Firms of all sizes are becoming increasingly concerned about cybersecurity and with good reason. Scammers and phishing organizations are now targeting large and small firms, and because they are working as organized and methodical “businesses” they are very good at what they do. The worst part is that some breaches are not discovered for years. In the meantime, the phishers are harvesting data that they will either sell or use to demand ransom until you pay up.
Having a good plan to protect your firm is vital. It only takes one breach to set off a chain of events that can ruin your business overnight. Most breaches happen when email is used as the primary method of communication with clients. Come and learn the main techniques that cybercriminals use today and how your firm can protect itself and the clients who trust you.
In this webinar, Chris Farrell, CPA, CEO of Liscio, and Nick Wells from Rush Tech Support will discuss the key ways that firm owners can optimize their cybersecurity without going crazy. Practical tips will be shared, including how not to be a victim of a phishing attack, when you need to bring in qualified IT help, and how to close the email “open door” for cybercriminals by moving to a secure (and closed) communication system for staff and clients to use together.
Chris has spent his career working both as an accountant and with accountants. Chris started at Arthur Andersen and served as a public-company CFO prior to Liscio. For the last decade, Chris has worked with accountants to improve business operations, efficiencies and profits.
