Course Description

No industry is immune to the harmful effects of cybercrimes, and the financial damage can be devastating.

Accounting firms — which have access to sensitive financial and other personal client data — are a top target for cybercriminals.

Many small and medium-sized companies and firms might believe themselves to be at a lower risk than the bigger, higher-revenue firms, but this simply isn't the case.

“It may seem counterintuitive, but the risk of cyberattacks is disproportionally higher for smaller and medium-sized organizations, which tend to be much more reactive than proactive,". They need to realize that this can happen, and they are a target.

In fact, small and medium-sized accounting firms are often deliberate and primary targets for data theft. This is because they often host sensitive client data and can act as gateways to larger or more prominent parties. They also often lack the sophisticated defence infrastructure of larger firms. That's why it's more important than ever for accounting firms to understand which risks they might be vulnerable to, and to take steps to protect themselves.

In this online CPE webinar find out how companies like Bose, Colonial Pipeline, and JBS were compromised.  Dan Fusco with InnerPC, will then do a deep dive instruction on how to detect when a cybercriminal is attempting to steal information from your business. Also, Chandler Consonery, working with Mail protector, will be joining the webinar to give you inside information on an enterprise-level email filtering system and how it protects companies.
