Course Description

Businesses today are constantly facing new risks, and it can be challenging to keep up with the changes in technology and best practices for protecting your business.

With the onset of the COVID-19 virus and the shutdown of the worldwide economy what new risks exist for businesses?

The criminals came up with new scams within days of the virus outbreak.

One of the most effective ways to ensure your organization is taking the correct steps to mitigate risks is to develop a set of internal controls that ensure your processes, policies, and procedures are designed to protect your valuable corporate assets and keep your company secure and intact. Internal controls help your employees carry out their jobs in a way that protects your organization, your clients, and your bottom line.

  • Best security practices for people who are IT experts on cyber-security risks and internal controls.

Dr. Robert provided an excellent period of instruction. Additionally, he answered many participant questions throughout the webinar who added to the course content. Outstanding course. Recommended for all tax practitioners!

MB

Your insight into the primary methods used by "hackers' or opportunists was very accurate. Prevention via training & awareness is essential and emphasized in this Webinar.

DH

Great speaker and this is such a relevant topic, especially when so many of us are working from home and using our own computers. This was an excellent and informative course. I have incorporated many of the website recommendations given during this training

MD

Very practical suggestions were given and I appreciated the real life scam, hacking and phishing references. Sad this is what happens with great technological advances (but that's the concupiscence of man). I'll share this with out IT people ( if they'll listen to me ). I took good notes, so will review and check the slides at a later date so I sound like I know what I am talking about ( before I communicate with out IT head )

OS

This course on IT Security was very informative. I work for a large firm, so all this is handled internally with great SPAM factors and security awareness, but for a small firm that may not have the resources, this is great information.

RJ

I can always count on lots of practical current information from this speaker. Good presentation.
