Herndon, Virginia – October 17, 2018 – Iron Bow Technologies, an information technology solutions provider to the government, commercial and healthcare markets, today announced it has successfully completed a System and Organization Controls (SOC) 2® Type II Audit examination for its Customer Service Representative Call Center Services System. Iron Bow retained international business advisory firm Skoda Minotti for its SOC 2® audit work. Iron Bow selected Skoda Minotti after an intensive search based on their reputation as a leading risk advisory and compliance firm.
“We were excited to continue our audit relationship with Iron Bow on the completion of their 2018 SOC 2 Type II. The Iron Bow team strives for improvement in their controls year over year; taking their responsibility for maintaining a well-controlled and secure environment seriously,” stated Ben Osbrach, CISSP, CISA, QSA, CICP, CCSFP, partner-in-charge of Skoda Minotti’s risk advisory group.
SOC 2® engagements are performed in accordance with the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants’ (AICPA) AT-C 205, Reporting on Controls at a Service Organization and based on the trust service principles outlined in the AICPA Guide. The SOC 2® Type II report is performed by an independent auditing firm and is intended to provide an understanding of the service organization’s suitability of the design and operating effectiveness of its internal controls. A service organization may select any or all of the trust service principles applicable to their business and Iron Bow chose to report on security, availability and confidentiality. The successful completion of this voluntary engagement illustrates Iron Bow’s ongoing commitment to create and maintain a secure operating environment for their clients’ confidential data.
Skoda Minotti’s testing of Iron Bow’s controls included examination of their policies and procedures regarding network connectivity, firewall configurations, systems development life cycle, computer operations, logical access, data transmission, backup and disaster recovery as well as other critical operational areas of their business. Upon completion of the audit, Iron Bow received a Service Auditor’s Report with an unqualified opinion demonstrating that their policies, procedures and infrastructure meet or exceed the stringent SOC 2® criteria.
“The successful completion of our SOC 2® Type II examination audit provides Iron Bow’s clients with the assurance that the controls and safeguards we employ to protect and secure client data are in line industry standards and best practices,” said Kirk Smith, Vice President of Information Systems.
