Security is arguably the most important concern for accounting professionals today. Cyber attacks are not only on the rise, but scammers are now targeting smaller firms as well as the big guys. It only takes one breach to set off a chain of events that can ruin your business overnight.
Most breaches happen when email is used as the primary method of communication with clients. Come and learn the various methods that cybercriminals are using today to gather usernames and passwords and “walk in the front door” of your firm. Once in, they have access to all your clients’ sensitive information and can ruin their financial lives as well as yours.
Luckily, there are things you can do to protect yourself. In this webinar, Chris Farrell, CPA, and Brian Johnson, Chief Security Officer of Armorblox, will discuss key trends and actionable items to protect your firm and your clients moving forward.
