Description

Security is a top concern for CPAs every year. Yet many hacks result from organizations not implementing effective internal controls over information technology. In this session, you will learn about critical IT-related controls using a case study approach with stories which are all new for 2020. More specifically, you will learn from real-world examples of breaches and security failures. Accordingly, you will understand better how to protect your company and its data. Attend this fast-paced session and learn more about IT-related controls you can use to prevent computer crimes such as identity and information theft, tax refund fraud, and more.
