Scanning America, Inc., a national provider of document imaging services, announced its recently completed SSAE 16 Type II audit by The Moore Group CPA, LLC, a nationally recognized independent auditing firm, verified the company’s core activities and control objectives with zero exceptions.

Successful completion of the SSAE 16 Type II Audit with no exceptions detected, the best result possible, provides independent third party verification of Scanning America, Inc. management’s assertion that its policies and procedures are both correctly designed and operating effectively to achieve the control objectives throughout the specified audit period.

Control objectives developed by Scanning America, Inc.’s management addressed by this audit strongly emphasize structure, stability, compliance and sustainability of:
 
  • Physical and Environmental Security
  • Information Security
  • Data Communications
  • Managerial and Staff Controls
  • Access Controls
