Moonlight Business Process Outsourcing Receives SOC 1 Type II Attestation Report

Independent Audit Verifies Moonlight BPO's Internal Controls and Processes

BEND, Ore., Dec. 3, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Moonlight Business Process Outsourcing, a print-to-mail service system, today announced that it has completed its semi-annual SOC 1 (Service Organization Control) Type II audit.  This certification attestation verifies that Moonlight BPO has the proper internal controls and processes in place to deliver high quality services to its clients.    

KirkpatrickPrice, a licensed CPA firm, performed the audit and appropriate testing of Moonlight BPO's controls that may affect its clients' financial statements.  In accordance with SSAE 16 (Statement on Standards for Attestation Engagements), the SOC 1 Type II audit report includes Moonlight BPO's description of controls as well as the detailed testing of its controls over a minimum six-month period.   Moonlight BPO completed its SOC 1 audit on February 29, 2012.

"Our certifications are what make us stand out from other companies that offer the same services," said Brenda Grigsby, President of Moonlight BPO. "Certifications are what show our customers that we are serious about protecting their data and that of their customers. We take pride in our certifications."

"Many of Moonlight BPO's clients rely on their systems to process or store sensitive data," said Joseph Kirkpatrick, Managing Partner with KirkpatrickPrice. "As a result, Moonlight BPO has implemented best practice controls demanded by their customers to address Information Security risks. Our third-party opinion validates these controls and the tests we perform provide assurance regarding the managed solutions provided by Moonlight BPO."

SOC 1 Type II is a reporting on the controls at a service organization that was established by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA).  This report is in compliance with the SSAE 16 auditing standards which focus on the controls of a service organization that are relevant to an audit of a user entity's financial statements.  The standard demonstrates that an organization has adequate controls and processes in place.  Federal regulations such as Sarbanes-Oxley, Gramm-Leach-Bliley and the Health Insurance Profitability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) require corporations to audit the internal controls of their suppliers, including those that provide technology services.

The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
