CyberVista is currently developing a 100% online cybersecurity training program for accounting professionals and CPAs to combine fundamental cybersecurity principles into financial analysis and auditing.
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.
CyberVista is developing a new 100% online cybersecurity training course for accounting professionals that will be available in the coming months. If this is in alignment with your organization’s long term goals, be the first to know about its release by signing up for our product development updates.
What is the format of this course?
This program is a role-based training, comprehensive course that acts as a precursor to the Critical Knowledge training program. This course covers fundamental cybersecurity concepts and skills relevant to the day-to-day management and responsibilities of CPAs and related roles.
