Medical Consultants Network, the nation’s leading fully integrated provider of Independent Medical Examinations and Peer Reviews, announces successful completion of our third-party SSAE 16 SOC 1, Type 2 audit. This third-party audit by Moss Adams confirms Medical Consultants Networks’ commitment to maintaining high standards for security.
SSAE 16 (Statement on Standards for Attestation Engagements #16) provides United States guidance for auditors reporting on a service organization’s controls, while SOC (Service Organization Controls) reports are designed to help service organizations build trust and confidence in their service delivery processes and controls through a report by an independent Certified Public Accountant. The SOC audits provide assurance that controls asserted actually exist and are functioning properly.
An organization can receive either a Type 1 or a Type 2 SOC audit. The former merely reports on the suitability of controls at a point in time, while the latter tests the operating effectiveness of controls over a period of time. MCN’s audit was conducted by Moss Adams LLP, one of the largest and most respected accounting and business consulting firms in the nation.
MCN has long recognized the importance of IT security, maintaining the safety of medical information and the integrity of our systems. The certification of our compliance with SSAE16 SOC 1 Type 2 standards is a recognition of our efforts and the hard work by MCN companywide, from our information services and operations staff to our human resources personnel in meeting industry standards at this high level. Our attention to security and the safety of our clients’ data is on-going.
“In attaining its SOC 1 Type 2 audit reports, MCN reinforces its strong commitment to the security and availability of its data centers and operations,” stated Chris Kradjan, Partner, National IT/SOC Practice Leader, Moss Adams.
