Accounting firms have risk due to the extremely sensitive information they access and store. A breach at your firm will often compromise PII (personally identifiable information) resulting in client data being stolen or held for ransom, ultimately putting the firm in a very poor position. Many states now have extremely stringent breach notification rules requiring you to notify individuals who have had their data compromised. The loss of tax returns and financial data not only impacts the firm, but your clients as well.
Firms will have to deal with the cost of the breach and the negative PR that occurs as a result of the breach.
Black Talon Security can help firms implement advanced security measures to protect client data and insure business continuity. We do this by helping the firm implement the following technologies/services:
Virtual CISO (Chief Information Security Officer)
Development and Implementation of SOPs (Standard Operating Procedures)
Is your firm positioned to properly defend against an attack?
