2020 Innovation – Closing the gate after the horse has bolted

Date Added | July 24, 2020

As we continue to work from home we are seeing more problems with cyber security than ever before.  This issue is extending well beyond our own firms into our clients and is causing some concern for ourselves, our team and our clients (and their team as well).

If you feel your firm is exposed to the risks of cyber crime this is an important area to address, especially for accountancy firms.  The delicate financial information and personal information about our clients is extremely valuable to an unscrupulous person.  If a password were somehow released into the hands of some unscrupulous people, the damage that they could cause by accessing your servers and your clients information would be almost unbearable to think about.

Therefore we must take this opportunity, during the summer if necessary, to ensure that we have shut the gate before the horse has bolted.

There are two partners that spring to mind at 2020 who are able to point you in the right direction:
