Cybersecurity for Accounting Professionals
Certified Public Accountants (CPAs) and general accounting professionals are considered trusted advisors to organizations of all sizes and equally to individual taxpayers. They are responsible for educating clients on an array of risks and also providing advisory and attestation services. With direct access to client information, firms have added responsibility to not only ensure accuracy in financial documentation, expenditures, and investments, but also keep taxpayer information out of reach from threat actors.
By providing fundamental cybersecurity training for accounting professionals, they can be equipped with the knowledge and skills needed to be a strategic business partner within their firm and with clients on financial and cyber risks.
