Philadelphia CPA firm announces national SAS 70 audit partnership

Philadelphia-based Briggs, Bunting & Dougherty, LLP (BBD) and Chief Security Officers, LLC (CSO) are pleased to announce a strategic partnership that will enable the two firms to provide seamless SAS 70 audit services for third-party service organizations across the country.

SAS 70 audits are vital to service organizations because these organizations need to demonstrate an adequate control environment and safeguards for processing data belonging to their customers. Customers of these organizations rely on the SAS 70 audit to understand and develop comfort with the organization's internal controls and to assist in evaluating internal control over financial reporting. Many customers review the results of the SAS 70 audit prior to making a decision to work with a service organization.

The combined strengths of CSO's background in analysis of complex technology environments, as well as BBD's ability to assess controls designed to achieve specified control objectives, offer clients a service team with unparalleled SAS 70 expertise. The team's extensive experience with SAS 70 audits also creates an opportunity to add value beyond the SAS 70 opinion. For example, where possible, the team's SAS 70 experts will offer suggestions to strengthen the client's control environment.
