How Non-Techies Can Craft a Cybersecurity Program  

November 1, 2019 

MNSCPA | November 1, 2019 | MN


Session: TBA

Course Description

With the increasing cybersecurity threats reaching to small businesses and expanding liability from data breaches, it’s becoming even more important for firms to ensure that they have a strong IT security program. Many template IT security policies and procedures are overkill for a smaller entity. A pragmatic IT security program that balances reasonable polices with technical measures and includes a strong employee-awareness and education process is key to protecting your firm from being caught off-guard, or even worse, being perceived as being negligent in protecting your clients’ and employees’ private data.  If you are handling credit card information, a comprehensive IT security program is required by the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards even for small businesses.  Designed for non-techie managing partners and firm administrators, attend this session to walk through the essential elements of a strong IT security program that is pragmatic and implementable by smaller firms.
