Information Security – Basic Safeguards for Practitioners Description and Learning Objectives

Description: All CPAs and Tax Practitioners deal with very sensitive client data. Cybercriminals are highly sophisticated, well-funded, and technologically adept at hacking computers and sealing information. CPAs and tax practitioners are some of their most highly desired targets. Cybercriminals desire the client data of all CPAs and tax practitioners. If these cybercriminals can successfully obtain the client information of CPAs and tax practitioners, they can file fraudulent tax returns for refunds, or commit identify theft. As a result, all CPAs and tax practitioners must protect their client’s information by protecting their computers, networks, and taking some simple safety approaches. This course will define information security, describe the numerous types of threats that exist today and define how to protect your computer systems and networks to keep client data safe.

Learning Objectives: at the end of this course, students will be able to:

  •          Define identity theft and identify how identity theft happens
