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


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

FoodLogiQ, the leading SaaS provider of traceability, food safety and supply chain transparency solutions, today announced that it has successfully completed a Type 2 SOC 2 Service Organization Control (SOC 2) examination of its 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, our auditors issued an unqualified opinion, confirming that FoodLogiQ meets the SOC 2 standards for Security and Availability Trust Services Principles with zero exceptions listed.

SOC 2 compliance is a component of the American Institute of CPAs (AICPA)’s Service Organization Control reporting platform. Its 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.

FoodLogiQ is pleased to provide our first annual comprehensive independent audit report attesting to our alignment with globally-accepted security best practices,” says Faith Kosobucki, FoodLogiQ’s Chief Financial Officer. “AICPA’s SOC 2 examination process is the industry standard-bearer for measuring the compliance of technology-based service organizations that store customer data in the cloud. Our customers and their stakeholders can rest assured that we are compliant and have effective controls in place to protect and secure their data.”
