Aureon HR Successfully Completes SOC 1 Type 1 Examination - Ensures Compliance for Customer Security and Privacy

WEST DES MOINES, IA – July 9, 2018 -- Aureon HR,  a leading provider of payroll, human resource and benefits outsourcing solutions for small to medium-sized businesses, announced they have successfully completed their first SOC (System and Organization Controls) 1 Type 1 examination. The successful completion of the examination makes Aureon HR one of only a few PEOs throughout the country, and the only in the state of Iowa, to attain this accomplishment. This certification represents a significant achievement in Aureon HR’s ongoing commitment to ensure industry-leading compliance for its clients and customers.

“This examination demonstrates to our clients and customers that we have the necessary internal controls operating effectively to reduce the risk of a significant error, omission or data loss,” said Melissa Ness, President. “Aureon HR is one of a select few PEOs in the nation who have subjected their internal controls and data security standards to the rigors of SOC examination. This initial process validates we are adhering to the highest standards to efficiently serve and protect our clients.”

The internal control examination was performed by an independent accounting firm using attestation standards developed by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants. An examination of the design effectiveness of our controls, processes, and activities was performed and validated. This SOC report provides Aureon HR’s clients and prospects with an assurance that controls are in place relevant to financial reporting, operational processes, and data security standards.

The SOC 1 Type 1 examination was the first step in the company’s journey to achieving a SOC 1 Type 2 report.
