Special Recognition Award honors outstanding contributions to ASEC projects


Chris K. Halterman, executive director, advisory services at Ernst & Young (EY), received the AICPA's Special Recognition Award for his work on the AICPA Assurance Services Executive Committee (ASEC), contributions to the committee's Trust Information Integrity Task Force, and leadership of its Cybersecurity Working Group.

The award recognizes individuals who have made an outstanding contribution to the success of a particular project or initiative.

In his ASEC role, Halterman helped put in place the foundation for SOC Reporting and helped develop and maintain SOC 2 guidance and the underlying Trust Services Criteria. Under his leadership, ASEC's Cybersecurity Working Group revised the Trust Services Criteria to support cybersecurity engagements and developed a set of cybersecurity description criteria, which provides companies with a common language to use in communicating key elements of their cybersecurity risk management program to stakeholders such as boards of directors and investors.
