TEXAS COMPLIANCE PENDING:

Texas requires a class be reviewed by enough students to assign earned CPE credits.  This course is still new enough that we are obtaining the reviews needed.   We recommend Texas CPAs check back soon. This process is usually finished within a few weeks.

 

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

Learning Objectives At the end of this course, students will be able to:

• Identify the importance of information security for CPAs and Tax Practitioners,

• Define the term “identify theft” and recognize how identify theft most commonly occurs,

• Recognize why CPAs and Tax Professionals are being targeted by cybercriminals,

• Recognize the importance of encrypting client data,

• Identify the importance of creating internal controls and a security plan to protect client data, and

• Recognize the actions that must be taken in the event of a breach of sensitive client identity data.

  • The CPE Discount Store offers a great selection of online CPE courses.   I was able to complete my course on my time frame which is a great way to take CPE.  Having the book as a reference for future work was also helpful.

This has to be one of the most poorly written courses I have ever taken. There were typos, conflicting answers in the review questions, poorly-worded statements and questions. I\'ve taken many better ethics courses over the years. This course was a disappointment!

EXCELLENT UPDATE FOR TAX PREPARATION

Great refresher course. Not wordy. Does a great job bringing me up to date as the computer programs do most of the work nowadays.

The last half or so of the course had nothing to do with divorce. The test was strange with question 107 seeming to have the man marry his daughter!
