FoodLogiQ Completes AICPA Type 2 SOC 2 Examination of Security Control and Compliance Requirements in 2020


FoodLogiQ Connect once again meets security and availability standards set by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) with zero exceptions listed.

We are excited to announce that FoodLogiQ has successfully completed a Type 2 SOC 2 Service Organization Control (SOC 2) examination of the FoodLogiQ Connect platform. The audit was conducted by Hughes, Pittman and Gupton, LLP, an independently owned and operated member firm of CPAmerica, Inc., one of the largest associations of CPA firms in the United States. After a rigorous examination, independent auditors issued an unqualified opinion, confirming that FoodLogiQ once again meets the SOC 2 standards for Security and Availability Trust Services Principles with zero exceptions listed.

“Now our third annual independent audit report, this latest completion confirms FoodLogiQ’s continued alignment with these globally-accepted security best practices,” says Faith Kosobucki, FoodLogiQ’s Chief Financial Officer. 

SOC 2 compliance is a component of the American Institute of CPAs (AICPA)’s Service Organization Control reporting platform. The goal is to make sure that systems are in place to assure the security, availability, processing integrity, confidentiality, and privacy of customer data. SOC 2 is both a technical audit and a requirement that comprehensive information security policies and procedures are written and followed.  The SOC 2 reports are designed to examine and authenticate controls at a service organization, demonstrating a company’s ability to not only implement critical security policies, but also, to prove compliance over a period of time.
