Screen GP Americas, a division of Screen Graphic Solutions, has completed its SOC 2 (system and organization control) type I audit. The audit was performed by KirkpatrickPrice, a licensed CPA firm specializing in information security.
The SOC 2 audit provides independent validation that the organization’s information security practices meet industry standards stipulated by the AICPA (American Institute of CPAs). 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 Screen Americas’ controls to meet the standards for these criteria.
‘We know how important information security is to our customers,’ said Ken Ingram, president of Screen Americas. ‘The entire Screen organization is constantly striving towards higher levels of security. It is one thing for us to say we provide secure services, it is another to provide independent verification from an expert. We’ve gone through one of the most rigorous security audits in the industry, SOC 2, to demonstrate our commitment to compliance.’
‘The SOC 2 audit is based on the Trust Services Criteria. Screen GP Americas has selected the security and confidentiality criteria for the basis of their audit,’ said Joseph Kirkpatrick, president of KirkpatrickPrice. ‘Screen GP Americas delivers trust-based services to their clients and, by communicating the results of this audit, their clients can be assured of their reliance on Screen GP Americas’ controls.’
Screen GP Americas plans to pursue a SOC 2 type II report in 2020.
Additionally, Screen has completed its HIPAA security rule audit. This independent review of Screen’s information security control structure demonstrates their compliance with the HIPAA security rule; this audit was also conducted by KirkpatrickPrice.
