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!


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.


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


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 )


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.


Excellent speaker on what could be a complex topic. Great pacing and a lot of knowledge was provide with specific recommendations which can be (and were) implemented. One of the best, high-level cyber security classes I've had.
