A-lign Security and Compliance releases a new whitepaper by Gene Geiger, available on their website.
Geiger addresses concerns for those service organizations whose service does not impact the internal controls over financial reporting. He asks "what does the new AICPA requirements mean for you? Can your organization benefit from engaging an independent CPA firm to perform a SOC 2 audit?"
