RR Donnelley’s RRD ActiveDisclosure(SM) Solution Earns SOC 2 Type II Audit

CHICAGO, July 27, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- R. R. Donnelley & Sons Company (Nasdaq:RRD) announced today that its RRD ActiveDisclosure cloud-based, financial disclosure management solution has completed a Service Organization Control (SOC) 2 Type II audit resulting in an unqualified opinion from Deloitte & Touche LLP that critical controls are in place and operating effectively to address security, availability and confidentiality of client information.

The RRD ActiveDisclosure solution allows pre-IPO and public companies of all sizes and vertical industries to collaborate on documents and to comply with disclosure requirements mandated by the Securities and Exchange Commission, and other regulatory agencies, by speeding up and simplifying the process of creating, managing, and submitting the required disclosure documentation.

“We are exceedingly pleased to have achieved this rigorous review of the RRD ActiveDisclosure solution,” said Craig Clay, Executive Vice President of Global Capital Markets at RR Donnelley. “This attestation was earned based on RR Donnelley’s existing internal controls, and reinforces the strength of our regulatory compliance solution.”

The SOC 2 report provides information that existing and potential customers of a service organization need to assess and address the risks associated with an outsourced service. The report provides assurance about the effectiveness of internal controls relevant to the system used by a service organization to process customers’ information.

“We’ve aligned our controls to the AICPA-defined criteria around security, availability and confidentiality. Since clients see us as a part of their process, this critical SOC 2 report gives our clients who use the tool the confidence that our existing controls can be relied upon and trusted,” Mr. Clay commented. “This achievement represents a real inflection point for our business. More clients are engaged with the RRD ActiveDisclosure tool than ever before, and we remain committed to providing them with the best and most secure experience possible.”
