“We regret to inform you, but your financial data might have been stolen.” It’s a scene straight out of your worst nightmare. It’s something that giant auditing firm Deloitte and a small Connecticut-based accounting firm had to deal with when they were hacked. Data breaches affect firms of all sizes, reiterating that the need for stronger cybersecurity for accounting firms is more real — and pressing — than ever.
When we think about business risks, we often overlook some of the most destructive factors. There’s so much focus on protecting assets from malicious cyber attacks and human error—especially in law firms—that most fail to prepare for the impact of natural disasters on your firm.
If this year taught us anything about technology, it’s that you should really focus more on protecting and securing your data. No matter how far digital technology has evolved; no matter how advanced today’s tools seem to be—they will remain vulnerable to a lot of different factors. So we thought this IT and tech checklist to achieve just that can help.
Whether you’re a legal administrator, office administrator or managing partner in your law firm, you need to lead the charge to create awareness around data privacy for lawyers in your firm. Examining the reasons behind cyber insurance claims, the numbers reveal that the biggest threat accounting firms face is internal — the lack of training among its employees and contractors.

What we all do behind closed doors, is our business, right? This “Aaron Smith” Sextortion Scam suggests otherwise.
Imagine this (or maybe you don’t have to imagine because if you’re a business owner in the triangle area):
You open your inbox, and some guy named Aaron Smith in broken English says something to the effect of,
“Hey, I hacked into your computer while you were on adult website X, I turned on your webcam and recorded you and your screen, and if you don’t pay me $5000, I’m going to post this video on your Facebook feed and show your aunt Martha, your boss’s wife and everyone else in your world.
I have your information, I know your password is Rover050467.”
Yep. This latest scam/internet con/email phishing attack is called “Sextortion” because it’s whole tactic is based around threatening to share what you do in private to all of your peers. This one’s a doozie to say the least.
