Conference

INCPAS | November 15, 2019 | Minneapolis, MN

 

Session: 8:30am-12:00pm

Course Description

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.
