Your Host: Roger Knecht, president of Universal Accounting Center

Remote work security is easily something we should discuss more often and it’s time we do it now.  Listen in as Roger and Hossein discuss the benefits afforded the accounting profession when using technology along with the areas of concern we don’t want to forget. They address both the why and how we should be securing our client data.  Of course we try to use technology to work efficiently but we also should consider a multilayered approach to security.  In fact, Hossein shares with us the 3-step approach:

  • protection,
  • detection,
  • response

He then points out which and where should you be spending your money.  This alone is a good reason to not miss this discussion.

Have you ever wondered what it means to be an asset custodian?  Well, listen in as they consider it and why it matters to accountants.

I’m sure you’ve also heard of Ransome Ware, but what should we really know?

Then there’s the advice you don’t want to miss, what is the weakest link in our security planning?  In fact, what is our first line of defense when it comes to cyber and remote work security?  Have your notepad ready!

Roger and Hossein will also go over a variety of other topics you don’t want to miss:

  • updates and patches
  • Two Factor Authentication, does it help?

Let’s understand that as accounting professionals that this is a trust-based business.

Among the many things discussed they’ll also go over some perks and benefits available to the profession.  Think of this, what does working remotely afford us within the accounting profession?

  • A larger pool of professional talent
  • A endless opportunity in client acquisition.

Alright, sit back, listen in and enjoy this conversation with Roger and Hossein.
