SOS is a subsidiary of Thomas Howell Ferguson P.A. CPAs (THF). THF was established in July 1993, to continue the legacy firm of the Tallahassee office of Ernst & Young. Early on, THF saw an opportunity to specialize in the SOC area due to the growing technology and insurance client base of the firm. Since CPAs are the premier providers of SOC reports, it was a logical fit to build a team of CPAs who would specialize in this area.
The American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) is the governing body for SOC audits. As such, CPAs participate in continuing professional education (CPE) to maintain their license. This puts them front and center on the issues surrounding systems and organization controls. Additionally, CPA firms performing SOC engagements must meet the peer review standards that ensure the quality of and reliance upon their work.
Specializing in this specific area is just one example of the many ways that THF is meeting the needs of its clients. For additional information on THF and their industry specialties, please visit www.thf-cpa.com/.
