Cyber/Cloud Security & Solutions

The world of business and accounting software is rapidly changing how businesses are able to process data.   Applications are emerging every day to help you improve workflow and move towards a more efficient, zero-data-entry environment.  Within this evolution, business owners need to understand how their data is protected at rest and during transmission.  When considering your options, the ability to ask the right questions and configure the tools appropriately has never been more important.

Regardless of the accounting programs you use, this session will help you:

  • Learn to navigate appropriate applications while keeping your data safe.
  • Understand the threats you face and the security controls available to mitigate your risks.
  • Increase efficiencies and control by using cloud-based tools.
