Independent Audit Verifies UtilityAPI’s Internal Controls and Processes
Oakland, CA – UtilityAPI, a software company that provides secure, standardized, authorized access to utility data, today announced that it has completed its SOC 2 Type II audit, performed by KirkpatrickPrice. This attestation provides evidence that UtilityAPI 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 to protect private data.
A SOC 2 audit provides an independent, third-party validation that an organization’s information security practices meet industry standards stipulated by the AICPA. During the audit, an 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 UtilityAPI’s controls to meet the standards for these criteria.
“Every day, UtilityAPI’s customers trust us with their private data. Undergoing a SOC 2 audit is one way we can show them their trust in us is both warranted and appreciated,” said Daniel Roesler, UtilityAPI’s founder and Chief Technology Officer.
“The SOC 2 audit is based on the Trust Services Criteria,” said Joseph Kirkpatrick, President of KirkpatrickPrice. “UtilityAPI delivers trust-based services to their clients, and by communicating the results of this audit, their clients can be assured of their reliance on UtilityAPI’s controls.”
