Brivo Successfully Completes Information Security Audit
Brivo Systems LLC has completed its SAS 70 Type II information security audit. The company, which specializes in Web-hosted applications for access control and video, has achieved certification in an effort to assure customers that its controls and processes provide reasonable assurances of service levels and data security.
The “Statement on Auditing Standards No. 70” defines the processes an auditor uses to assess the internal controls of service organizations that provide data processing, storage or application services to their customers. Brivo’s SAS 70 audit was performed by the consulting firm SC&H Group LLC of Sparks, Md.
The Sarbanes-Oxley Act has identified the Type II SAS 70 audit as the only acceptable method for a third party to assure a service organization’s controls. Under most interpretations, Sarbanes-Oxley compels public companies to have IT audits for internal systems and for any outsourced services they use for certain critical services. According to the SEC, publicly held companies can rely on an outsourced service provider’s SAS 70 report to meet their own obligation to assess controls over outsourced services.
“Our successful completion of the SAS 70 Type II means our customers can be assured that they are in full compliance with their own audit requirements for the outsourced security services that we provide. This gives our customers peace of mind and saves them considerable time and expense,” says Steve Van Till, president and CEO, Brivo Systems.
