Dr Robert provided a lot of information regarding to protect the identity of tax clients. This included various methods to ensure authentication of the respective client. The IRS does require practitioners to be able to document (drivers license) if their identity is compromised. Also, reviewed ways identity is stolen including safeguards to protect against identity theft.

This was an exceptional presentation and should be required for anyone handling sensitive client tax data. The presenters were terrific and were able to answer questions in the chat as the presentation progressed. Security compliance in our age of identity and data theft can be overwhelming. This webinar made it seem more possible and more manageable - offering clear and step-by-step guidance.

This was a very informative webinar. I am a CPA, no longer in public accounting, and considered myself pretty able to spot a scam. However, I realized now that I could be fooled. Thank you for this seminar. It was very enlightening.
