European-Based Fintech Provider Lendsum Selects Porter Keadle Moore for SOC Reporting

February 4, 2019

ATLANTA--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb 4, 2019--Porter Keadle Moore (PKM) announced that end-to-end lending platform Lendsum has selected the firm to conduct its SOC 1 and SOC 2 reporting. PKM is an accounting and advisory firm that serves public and private financial institutions, insurers, technology companies and entrepreneurial small businesses.

As financial institutions continue to increase their scrutiny of third-party vendors, Lendsum recognized its need to provide up-front, independent reporting on its internal security procedures and controls. After evaluating several firms, Lendsum selected PKM to conduct its SOC 1 and SOC 2 reporting due to the firm’s extensive experience working with financial technology (fintech) companies, banks and credit unions. The provider also cited PKM’s willingness to provide superior feedback and support throughout the process as selection drivers.

The Madrid, Spain-based provider, rooted in a machine intelligence background, helps financial institutions navigate and simplify access to stored data, enabling banks and credit unions to make smarter, faster lending and credit decisions for customers and members.

“Porter Keadle Moore has been a true partner throughout the start of our SOC reporting, and has spent a considerable amount of time planning every step to ensure operations go uninterrupted,” said Alex Thiriez, co-founder and CEO of Lendsum. “With their proven knowledge and strategic guidance, it enables our organization to proactively ensure compliance to our community financial institution clients as they work to compete with their regional and national counterparts.”

“Regulatory pressures are forcing banks and credit unions to be increasingly stringent in their requirements when evaluating and working with fintech or service providers, and rightfully so,” said Mike Morris, Systems Partner for Porter Keadle Moore. “Lendsum’s SOC 1 and SOC 2 reporting is key to demonstrating that it has superior controls and protections in place to support engagement with potential clients and financial institutions.”
