Has Your Accounting Firm Taken The Right Steps To Secure Confidential Data?
As an accounting firm, you deal with sensitive, valuable financial data on a daily basis. The livelihood of your clientele is regularly accessed, updated, and managed through your IT, which is why cybercriminals work so hard to find ways to break into your system. Malware, adware, and spyware pose just as big a threat to your clients as they do your business and its employees. As the trusted manager of your clients’ vital financial data, are you 100% confident in your firm’s security?
The good news is that now is the perfect time to assess your IT security. Now that the tax season is over, you have the time and freedom to take stock of your IT environment to determine if you should be making upgrades, shoring up security, and developing more effective processes and procedures.

With our team of IT security professionals on your side, you can ensure a reliable level of security for the sensitive data your clients have chosen to trust you with. Otherwise, inadequate cyber security can result in serious consequences for your firm, including:
- Data Theft: Whether it’s your employees’ personal information or that of your clients, insufficient security will leave it all vulnerable to external threats.
- Brand Reputation: No matter what kind of damage control you attempt after a successful hack, your firm’s brand will never be the same, which will affect your profitability down the line.
- Further Costs: The cost of damage control, loss of business and any hefty fines for industry compliance violations will only add to your troubles after your business has been hacked.
