4 free resources help accountants lead on cybersecurity risk

2 years ago · 1 min read

It’s a startling reality: A cyberattack occurs every 39 seconds and one out of every three businesses will experience a data breach within the next two years. Costing an average of $8.19M per breach in the U.S., it’s clear that cybersecurity risk management has never been more important—or needed.

As a CPA, you play a critical role in protecting your organization through a
robust cybersecurity risk management program. We’re here to help. The AICPA,
powered by the Association of International Certified Professional Accountants,
is bringing you the latest cybersecurity insights, tools and resources. Here
are a few I’d personally recommend:

  • Free CPE webcast – What do you need to know about cybersecurity in 2020? Join us on Wednesday, October 30 at 12pm ET to find out.

  • Quiz: Are you cybersecurity ready? – Test your cyber IQ and get advice on the best learning resources to guide you—including our cybersecurity certificate programs.

  • Cybersecurity resource center – Access the latest articles, podcasts, tools and more to grow your cybersecurity expertise.

  • You ask. We answer. – Send us your cybersecurity questions and our experts will answer them on a live-stream later this month. Stay tuned to this site for more information.

Cybercrime is not going away. In fact, it’s only going to become more prevalent. Your
organization’s best defense? A strong offense. Get out there and learn more
about what you can do to lead on cybersecurity concerns.
