Tax practitioners in public practice

Identity theft has become a serious issue with clients and practitioners alike. Fifty-nine percent of CPAs who answered the 2015 tax software survey conducted by the Tax Adviser and Journal of Accountancy said at least one of their clients was a victim of tax identity theft in the 2016 filing season. Covering cyber security and identity theft issues, this course will cover best practices for your firm and client data. This course provides examples of the ramifications of data loss and how it impacted the practitioner and the client so that in the event a breach does occur, you will know the steps to remedy the situation and prevent the problem from happening again.
