BEAR Technologies Receives SOC 2 Type II Attestation
Independent Audit Verifies BEAR Technologies Internal Controls and Processes
BEAR Technologies, an award-wining Managed Service Security Provider, today announced that it has completed its SOC 2 Type II audit without exceptions, performed by KirkpatrickPrice. Both the design and operational effectiveness of BEAR’s controls were evaluated over the 15-month period between April 1, 2022, and March 31, 2023. This attestation provides evidence that BEAR Technologies has a strong commitment to security and to delivering high-quality services to its clients by demonstrating that they have the necessary internal controls and processes in place.
“Through rigorous assessment and continuous improvement, we consistently enhance our internal controls and processes, ensuring that our clients’ sensitive data remain safeguarded in today's rapidly evolving threat landscape” said Yogi Yeager, President of BEAR Technologies, “Completing our third annual SOC 2 Type II audit highlights our dedication to the highest standards of security, confidentiality, and privacy for our valued clients.”
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 BEAR Technologies controls to meet the standards for these criteria.
“The SOC 2 audit is based on the Trust Services Criteria,” said Joseph Kirkpatrick, President of KirkpatrickPrice. “BEAR Technologies delivers trust-based services to their clients, and by communicating the results of this audit, their clients can be assured of their reliance on BEAR Technologies controls.”
