Toronto, Ontario – February 13, 2019 – Insurance Systems Inc. (“ISI”), a company dedicated to providing technology to the P&C insurance industry, today announced that they have successfully completed a System and Organization Controls (SOC) 1® Type II Audit examination for their ISI Enterprise Insurance Policy Administration Software System. Insurance Systems Inc. retained international CPA and business advisory firm, Skoda Minotti, for its SOC 1® audit work. Skoda Minotti was selected 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 continue our audit relationship with ISI on the completion of their 2018 SOC 1 Type II. Casey and his team strive for improvement in their controls year over year; taking their responsibility for maintaining a well-controlled and secured environment seriously.”
SOC 1® engagements are performed in accordance with the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants’ SSAE 18, Statement on Standards for Attestation Engagements (SSAE) No. 18, Reporting on Controls at a Service Organization. The SOC 1® Type II examination is performed by an independent auditing firm and is intended to meet the needs of the management of user entities and the user entities’ auditors, as they evaluate the effect of the controls at the service organization on the user entities’ financial statement assertions. These reports are important components of user entities’ evaluation of their internal controls over financial reporting for purposes of complying with laws and regulations such as the Sarbanes-Oxley Act and the user entities’ auditors as they plan and perform audits of the user entities’ financial statements.
Skoda Minotti’s testing of ISI’s control environment included examination of their policies and procedures regarding physical security, environmental security, computer operations (backup data), computer operations (system availability), application change control, information security, and data communications. Upon completion of the examination, ISI received a Service Auditor’s Report with an unqualified opinion demonstrating that their policies, procedures, and infrastructure controls were suitably designed and operating effectively to achieve the related control objectives throughout the examination period.
“The successful completion of our SOC 1® Type II examination audit provides ISI’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 Casey Kretz, President & CEO.
