Without the proper defense strategy in place, accounting and financial professionals can leave their data and critical systems susceptible to security hacks. Learn the difference between data privacy and security, the regulatory landscape, observations and threats, laws and compliance, and more at this networking breakfast and panel discussion sponsored by Accountants One and Proliant. Take advantage of this opportunity to earn two hours of CPE, which meets the CISA/CISM, CPA, CIPP, and education time for HRCI.
