Course Description

Course Description

The annual global cost of cybercrime is high and getting higher all the time. In the United States alone, the FBI received reports of 467,361 complaints involving $3.5 billion in 2019. 

 

Certain business organizations, among which are those referred to as “financial institutions,” are charged by the FTC with taking particular steps to protect their customers’ financial information. Included in the category of financial institutions are professional tax preparers.

 

Professional tax preparers normally maintain a significant amount of taxpayer information in various files—electronic and paper—that would be treasured for cybercriminals. We have heard of many fellow tax professionals who have been hit with Ransomware attacks or had their computer networks hacked.

 

As tax professionals, we seem to be under constant assault from cyberhackers.

 

Did you notice that when you renewed your PTIN, you had to answer the question about protecting your data security?

 

What are your legal obligations to protect our data and the clients' data?

 

What can we do and what should we do?

 

This CPE Tax course will answer all such questions related to data security for tax professionals.


Following are the major topics covered in this CPE webinar:


  • Safeguarding taxpayer data
  • Review IRS Publication 4557
  • Protect your clients, protect yourself
  • What have we learned from the latest IRS Security Summit
  • IRS Identity Protection PIN
  • Identity Theft Affidavit
  • Cybersecurity Insurance

Learning Objectives

  • To discuss how to affirmatively answer the PTIN renewal question regarding protecting data security.
  • To explain what steps to take to safeguard taxpayer data.
  • To discuss the latest update for the IRS Security Summit.
  • To analyze our obligations in case of a data breach.
  • To investigate what to do when your client's identity has been compromised.
  • To analyze if you need Cybersecurity Insurance.

Recommended For

  • The IRS-approved CE course is recommended for EAs, Maryland tax Preparers, CPAs, CITPs, CISA, and all other professionals desiring to learn tips for data security against cyber crimes.
