(September 30, 2022 – New Orleans, LA) – Bellwether Technology Corporation has successfully completed its SOC 2 Type 2 audit and received attestation that the processes they use to handle sensitive information meets high standards for security.
The Security and Organization Controls (SOC) framework is the basis for trust principles established by the American Institute of Certified Accountants. Use of this framework extends beyond the accounting industry to any company that wants to demonstrate to customers that they have the correct tools, processes and infrastructure in place to protect the data that they gather and store.
Level 2 signifies that specific attention was directed to data stored in the cloud. Type 2 indicates that the SOC audit took place over an extended period of time, which assesses not only that security controls are in place but that they are effective.

“Security is a complex, multi-faceted necessity,” said Steven Ellis, President of Bellwether. “We wanted a way to communicate to our clients that the standards we follow are aligned with best practices, and validated by a third-party through this SOC 2 Type 2 accreditation.”
