"Needling Worldwide has been a valuable partner for EXTEND Resources, helping complete our internal audit requirement and ensuring that we are well prepared for ISO 27001 certification and the related external audit. They were very detailed, thorough, and always available. They worked seamlessly within our OnTrack® compliance management platform to perform the audit. The Needling team provided good suggestions and explained feedback and guidance in a useful, practical way."
“Needling Worldwide has walked us through the ISO27001 and SOC 2 compliance and certification process. This includes communication with auditors, scheduling kickoff calls, and extended question and answer sessions to get the process started. They can also perform your internal audits--that's how we first got engaged with them--so that you will be ready. The word is out that they make the process easy for the auditors. It's been great from every perspective and we recommend them without reservation.”
When our company needed to undergo our first SOC 1 and SOC2 Type 2 audit, Needling Worldwide was there every step of the way to help ensure that we were prepared. The Needling Worldwide team assisted us with policy development, performing a risk assessment, conducting internal audit, delivering training for our audit team, and providing audit defense during our external audit. We found the internal audit that Needling Worldwide conducted to be invaluable in that it helped to ensure that our team had practice before going into the external audit, but also so that we had a chance to find issues and remediate quickly before they led to a finding on our external audit report. It was helpful to have an experienced partner who could help guide us through our first audit journey and give us confidence that we were prepared.

Our first engagement with Needling Worldwide was exceptional. We engaged Needling Worldwide to perform our internal IT audit implementing each of the FFIEC Information Security requirements. Their staff was very accommodating with locations, dates and times. They were highly professional, expedient and extremely detail oriented. Their results of the audit were fair, detailed and informative. We will use this audit as a clear roadmap to shoring up our areas that need attention in preparation of our (OFR) Office of Federal Regulations audit. Needling Worldwide has become an invaluable partner in keeping our organization compliant. We will continue to engage Needling Worldwide for all our FFIEC IT compliance needs including creating P&P and control documents. Thanks again to the entire staff at Needling Worldwide, our partner in IT and Security compliance.

Needling Worldwide is much more than a vendor to Whoa Networks. We rely on Needling as a valuable and indispensable business partner.

The Needling team has produced consistently excellent work product, providing internal audits, policy & procedure development, and external audit defense. Most importantly, the Needling team removes the anxiety associated with onerous regulatory compliance schemes. With Needling on our side to guide us, we are confident and at ease.

Last summer, we (Definitive Logic) decided to pursue our ISO 22301 (Business Continuity Management Systems) certification and engaged with Needling Worldwide to provide consultantcy support to assist in our preparation. Needling provided very competent consultants to work with our team to conduct a gap analysis of our current policies and procedures and assist with the creation of new policies and enhancements to existing ones. The internal audit conducted by Needling was extremely thorough and very closely mimicked the agenda and detail of an actual ISO audit and greatly increased our confidence and preparedness for the actual audit. As of result of Needling’s outstanding support, we completed both stages of our ISO 22301 with no findings and only a few minor OFIs. We definitely made the correct decision regarding our choice of consultants and, as a result, we have engaged Needling Worldwide for additional projects to assist with our preparation for CMMC and our ISO 9001 surveillance audit. We would highly recommend Needling Worldwide’s services for other companies who have similar needs
