Omega Systems is pleased to announce that we have completed our SOC 2 Type II audit, performed by independent auditor KirkpatrickPrice. This attestation provides evidence that Omega Systems has a strong commitment to security and to delivering high-quality services to its customers by demonstrating that they have the necessary internal controls and processes in place.
This marks Omega Systems’ 10th consecutive year completing a SOC 2 audit, underscoring our commitment to ensuring the safety and security of our customers’ most sensitive information.
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 and operating effectiveness of Omega Systems’ controls to meet the standards for these criteria.
“As a managed service provider, we have a responsibility to keep our customers’ data protected, and we take that duty seriously,” said Bill Kiritsis, CEO of Omega Systems. “As businesses stare down evolving cyber-attacks and growing regulatory and compliance pressures, they can feel confident knowing – as our SOC 2 certification validates – that Omega’s infrastructure and controls are designed to keep their information secure and available.”
“The SOC 2 audit is based on the Trust Services Criteria,” said Joseph Kirkpatrick, President of KirkpatrickPrice. “Omega Systems delivers trust-based services to their clients, and by communicating the results of this audit, their clients can be assured of their reliance on Omega’s controls.”
