All Tax Practitioners deal with very sensitive client data. Cybercriminals are highly sophisticated, well-funded, and technologically adept at hacking computers and stealing information. Tax practitioners are some of their most highly desired targets. If cybercriminals can successfully obtain the client information retained by tax practitioners, they can file fraudulent tax returns for refunds or commit identify theft. As a result, tax practitioners must protect their clients’ information by protecting their computers and networks and by taking some simple steps to keep their client data safe. This course will define information security, describe the numerous types of threats that exist, and define how to protect computer systems and networks from attack.
