This examination was performed by 360 Advanced, a respected national Qualified Security Assessor and Certified Public Accounting firm based in Tampa, FL.

 “Maintaining compliance with the highest level of information security standards is vital to ICS remaining on the forefront of our industry.” commented Dennis Fish, Information Technology Director. “This is the third year we have completed the SOC 2 audit process. Each year we see increased value in having this evaluation performed. Quite simply, it validates the year-round efforts of our staff and makes us a better company.”
