Course Description

Cyber criminals have discovered that tax and accounting firms have a wealth of personal information stored on their local computer networks, and that your office network is the weakest link in the chain of custody for a taxpayer’s most personal financial information. To put a finer point on it, in the era of COVID-19 social distancing rules, you are likely managing some or all of your business, and working from home or in a non-public-facing way.

Whether you work remotely or in the office, how do you secure your network? Securing your office systems in a local or wide area network environment is required for retention of taxpayer data. Having a good, foundational understanding of your responsibility to secure your clients’ data and how cyber thieves operate is the best way to secure your data, and should let you sleep a little better at night!

This Online Webinar is designed for individuals who would like to obtain a basic understanding of cyber-security. You have probably heard of some of the more common types of cyber crimes such as ransomware, spyware, computer viruses, phishing, denial of service attacks and hacking. This course is designed to familiarize participants who are not IT experts on cyber-security risks and internal controls. We will cover the material in a plane language, nontechnical manner. We will cover what you need to know, but not how to write the computer programs or code. 

This course would be appropriate for CPAs, CFEs, CMAs, CIAs, CFFs, MAFF, CGMAs, CFOs, CEOs, business owners, business managers, internal auditors, external auditors, corporate accountants, government accountants and risk management personnel.

  • To identify how criminals commit acts of cyber fraud
