SOC 1 CERTIFICATION – PORTLAND (OR)

Portland and Oregon business owners need to ensure sensitive data is protected, especially as it relates to the financial information of customers.  Organizations also continue to face pressure from regulators and customers to demonstrate that adequate controls are in place with respect to processing transactions and internal controls over financial reporting. Government regulations, such as Section 404 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 (SOX 404) stress the need for effective internal controls. Ensuring the company has robust internal controls and policies and practices in place is essential. In fact, many may expect to see a System and Organization Controls (SOC) report before doing business with a company. This examination (often referred to as a “SOC 1 audit”) verifies that the controls, processes, and procedures have been tested and indicates whether controls are effective.
