Description

We are happy to offer this complimentary program to our members. Nonmembers will be charged a fee to register.

Security. It’s a word that strikes fear into the hearts of business leaders and consumers. 

The  COCPA Member Connections Committee (MCC) presents this Free CPE event-

In the accounting field, one component of security is SOC 2 compliance, a component of the American Institute of CPAs (AICPA)’s Service Organization Control reporting platform. Its goal is to make sure that systems are set up so they assure 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 be written and followed.

Join COCPA’s Member Connections Committee (MCC) for this free hour of CPE as we look at some of the most commonly misunderstood areas of SOC 2 and how you and your organization should approach this challenge.
