Webinar(CA): K2’s Current Tech Crimes – Ripped from the Headlines

Description

Security is a top concern for CPAs. Yet many hacks result from organizations not implementing effective internal controls over information technology. Master critical IT-related controls using new case studies; all new for 2020. We’ll examine real-world breaches and security failures. You’ll better understand how to protect your company and data. In this fast-paced session we’ll cover IT-related controls you can use to prevent computer crimes, including identity and information theft, tax refund fraud, and more!
