Accounting Firms are Counting on Their IT

Accounting Firms are Counting on Their IT

We’re right in the middle of tax season and accountants are having to manage potential attacks on their data. Since people depend on your organization to keep their most sensitive information secure, having an effective strategy to protect that information is extremely important. As an IT service provider, we have solutions to help accountants handle this issue. Let’s take a look. 

Securing an Individual’s Tax Data

Cybercriminals understand that accountants hold some of the most lucrative data there is, and tax time is an extremely stressful time for them. This stress leads to opportunities for cyberattacks. Of course, accountants aren’t the only profession that can make major mistakes protecting client data, it’s just that the data they are charged with protecting is extraordinarily sensitive. It just so happens that it is the data that hackers and scammers most covet.  

Even if these hackers decide the path of least resistance is to use ransomware as their modus operandi, the ransomware they use to lock down your organization’s network resources and data will put your organization in a really difficult situation, especially as April 30th rapidly approaches. 

Additionally, if your organizations work with larger companies, these businesses may start to think of you as a liability if you have problems securing their data. Losing control over the data your firm is trusted with is a telltale sign that your business is in trouble. This is why prioritizing data security is essential. 

Protecting Your Data

To protect your data, you need a backup and disaster recovery plan. If you are unfortunate enough to deal with a ransomware attack, the only way to skate through that situation is by restoring your data from backup. Not only that, it is a huge part of any continuity plan, regardless of what data you hold or what kind of business you have.
