HL Group Completes SOC 2® Type 1 Audit

We are proud to announce that we’ve completed a System and Organization Controls (SOC) 2® Type 1 Audit examination for our mobilePLUS Software Solution.

SOC 2® engagements are conducted within the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) AT-C 205, Reporting on Controls at a Service Organization framework.

AICPA SOC LogoOrganizations are audited based on the trust service principles and criteria outlined in the AICPA Reporting on Controls at a Service Organization Relevant to Availability, Processing Integrity, Confidentiality, or Privacy (SOC 2®). The SOC 2® Type 1 report was completed by an independent auditing firm and provided an understanding of the service organization’s suitability of the design, implementation, and operation of its internal controls. A service organization may select any or all of the trust service criteria applicable to its business. HL Group chose to report on security. The successful completion of this voluntary engagement illustrates HL Group’s ongoing commitment to creating and maintaining a secure operating environment for its clients’ confidential data.

Pease Bell CPAs, the independent auditing firm, tested HL Group’s controls, including an examination of their policies and procedures regarding cloud security, network connectivity, systems development life cycle, computer operations, logical access, data transmission, backup and disaster recovery, and other critical operational areas of their business. Upon completion of the audit, HL Group received a Service Auditor’s Report with an opinion demonstrating that their policies, procedures, and infrastructure meet or exceed the stringent SOC 2® criteria.

“The successful completion of our SOC 2® Type 1 examination audit provides HL Group’s clients with the assurance that the controls and safeguards we employ to protect and secure their data are in line with industry standards and best practices,” said Wesley Haubein, President.

HL Group believes information is one of the most valuable business assets to an organization, and partnership with HL Group provides the necessary protection to an organization’s information assets to mitigate risks associated with the use and processing of information collected during business operations.
