Conducted by a national security and compliance solutions provider, the audit affirms the description of NTC’s systems and the suitability of the design and operating effectiveness of controls.
“Independent audits by third parties can be time consuming, but they are an excellent method for assuring our customers that we are worthy partners,” said NTC CEO John Hillman. “I’m proud of our team for working through this audit process again, providing the independent examiner with everything required and once again achieving this examination with zero exceptions or gaps in effectiveness.”
As part of the audit, NTC was required to provide a thorough description of its proprietary technologies and processes as well as describe the suitability of the controls NTC has in place to ensure it achieves its objectives for data confidentiality, integrity and availability. The independent audit company concluded:
● The description NTC provided fairly presents the security controls that were designed and implemented for the period January 1, 2016 through December 31, 2016.
● NTC’s controls were suitably designed to provide reasonable assurance that client data and information would be safe and secure
● NTC’s controls were tested and were operating effectively during the period (all of 2016)
