Five Easy Ways to Keep Client Data Safe
Your clients trust you to prepare their tax returns and advise them on sensitive financial topics. They also trust you with data that needs to be properly safeguarded against online criminal behavior. There are actually a lot of things that you can do to ensure that confidential data remains confidential, with many of the suggestions, such as shredding all paper documents, easily accomplished. But there are other ways to safeguard firm data and to keep it out of the hands of criminals.
1. Install the proper safeguards
These safeguards include both anti-virus software and malware scanners. Both are designed to identify and stop threats to your computer system before they happen, and both are necessary to keep your data secure at all times.
2. Provide the necessary training to all team members
Your staff are accountants, not IT people, so they may not recognize a threat when they are presented with one. Keeping everyone up to speed on the latest threats can help keep your company data safe. A good idea is to have all employees go through some initial training as part of an employee onboarding process, with a refresher course taking place at least every six months, since threats change and evolve quickly.
3. Use complicated passwords
This goes for everyone that has access to a computer. Set parameters for passwords, such as making them a certain length. It’s also helpful to require symbols, lower case and upper-case letters, and numbers. While many of us tend to create passwords that are easily remembered, the more complicated the password, the less likely it is to be guessed by online criminals. But even a complicated password may not be enough (see #4).
4. Require multi-factor authentication on everything that requires a password
Today, it may not be enough to use a complex password. That’s why multi-factor authentication is a great idea. Multi-factor authentication requires you to input a passcode that is delivered through an outside system such as your cellphone or email. This helps identify the person attempting to access the system. On a side note, multi-factor authentication has saved me several times when hackers gained access to my apps using a stolen password. It may save you from a potentially catastrophic data breach as well.
5. Manage application accessibility
Managing application accessibility should start with the onboarding process. Remember, not every employee needs or should have access to all applications. Properly managing application access also means that terminated employees need to have their login and password privileges revoked once they leave.
There are other ways to keep your data safe from hackers, including using an online portal to communicate with your clients. A secure online portal allows you and your clients to share sensitive information, eliminating the need to share confidential documents through less secure means.
Your clients have put your trust in you and your firm. Make sure that you’re offering the proper safeguards for keeping their data safe.
نحن نعيش في عالم رقمي، حيث تلعب التكنولوجيا دورًا متزايدًا في كيفية عملنا وحياتنا. بالنسبة لـ CPA أو شركة المحاسبة، يمكن أن تكون مواكبة التطورات الجديدة صعبة.
We’re living in a digital world, where technology increasingly has a role in how we work and live. For the CPA or small accounting firm, keeping pace with new advances can be overwhelming.
After all, this is a profession where relentless deadlines and recurring tasks are par for the course. Yet it’s that relentless and repeating aspect of accounting work where automation can really shine—and shine a light on a better way to manage the workflow of your business.
4 benefits of automating your practice (or workflow)
Here’s the rub. To many, it seems daunting to consider automating what you do. Isn’t automation too complex and expensive for smaller firms? After all, you likely have proven practices and tools like Excel to keep you on track.
Rather than ceding control, consider automation essential to gaining control and confidence. Whether you are a one-person operation or a small firm with a small team, or a growing firm with contract, full-time and part-time people, and many clients to handle, automation answers the call.
Workflow automation gives accountants and bookkeepers added muscle and quick ROI. With the right tools, you can eliminate inefficient, manual hours required for repetitive tasks and focus on areas of greater impact, like expanding value-added services to clients.
Here are four ways automation can help your practice:
1. Track tasks and productivity with ease
With quarterly filings and year-end closings, punctuated by daily tasks and evolving requirements throughout the year, you are juggling a lot of data all of the time. With automation, you can track every task and every deadline with ease. For example, recurring payroll deadlines should be automated, likewise with tax. If you are recreating monthly tasks or projects, you’re wasting time along with margins (and sanity). Automating your due date creation is essential to being more productive with your resources and your bottom line.
2. Reporting metrics and ROI
Accounting firms are prized for timely, accurate results. Automation can make it so much faster and easier to produce reports, synthesize metrics and analyze data. For example, you should be able to quickly run “done vs due” reports to instantly gauge how well you’re doing against fundamental productivity goals. Again, it is power within to do more with less to streamline your workload and path to ROI.
3. Visibility into employee capacity and choke points
Beyond the more mundane recurring tasks, automation software can provide greater clarity into who’s doing what, who’s next in the workflow, and where any issues or choke points may lie. Oftentimes, having something as simple as a “next week” work view can help you pinpoint upcoming fires—especially today. With so many firms struggling with staffing issues, it is your best bet for insights and answers.
4. Increased collaboration
When everyone on the team works with the same automated tool, you empower the whole team to stay on the right page. The right workflow software will make it easier to share information, connect with others, and collaborate to solve problems and meet critical deadlines for clients.
In my work with accounting and bookkeeping firms of all sizes, I see a lot of diversity in how firms operate, their specialties and vertical focus. Yet there is a common trait I see post-automation. This profession can demand a lot of hours. Too many owners burn the midnight oil to keep all their clients and deadlines and tasks on track. Once they automate, they gain time back.
Some simple math for you to consider. Automation can save on average 30 minutes a day. If your hourly rate is $100/hour, you can realize a savings of $12,000 in your time that can focus on other areas to improve and grow your firm such as marketing, sales, recruiting, and pricing optimization. Think about that.
Your time is your most precious commodity. Use it wisely to manage your practice, serve your clients and grow your firm. Use tools that make you stronger, able to react faster, where you have critical data at your fingertips, not locked in a file cabinet.
With the right workflow software automation in your practice, you gain a valuable asset for reclaiming your time, refocusing on client service and more profitable services, and growing your client base.
يعد استيعاب الكثير من المعلومات مشكلة لا تنتهي بالنسبة لشركات المحاسبة من مواكبة التدفق المستمر لبيانات العملاء والامتثال والاتجاهات التنظيمية، فضلاً عن الاتجاهات الناشئة في التكنولوجيا والابتكارات الأخرى
Assimilating information is a never-ending battle for your accounting firms. From keeping up with the constant flood of client data, compliance and regulatory trends, as well as emerging trends in technology and other innovations, the struggle is real.
While no one will argue that investing time and energy into constant monitoring and responding to changes in client data, compliance, and regulatory information isn’t vital, the importance of understanding and responding to technology trends can sometimes be overlooked. However, it is information from emerging solutions that can give your firm the edge when it comes to effectively streamlining and better leveraging the data that is coming into your firm.
There are two key tech trends which, by now, should be on the radar and minds of every accounting leader: migration to cloud-based technology and the adoption of solutions utilizing artificial intelligence (AI). This is because they both, more than any other recent technology have had—and continue to have—profoundly positive and far-reaching effects on the accounting profession.
While much has been written about “getting into the cloud” and a large percentage of accounting firms are working at least partially in it, using web-based platforms to run part of their practice operations. They do so, in tandem or perhaps ahead of their business clients, many of whom are transitioning to the cloud.
The research and consulting firm Gartner names cloud computing “one of the most disruptive forces of IT spending” and attributes its influence through 2020 on more than $1 trillion in technology spending. This trend is expected to continue for at least the next decade.
In contrast, AI is still a term which seems foreign to many accounting professionals, even though the technologies that it encompasses such as machine learning and OCR have been widely used for years. If the idea of AI still conjures up images of futuristic applications which may never become practical for your firm, it is important to shift your mindset in order to be prepared for the future benefit these technologies can bring your firm.
For example, AI technologies can eliminate many of your firm’s administrative and repetitive task workflows given its ability to make it possible for machines to learn from experience, adjust to new information, and use it to accomplish human-like tasks. Some applications you may already be using which incorporate AI include expense management and accounts payable platforms.
AI also makes it possible for large volumes of data to be processed and analyzed quickly, freeing up staff to do more value-added engagements. A recent study by Big Four firm PwC reported that 72 percent of business decision-makers believe that using technologies with AI lets their employees focus on more meaningful and creative work.
In addition to speed and agility when processing information, and increasing the availability of strategic insights from the information extracted, AI also adds additional security for the storage of sensitive financial data. This is another significant reason that this particular development will continue to grow in importance across the profession.
