Frazier & Deeter and ControlScan Announce Strategic Partnership
Nation’s 77th largest CPA firm combines forces with leading provider of Payment Card Industry (PCI) Compliance and Security solutions to provide broader and more efficient compliance services for mid-market businesses
Atlanta, GA. (July 10, 2012) – In a joint announcement today, certified public accounting firm Frazier & Deeter, LLC (Frazier & Deeter) and PCI Compliance and Security solutions provider ControlScan, Inc. (ControlScan), announced a strategic partnership to provide a broader range of security and risk compliance services for mid-market businesses.
Companies having their controls tested for PCI compliance can enter into a frustrating experience when required to have those same controls retested by a CPA for SOC examinations. The partnership between Frazier & Deeter and ControlScan offers a new level of efficiency and effectiveness for the companies’ mutual clients by enabling them to address PCI compliance and SOC reporting in a single, streamlined process.
“The professionals at ControlScan are experts in security and compliance, especially as it relates to the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard or “PCI DSS”,” said Seth McDaniel, Managing Partner of Frazier & Deeter. “ControlScan’s security solutions, combined with Frazier & Deeter’s Process, Risk and Governance Services (PRG), will provide our mutual clients with the means to minimize their risk in the most cost-effective manner possible. We expect this improved efficiency will be well received by our clients.”
“Frazier & Deeter is a large, nationally recognized and well-respected CPA firm. Their team of risk and compliance professionals inspires confidence in the firm’s client base, and that same client base can be confident in this value-added partnership,” said Joan Herbig, CEO, ControlScan. “We’re pleased that our security and compliance services can now be offered in tandem with Frazier & Deeter’s SOC services to streamline the overall risk reduction process for mid-market businesses.”
“ControlScan has an impeccable reputation for client service and we feel we have found a top-tier partner in the ControlScan team,” said Sabrina Serafin, PRG Leader and Partner at Frazier & Deeter. “Many organizations are seeking an effective security and compliance provider that truly understands the broader spectrum of business risk and the related compliance initiatives which have become so important to third parties in today’s environment.”
