Last week I keynoted LogPoint’s customer conference with a talk about how to extract value from security data. Pretty much every company out there has tried to somehow leverage their log data to manage their infrastructure and protect their assets and information.

Although it’s incredibly helpful to go through a checklist when ensuring SOC 2 compliance, don’t forget that SOC is ultimately about giving customers what they paid for and keeping them safe.
