Welcome to the IRS required Annual Cyber-Security Awareness Training Program!
As a trusted advisor to your clients, you must be committed to safeguarding their sensitive financial information and maintaining the highest standards of data security. However, with the growing sophistication of cyber-security threats, it is important that you also prioritize your own internal cyber-security practices and awareness.
This annual training program is designed to equip you with the knowledge and skills needed to identify and mitigate cyber-security risks that could potentially harm your firm, your clients, and your reputation. By completing this program, you will gain a better understanding of:
- The types of cyber-security threats and risks that you may face as a tax and accounting firm, including phishing attacks, malware infections, and social engineering scams.
- The best practices for password management and authentication, including how to create strong and unique passwords, and why two-factor authentication is important for protecting sensitive data.
- How to protect sensitive data and maintain client privacy through encryption, access controls, backups, and privacy policies.
- The risks associated with email and web browsing, and how to avoid falling victim to phishing attacks and other cyber-security threats.
- The importance of physical security and social engineering awareness, and how to prevent unauthorized access to important systems and confidential information.
- The steps to take in the event of a cyber-security incident, including incident response plans and procedures, timely reporting, and follow-up actions.
At the end of this training program, you will be better equipped to identify and avoid cyber-security risks, and to play an active role in maintaining a culture of cyber-security awareness and best practices at your firm. We encourage you to take this training seriously, and to apply the knowledge gained to your daily work activities.
