NEW YORK (PRWEB) November 04, 2017
Portfolio Decisionware, Inc., a market leader in providing resource planning and portfolio oversight software to support operation decisions and improve resource and portfolio productivity, today announced that it has successfully completed a System and Organization Controls (SOC) 2® Type I Audit examination for their Resource Management Software as a Service System. Portfolio Decisionware, Inc. retained international business advisory firm Skoda Minotti for its SOC 2® audit work. Portfolio Decisionware, Inc. selected Skoda Minotti after an intensive search based on their reputation as a leading risk advisory and compliance firm.
Ben Osbrach, CISSP, CISA, QSA, CICP, CCSFP, partner-in-charge of Skoda Minotti’s risk advisory group says, “We were excited to work with PDWare from the very start. They are an intriguing organization delivering high quality services and their business adds to our growing SOC reporting practice.”
SOC 2® engagements are performed in accordance with the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants’ (AICPA) AT-C 320, Reporting on Controls at a Service Organization and based on the trust service principles outlined in the AICPA Guide, Reporting on Controls at a Service Organization Relevant to Security, Availability, Processing Integrity, Confidentiality, or Privacy. The SOC 2® Type I report is performed by an independent auditing firm and is intended to provide an understanding of the service organization’s suitability of the design of its internal controls. A service organization may select any or all of the trust service principles applicable to their business and PDWare chose to report on security and availability. The successful completion of this voluntary engagement illustrates PDWare’s ongoing commitment to create and maintain a secure operating environment for their clients’ confidential data.
Skoda Minotti’s testing of PDWare’s controls included examination of their policies and procedures regarding network connectivity, firewall configurations, 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, PDWare received a Service Auditor’s Report with an unqualified opinion demonstrating that their policies, procedures, and infrastructure meet or exceed the stringent SOC 2® criteria.
“The successful completion of our SOC 2® Type I examination audit provides PDWare’s clients with the assurance that the controls and safeguards we employ to protect and secure their data are in line industry standards and best practices,” said Paul Samarel, CTO.
