BOSTON, OTTAWA and EDINBURGH, U.K., (September 22, 2020) - CURO Compensation Limited (CURO), an industry leader in total compensation management technology, today announced the successful completion of its System and Organization Controls (SOC) 2® Type 1 Audit. The examination provides independent validation that CURO’s internal security controls and data confidentiality standards are in accordance with the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants’ (AICPA) applicable Trust Services Principles and Criteria.
Considered the gold standard for security, the SOC 2 audit helps organizations ensure that the data assets of existing and potential customers remain protected. Testing follows set principles established by AICPA and is performed by third-party auditing firms. To complete the report, CURO worked with A-LIGN on the U.S. side and CyberWhite in the U.K.
“Compensation is highly sensitive and personal by nature, and protecting client information has always been a top priority. Achieving our SOC 2 certification reinforces CURO’s ongoing commitment to data security and confidentiality. This type of rigorous, independent audit provides detailed information and assurances about the controls and safeguards that we have in place,” said Gerry O’Neill, co-founder and CEO of CURO.
Achieving the SOC 2 Type 1 certification will enhance the trust that CURO customers place in its compensation management solutions.
Stewart Kerr, Chief Information & Security Officer for CURO, shared, “Completing a SOC 2 Type 1 audit represents significant progress for Curo. It makes a big statement about our commitment to the protection of our client data.”
