Workshop: Non-Techie Cybersecurity Program Essentials for Smaller CPA Firms
December 5, 2019 (8:30am-12:00pm)
INCPAS | November 15, 2019 | Minneapolis, MN
Exclusive training with Donny Shimamoto. Limited to 20 people.
As cybersecurity threats increasingly reach small businesses, and data breaches expand liability, it’s important for firms to ensure they have a strong IT security program. Designed for non-techie managing partners and firm administrators, this session will cover the essential elements of a strong IT security program that is pragmatic and implementable by smaller firms.
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 that includes a strong employee awareness and education process, is key to protecting your firm from being caught off-guard or even worse, perceived as 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.
Learn the essential elements of a strong IT security program that is pragmatic and implementable by smaller firms.
