Advantage Credit Receives SOC 2 Report on Controls Related to Security at Advantage Credit, Inc. Issued by Linford & Company LLP
Evergreen, Colo., April 4, 2017 – Advantage Credit, Inc. today announced that the company has undergone a Type I Service Organization Control 2 examination resulting in a CPA’s report stating that management of Advantage Credit maintained effective controls over the Security of its Credit Reporting Services. The engagement was performed by Linford & Company LLP.
A SOC 2 Type I report is designed to meet the needs of existing or potential customers who need assurance about the design of controls at a service organization that are relevant to the security of the system used by the service organization to process customers’ transaction or information.
“We are pleased that our SOC 2 report has shown that we have the appropriate controls in place to mitigate risks related to Security,” said Marty Flynn, Executive Vice President.” The report provides Advantage Credit’s customers and prospects with independent, third-party verification that their operations meet or exceed corporate defined levels of processes and controls.”
The following principle and related criteria have been developed by the American Institute of CPAs (AICPA) and the Canadian Institute of Chartered Accountants (CICA) for use by practitioners in the performance of trust services engagements:
• Security. The system is protected against unauthorized access (both physical and logical).
A SOC 2 report is an internal control report on the services provided by a service organization to its customers and provides valuable information that existing and potential customers of the service organization need to assess and address the risks associated with an outsourced service.
