On-Demand WebinarCybersecurity, Data Protection and Scams On-Demand Webinar<h3>Summary</h3> <p>This session was recorded at a recent NATP live event. </p> <p>This topic is very relevant in today’s tax practice. The way we share tax information today is very different than just 10 years ago. Everyone has a client who has gotten a call from the "IRS.” You may have gotten one yourself. Scammers are sending very realistic "IRS” letters to taxpayers. The threats are becoming more sophisticated daily. Think of the damage that can be done gathering multiple taxpayers’ data from one source, the tax professional. You may have already experienced a breach and not even be aware of it. Frightening? This webinar addresses scams, threats, prevention, data security requirements and steps to take in the aftermath of a breach. The smaller your firm is, the more imperative it is to attend.</p><iframe src="https://fast.wistia.net/embed/iframe/17c54edwdl" title="Scams Video" allowtransparency="true" frameborder="0" scrolling="no" class="wistia_embed" name="wistia_embed" allowfullscreen mozallowfullscreen webkitallowfullscreen oallowfullscreen msallowfullscreen width="640" height="360"></iframe> <script src="https://fast.wistia.net/assets/external/E-v1.js" async></script> <h3>Objectives</h3> <p>Upon completion of this course, you will be able to: <ul> <li>Recognize current tax scams.</li> <li>Be aware of IRS requirements for tax practice data security.</li> <li>Understand how to verify preparer/firm data.</li> <li>Become aware of possible threats to your firm.</li> <li>Assist clients who have been compromised.</li> <li>Format a response plan.</p> </ul> <h3>Course Details</h3> <p>This course includes presentation slides and exam questions to help you earn CPE.
