The IRS has recently updated its guidelines for data and cyber security, imposing new responsibilities on tax preparers to safeguard taxpayers' personal information. This webinar by industry expert Dr. Robert K. Minniti, DBA, CPA, CFE, Cr.FA, CVA, MAFF, CFF, CGMA, PI is tailored for tax professionals who handle client data and seek a comprehensive understanding of data and cybersecurity.

While you may be familiar with common cybercrimes such as ransomware, spyware, computer viruses, phishing, vishing, spoofing, data breaches, denial-of-service attacks, and hacking, this session aims to demystify these threats for those without an information technology (IT) background. The goal of this session is to help tax professionals grasp the risks associated with data breaches and cybersecurity and to implement effective internal controls.

During the session Dr. Minniti will review the IRS's recommendations for securing taxpayer information, covering the material in plain language, free from technical jargon. This webinar will inform you about what you need to know to protect client data, without delving into the complexities of programming or coding.

Topics covered include the IRS guidance for Written Information Security Plans (WISP), the Federal Trade Commission’s Safeguards Rule, and the requirements outlined in the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act. Join us to enhance your knowledge and ensure compliance with the latest data and cybersecurity standards.
