Melbourne, Florida, February 22, 2019 — Edge Information Management, a nationwide provider of employment screening services including accurate background screening, drug testing, and electronic i9/e-Verify services, announced today that it has recently completed its Service Organization Controls 2 (SOC 2) examination for the period of July through December 2018. The analysis was performed under AT-C 105 and AT-C 205 guidelines by an independent auditing firm.
Completion of the SOC 2 examination indicates that selected Edge Information Management processes, procedures and controls have been formally evaluated by an independent accounting and auditing firm. The examination included the company’s controls related to the Trust Services Principles and Criteria of Security and Availability.
A SOC 2 examination is performed in accordance to AICPA attestation standards. SOC 2 is designated as an acceptable method for a user entity’s management to obtain assurance about service organization internal controls over Security, Confidentiality, and Privacy without conducting additional assessments.
A SOC 2 examination is widely recognized, because it represents that a service organization has been through an evaluation of their activities as they relate to the applicable Trust Services Principles and Criteria. A Type II report includes the service organization’s system description, as well as a detailed testing of the operating effectiveness of the service organization’s controls throughout the specified period.
According to Edge’s Norm Gagnon, Vice President of Compliance & Operations, “With SOC 2 compliance, our business’ internal systems and processes are evaluated, strengthened and improved. We are now more equipped than ever to serve our clients in a secure and compliant way in a complex environment of ever increasing regulation and data security requirements. This gives us a competitive edge in the industry in terms of credibility and reputation.”
