If you think your accounting firm is safe from cybercrime, consider that 43% of cybercrime targets small/medium sized firms like yours, more than any other segment.
62% of firms have been found to have insufficiency security measures/policies in place that leave them exposed to breaches even though they reported being up-to-date.
So if you believe you’re not at risk, you need to reconsider your position.
Most firms within the accountancy sector underestimate the threat they face from cyber attacks, believing that high profile financial organisations are the more obvious targets.
If you’re one of them, we strongly urge you to reconsider your position.
The truth is that...
The client data you handle is highly valuable, while your security measures are likely less secure than those of the large firms.
Still think you’re safe? Consider this...
According to the University of Maryland, cyber attacks now occur every 39 seconds. And 43% of those focus on small businesses (more than any other sector). Especially those that handle valuable financial data. And since COVID-19 hit, attacks are up at least 37%.
But here’s the good news: 95% of breaches are caused by human error that anyone on your team could make.
Why is that good news?
Because it’s something you can start taking action on today. You can quickly and easily train them to avoid the vast majority of attacks. When they learn to spot cybercrime attempts they’re far less likely to click on fraudulent links. Or inadvertently share secure information with a criminal.
CPAs around the world become victims of cybercrime every day...
Our cybersecurity experts worked hard to ensure this training was something that would genuinely support our clients’ security.
They analyzed the most recent information on cybercrime in the accountancy sector and put together a training presentation that will immediately level up cybersecurity at your firm...
And, as stated previously, by doing so you’ll be able to dramatically reduce your risk for user error, which accounts for up to 95% of breaches.
Which is why this training is a must have for your team.
We made this training as comprehensive and easy to implement as possible. Inside we provide:
The answer to that question is two-fold…
We want to help as many of our neighboring CPAs remain secure during what is arguably the most unsecure time in recent history.
Sometimes when we connect with a firm by doing trainings like this they ask us to support their additional security upgrades. And sometimes they don’t, and that’s fine with us.
In the end, those that get the training are much better off and those that need more help get what they need to remain completely secure. It’s a win-win for everyone. Either way, this allows you to take a giant leap towards securing your people and your firm.
We know making a presentation on a topic you’re not entirely familiar with can be difficult or uncomfortable. Which is why we want to make this really easy for you.
Cybercrime is at a level we haven’t seen in recent years and attacks on financial firms occur every day.
Securing your firm starts with training your people to instinctively avoid cybercrime.
This is the tool you use to do that.
