Cyber Implications for the Accounting Profession – Live Webinar Oct 18, 2024
In an era dominated by digital advancements, the protection of sensitive financial information is paramount.

Our information is increasingly vulnerable, and we are in the precarious spot of having our business and personal data exposed—whether we like it or not.  However, attempts to regulate activities on the internet through territorial jurisdiction will be problematic because cyberspace and e-commerce are inherently international.  What are the implications of this for industry and commerce and what does this mean for the accounting profession?



  • Learn how the architecture of the internet impacts cybersecurity practices in the accounting profession
  • The significance of safeguarding Personal Identifiable Information (PII) in accounting
  • General Data Protection Regulation (GDRP) framework and its relevance to accounting practices
  • The Changing legal landscape in the United States



  • Recognize how the internet is structured and how it is governed
  • Interpret how legal changes may impact the approach companies take to secure, store, utilize, and retain PPI
  • Summarize the core principles of GDPR and their application to financial data protection.



You will require an Internet connection. Participants are able to submit questions and comments during the session via a Q&A text panel. Terms, conditions, pricing and services subject to change.
