Security is top-of-mind for accountants and their clients this year. Recent hacks, like SolarWinds, have everyone concerned.
The world has changed a lot over 2020, and we’re not going back to 2019 any time soon, or perhaps never. We’ve seen remote work become mainstream. Client communication is now done remotely, using tools like Zoom. A whole slew of technology tools has changed the picture for accounting workflows. Employees now use their personal devices to conduct business. This all opens up exciting opportunities, especially given how many accountants not only survived but thrived, throughout the pandemic. But it also introduces new cloud accounting security challenges every firm, bookkeeper, and CPA needs to face.
