Committed to Protecting our Clients


Holtmeyer & Monson has successfully completed our System and Organization Controls (SOC) 2 Type II audit examination. With this SOC 2 Type II compliance certification, our financial institution clients can trust that their data, our processes and our procedures are of the highest quality and meet the stringent SOC 2 security and privacy standards set by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA).

Why SOC 2 Type II is critical for community lenders

Over the years, financial institutions have suffered costly data breaches which have escalated the due diligence requirements for their vendors. An AICPA SOC 2 Type II is the top industry attestation for security and compliance, and Holtmeyer & Monson is one of the only Lender Service Providers (LSPs) to have achieved this distinction.

“We built Holtmeyer & Monson based on trust, deep expertise, and ensuring the right processes are in place to work as a direct extension of our clients to help drive growth through SBA and USDA lending,” stated Arne Monson, President and Co-founder of Holtmeyer & Monson. “We’ve been delivering on this mission for over 40 years. Achieving AICPA SOC 2 Type II compliance is a time- and resource-intensive process; however, we knew it was a level of assurance we needed to offer our clients.”

More about the report

A SOC 2 Type II report must be renewed annually and focuses on the AICPA Trust Service Criteria. It examines a service provider’s internal controls and systems related to security, availability, processing integrity, confidentiality, and privacy of data. The AICPA guidelines attest to a company’s compliance and security practices. The SOC 2 Type II certification delves into the details of a company’s infrastructure service system throughout a specified time period.

It focuses on the following areas:

  • Infrastructure: The physical and hardware components that support our IT environment and help deliver services.
  • Software: Operating software and programs we use to facilitate our SBA and USDA lender services.
  • People: The personnel involved in the management, security, governance and operations to deliver services to our clients.
  • Procedures: All the manual or automated procedures that bind processes and keep service deliver working.
