Belonging to the school of thought that new cars are for the birds, I have nearly 250,000 miles on my 14 year old SUV. In some ways, it’s a point of pride, but I must admit that the engine doesn’t purr quite like it once did.With each tire rotation, brake replacement, or can of fuel booster, I wonder if it would be best to break down and finally get a new vehicle. In fairness to my vehicle, my demands have changed over the years. I have asked the vehicle to perform in ways that it wasn’t necessarily designed for, or at least not designed to do very well. Certainly the list of reasons to replace the vehicle has grown long over time, and while I am adept at “patching” the problems, I know that the only solution is to replace the vehicle. As a SOC 2 / 3 expert, I believe this same analogy applies to the AICPA’s Trust Service Principles and Criteria (TSPC).
