A typical accountant exchanges hundreds, possibly thousands, of documents with their clients over the course of a year. These documents contain sensitive personal and financial information, and travel through computer networks and systems with varying degrees of security.
In a single day, any one of those documents might be accessed from a number of locations – from home, at the office, over Starbucks WiFi, even on an airplane. The question is – is your data protected at every point of interaction?
In this webinar, SmartVault security experts will help you establish what security professionals call a "security mindset." We’ll address security risks facing accounting document management and workflow, as well as common security pitfalls and best practices.
