Certification Reinforces Fintech Platform for RIAs Commitment to Data Security and Privacy
New York, Sept. 28, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Flourish, a platform which provides innovative access to financial products that help RIAs secure their clients’ financial futures, today announced completion of its SOC 2® Type 1 examination.
The SOC 2 Type 1 certification is confirmation that Flourish’s platform and its services satisfy or exceed the exacting security measures and industry standards across security processes, internal controls, availability, and confidentiality criteria set forth by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA)
“More than 440 RIAs with a combined AUM of over $1.4 trillion trust Flourish with their clients’ data. Validating our ability to keep data safe and secure through a SOC 2 Type 1 certification is a demonstration of our commitment to our clients,” said Ben Cruikshank, President of Flourish. “We’re proud of this milestone and will continue to stay vigilant in the face of new security concerns and threats.”
Pursuing SOC certifications is voluntary. The SOC 2 Type 1 examination was conducted by KPMG LLP, an independent “Big 4” third-party accounting and audit firm, and was completed on April 18, 2022. Flourish plans on undergoing a SOC 2 Type 2 examination in the coming quarters. More information about the certification is available on the Flourish Web site: https://info.flourish.com/soc-2-blog.
