio of service and security assurances for customers.”
“The SOC 2 audit is based on the Trust Services Criteria. Richweb has selected the security category for the basis of their audit,” said Joseph Kirkpatrick, President of KirkpatrickPrice. “Richweb delivers trust-based services to their clients, and by communicating the results of this audit, their clients can be assured of their reliance on Richweb’s controls.”
