Durham, NC – January 2020 – Net Friends, a North-Carolina based IT service and solutions provider, today announced that it has completed its voluntary SOC 2 Type II audit. This attestation provides evidence that Net Friends has a strong commitment to deliver high quality services to its clients by demonstrating they have the necessary internal controls and processes in place.
“The SOC 2 Type II audit was a deep dive into our processes and internal controls,” said John Snyder, President of Net Friends. “This voluntary audit allowed us to confirm we have the appropriate policies, standards, and procedures in place and prove it to an independent auditor. We are so pleased that the audit uncovered no issues and shows we have taken the steps necessary to protect our clients.” Audit findings are available for client review on request.
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 and operating effectiveness of Net Friends’ controls to meet the standards for these criteria.
“The SOC 2 audit is based on the Trust Services Criteria. Net Friends has selected the security and availability categories for the basis of their audit,” said Joseph Kirkpatrick, President of KirkpatrickPrice. “Net Friends delivers trust-based services to their clients, and by communicating the results of this audit, their clients can be assured of their reliance on Net Friends’ controls.”
