Chicago, IL (February 07, 2023) – Rival Systems (Rival), a leading provider of trading and risk management software, has announced they have fulfilled SOC 2 Type I security compliance.

The American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) developed the SOC 2 (System and Organization Controls) report to establish benchmark criteria of industry standards and best practices for platform and data security processes. Rival Systems’ SOC 2 Type I examination was conducted by IS Partners, LLC.

“The secure management of client data has always been a top priority for the entire Rival Systems team. Achieving SOC 2 Type I compliance confirms our efforts and provides a great framework for us to continue to meet the highest standards as our technology and services evolve.” – Rob D’Arco, Rival Systems CEO.

Auditors generate the SOC 2 report through a rigorous analysis of an organization’s infrastructure, people, software, and data handling and storage processes for a specific date or period of time. This examination requires strict organizational transparency to determine the functional fitness of handling customer data.

The pursuit of SOC 2 compliance demonstrates Rival’s relentless commitment to client safety and compliant internal processes and their mission to provide the most efficient, agile, and cost-effective solutions to help clients succeed in capital markets. Rival expects to achieve SOC 2 Type II compliance in Q3 2023.
