Course Description

Are you concerned about how cybercrime and data theft could affect your business operations? Does your business intend to spend a significant percentage of its budget on security this year?

If the answer is yes, you need to focus at least some of your efforts on securing your email communications.

In most accounting firms, email remains the primary communication channel, meaning that email security needs to be a primary focus for firms.

It’s easy to think that just because you use email passwords or even a password management tool, you’re safe from cyber threats.  This is not the case.

In fact, email is the most common method of attack for cyber-criminals targeting accounting firms.

Security should be on top of mind for accounting firms, given the latest spates of ransomware attacks and the constant threat of phishing and scams.  The stats are alarming - 40% of all breaches that arose from malware came from clicking a link in an email.  5% of breaches are not discovered for over a year.  You’ve trained your staff, but what about your clients?  How do you convince them to stop sending you sensitive information via email?  Join Chris Farrell, CPA and Rob Ferrini of McGowan Pro Insurance as they cover key things that accounting firms can do to address email security concerns. 

This online CPE course is well-suited for any accounting, tax, bookkeeping or financial professional who needs to exchange sensitive data with their clients and wants to make the process secure, easy, and a seamless part of their client's day.
