CIO Solutions Receives SOC 2 Type II Attestation

Independent Audit Verifies CIO Solutions’ Internal Controls and Processes

Santa Barbara, CA – January 2023 – CIO Solutions, a leading local IT Management and Cloud solution provider, announced that it has again completed its SOC 2 Type II audit. Performed by KirkpatrickPrice, this attestation provides evidence that CIO Solutions 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.

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 CIO Solutions’ controls to meet the standards for these criteria.

“We like knowing our operations, data integrity and data security practices are reviewed by a 3rd party to the highest of standards. Kirkpatrick Price uses the SOC 2 audit to achieve this goal,” said Eric Egolf, CEO of CIO Solutions.

“The SOC 2 audit is based on the Trust Services Criteria,” said Joseph Kirkpatrick, President of KirkpatrickPrice. “CIO Solutions delivers trust-based services to their clients, and by communicating the results of this audit, their clients can be assured of their reliance on CIO Solutions’ controls.”
