Bling Nation, a provider of mobile payments services that connect financial institutions, businesses and consumers through mobile tap-and-pay purchases at the point of sale, announced the completion of its SAS 70 Type II audit and its receipt of the related audit report. Bling Nation obtained the report from Ernst & Young following that firmâs completion of an independent assessment of the controls over the companyâs business processes.
Statement on Auditing Standards No. 70 (SAS 70) is a widely recognized auditing standard developed by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants, against which service providers report control activities and processes to customers and their auditors. Bling Nation selected Ernst & Young due to the firmâs global leadership and expertise in the industry. As part of the audit process, Ernst & Young closely examined and tested the operational environment and the companyâs internal controls.
âThe successful completion of our SAS 70 audit validates the stringent standards we apply to our internal controls,â said Wences Casares, co-CEO of Bling Nation. âThe audit is an integral part of our commitment to offering secure and reliable service to our customers.â
