Cyber Security For Accounting Firms & CPA’s

Cyber Security Requirements & Solutions for Accounting Firms & CPA’s.

CPAs are entrusted with sensitive financial information of their clients, making cybersecurity a critical aspect of their professional responsibilities. In the United States, CPAs are required to comply with various regulations and standards to ensure the security and confidentiality of data. One of the key regulations that CPAs need to follow is the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA), which mandates financial institutions, including CPAs, to protect the privacy and security of their clients’ personal information.

Legislation and what is required of you.

Sarbanes-Oxley Act

CPAs are often subject to the requirements of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX), which imposes strict regulations on financial reporting and internal controls. While SOX does not specifically address cybersecurity, it indirectly impacts CPAs by emphasizing the importance of maintaining accurate and secure financial data.

Service Organization Control 2

The American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) has developed the SOC 2 (Service Organization Control 2) framework, which focuses on the security, availability, processing integrity, confidentiality, and privacy of data processed by service organizations, including CPAs. CPAs may undergo SOC 2 audits to demonstrate their compliance with these security standards.

Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency

In addition to these regulations and standards, CPAs are encouraged to stay informed about emerging cybersecurity threats and best practices through resources provided by organizations such as the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA).

 

CPAs are required to implement robust cybersecurity measures, such as encryption, access controls, regular security assessments, and employee training, to safeguard their data and their clients’ data from cyber threats. By staying informed about regulatory requirements and industry best practices, CPAs can effectively mitigate cybersecurity risks and protect the confidentiality and integrity of financial information.
