A SOC 2 examination is performed in accordance with AT Section 101, Attest Engagements (AICPA, Professional Standards).

A SOC 2 examination is widely recognized, because it represents that a service organization has been through an evaluation of their control activities as they relate to the applicable Trust Services Principles and Criteria.
“Our customers have shared their feelings and concerns over the importance of security and confidentiality when handling their sensitive data” said AccuZIP, Inc. President and CEO Steve Belmonte.
