Clients of Cavern may use our SAS 70 report as a substitute for performing first hand testing in conjunction with Sarbanes-Oxley, HIPAA, or other compliance obligations.
Lenexa, KS (PRWEB) September 16, 2009 -
Cavern Technologies, a leading underground developer, manager, and operator of mission critical data center space solutions, has completed the American Institute of Certified Public Accounts (AICPA) Statement on Auditing Standards No. 70 (SAS 70) examination for its data center in the Kansas City Metropolitan Area. This extensive examination was conducted by Mayer Hoffman McCann, an Independent CPA Firm.
Statement on Auditing Standards (SAS) No. 70, Service Organizations, is a widely recognized auditing standard developed by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA). A service auditor's examination performed in accordance with SAS No. 70 ("SAS 70 Audit") is widely recognized, because it represents that a service organization has been through an in-depth audit of their control objectives and control activities, which often include controls over information technology and related processes. In today's global economy, service organizations or service providers must demonstrate that they have adequate controls and safeguards when they host or process data belonging to their customers. In addition, the requirements of Section 404 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 make SAS 70 audit reports even more important to the process of reporting on the effectiveness of internal control over financial reporting.
"Our annual SAS 70 audit reassures our clients that our operational processes and controls meet high standards for the security and reliability." Cavern's President John Clune said in a statement. "Clients of Cavern may use our SAS 70 report as a substitute for performing first hand testing in conjunction with Sarbanes-Oxley, HIPAA, or other compliance obligations."
