The ease of access to and rapid flow of information makes cybercrime different from real-world crimes. For example, the transformation of crime with the establishment of the computer and networked technologies leads to the shift of target from more tangible to less tangible forms in values of wealth; from things to ideas expressed in informational sources. Cybersecurity is a complex and ever-changing phenomenon. This cybersecurity course for accountants online is designed to help you navigate the complexities of this field. It is divided into four parts:

Part I: Adopt A Security Mindset - Cybersecurity is not just about techniques, it is also about a mindset, which is critical to crime prevention efforts. Part I introduces the concepts and understanding of the field of cybersecurity. It discusses some common cybersecurity myths and explains how to address them, and identifies cybersecurity frameworks for managing risk and reducing vulnerabilities. It also describes different types of cyberattacks and threat sources.

Part II: Create A Security-Conscious Culture - Cybersecurity is only important to an organization if the board and management make it so. A successful cybersecurity program requires ongoing governance. Part II explains how to design and implementation of a holistic IT governance. It also provides guidance on how to develop an effective security policy.

Part III: Apply Security Countermeasures - Cybercriminals are constantly evolving their capability to exploit vulnerabilities inherent in the global business ecosystem.  Organizations need an innovative approach; allocating and prioritizing resources to effectively protect critical assets.  Part III discusses various strategies to help an organization advance to a high level of performance in its security ecosystem. It also includes recommended steps that organizations can take to address cloud privacy and security concern. Finally, it identifies key controls designed to protect data on portable devices and the network connected to the devices.

Part IV: Meet Regulatory Compliance - Compliance is challenging for many organizations, especially in heavily regulated industries such as healthcare and financial services. Understanding significant implications in the disclosure and governance of personal information reduces the risks of non-compliance, which may result in civil and criminal penalties, loss of public trust and reputation, and unnecessary down time. Part IV highlights key federal laws that concern cybersecurity and privacy and discusses examples of states that have enacted comprehensive consumer data privacy laws. It also describes some legal challenges in the cross-border data flow. It also reviews the major laws for regulating the healthcare and financial services industries.

Cybersecurity- A Guide for Accountants (10 Hrs)

This course is one of a video series that document common issues met in working with Microsoft EXCEL. This course presents 10 cases which have been collected directly from real working environments and are intended to share with professionals using EXCEL so that they can learn how to leverage the tool in “the real world”.

For these cases to be relevant and organized, the course first provides a unique view of the Body of Knowledge (BOK) of EXCEL created by the instructor, which is a first in EXCEL training and publications. The BOK illustrates the usual learning path of an EXCEL learner, naturally from basic to intermediate, and then on to advanced to expert levels. The BOK documents the essential components of EXCEL, such as cells, sheets, files, tables, formulas, commands, macros, pivot tables, and power suite, and is open ended with the top level embracing more esoteric skills and future developments in EXCEL.

Under the guidance of the BOK, all cases are tailored to the corresponding knowledge level so that the learner may ascertain which areas they are good at and which require a bit more work. For each case, the course illustrates what the issues are, why the issues exist, and how to solve them. The course also encourages contributions from audience who believe there may be better ways of resolving these issues. Those suggestions from the audience will be shared and acknowledged in future parts of the series.

This course serves as a refresher for all professionals who need to sharpen their EXCEL skills for professional use.

Description :

All CPAs and Tax Practitioners deal with very sensitive client data. Cybercriminals are highly sophisticated, well-funded, and technologically adept at hacking computers and sealing information. CPAs and tax practitioners are some of their most highly desired targets. Cybercriminals desire the client data of all CPAs and tax practitioners. If these cybercriminals can successfully obtain the client information of CPAs and tax practitioners, they can file fraudulent tax returns for refunds or commit identify theft. As a result, all CPAs and tax practitioners must protect their client’s information by protecting their computers, networks and by taking some simple safety approaches. This course will define information security, describe the numerous types of threats that exist today and define how to protect your computer systems and networks to keep client data safe.
