SOC for Service Organizations (SOC 2) – Tampa FL
Many businesses and organizations in Tampa and across Florida provide services that require the updating, and processing of sensitive personally identifiable information (PII). This may include social security, bank account, credit card numbers, home address, and more. Ensuring adequate protections are in place is not only necessary to prevent breaches, but also to ensure customers and prospects about the quality of cybersecurity controls. In fact, many expect to see a System Organization Control (SOC 2) report before doing business with a company.
What is a SOC 2 Report?
This report provides essential information to customers, vendors, and others, that require assurance about the security of controls, availability, and integrity of systems used to process confidential data. They play an important role on organizational oversight, vendor management programs, risk management, internal corporate governance, and regulatory oversight. Only a licensed CPA firm is permitted to conduct these assessments and render an opinion on the quality of controls.
