Security Guide-How to protect your peopl

The IRS reports a 400% increase in identity theft issues. The FTC announces that tax preparers are the number one target for thieves. All busy offices have three types of assets: people, equipment, and data. In this dynamite class TaxSpeaker’s own IT director as well as TaxSpeaker’s president team up to identify the risks, but then to go way beyond and provide step-by-step instructions to mitigate the risks. With numerous guides and checklists, software recommendations and computer setting changes we help protect all 3 groups of your office’s assets. Windows 10 is the newest threat, and its unmodified use out of the box is a direct violation of IRS confidentiality rules-we show you how to make it compliant. This is a rare class that everyone in your office should take, not just tax preparers, with the latest 2017 guidelines for tele-commuting, remote workers, cell phone and tablet security and Wi-Fi security. Rewritten (again!) for 2017, the guide provides written policies on confidentiality, telecommuting, employee computer & internet use, security, disaster losses and more.
