Rigorous assessment provides current and prospective clients with greater visibility and reassurance of robust internal control structure.

JULY 16, 2014 – SANTA ANA, CA -- Carrington Property Services, LLC (Carrington) announced today that it has obtained a SSAE 16/SOC 1 Type II report following an independent accounting firm's detailed review of Carrington’s processes and controls relating to operations. The rigorous Type II assessment, which included detailed testing of the national property management and REO asset management company’s controls, covered the following areas: control environment, risk assessment, monitoring, computer operations, data center operations, access/security, systems development, systems maintenance, and QA procedures.

"At Carrington, we are committed to upholding the highest industry and regulatory standards," said Kevin Cloyd, President of Carrington Property Services. "We are pleased with the results of our SSAE 16/SOC 1 Type II report, which we believe demonstrates Carrington’s commitment to compliance in all of our practices while providing industry-leading property and asset management services. As a result of this rigorous assessment, our clients can take comfort in the independent assessment of the effectiveness of Carrington’s internal controls, data security and operational infrastructure.”

The SSAE 16 updates the prior standard for Reporting on Controls at a Service Organization, the SAS70. The enhancements made from SAS 70 to SSAE 16 allow clients to have greater confidence when doing business with assessed companies. "Going through the comprehensive process to obtain the SSAE 16/SOC 1 Type II report should generate a high level of confidence in Carrington's security and operational controls. It is very important to us that our clients trust us to securely maintain the integrity of their data and manage our business in a tightly controlled environment, while knowing we have their best interests in mind,” added Cloyd.
