CynergisTek (NYSE AMERICAN: CTEK), a leader in cybersecurity, privacy and compliance, today announced renewals of two long-term, publicly held clients for information technology (IT) audit and compliance contracts totaling approximately $950 thousand. Under the terms of the agreements CynergisTek will provide IT audit support services for internal information technology systems and IT Sarbanes Oxley (SOX) controls and will test the IT SOX controls as an outsourced IT internal audit function for the next 12 months. Modern finance, accounting and treasury applications are technology-based, resulting in a compliance obligation to validate the reliability of financial reporting.
“We strive to exceed our clients’ expectations and look forward to continuing our relationship with these two long-standing clients,” said Walter Zuniga, Managing Partner. “Our IT Audit Service, based on Information Technology General Computing Controls (ITGCC), delivers much more than a 'check the box audit' - it ensures that you meet your compliance requirements while validating the maturity of your IT control environment.”
CynergisTek’s team of Certified Information Systems Auditors (CISA) are highly qualified and experienced in conducting IT audits and internal reviews of an organization's IT control framework including controls over financial reporting.
“Our IT Audit service offering is a result of the acquisition of Backbone Consultants and is a testament that our expertise and strength in building a partnership with clients validates these critical renewals,” said Caleb Barlow, CEO of CynergisTek. “With the uncertainty of COVID-19 and the impacts many enterprises have faced, we have maintained focus on strengthening our ties with our client base.”
