Cybersecurity 101 for Professional Advisors - 10 June 2021 (On Demand)


Practical steps can execute in your business to improve your cybersecurity right now.

As technology continues to advance at an exponential rate, professional advisors are being put under increasing pressure to keep up. There is however a danger that arises from the rapid adoption of technology to increase productivity – it often leads to the unintended consequence of increased risk if we neglect to pay sufficient heed to cybersecurity.

We all recognise that cybersecurity is a serious issue and one which is becoming increasingly important. Unfortunately, we suffer from inertia because we don’t always know where to start.

This session will provide you with some actionable steps that you can introduce right now to protect your data, and that of your clients. These measures can make a big impact on your overall security position without making a big impact on your budget.

We will discuss how you can utilise tools such as:

  • Password managers
  • VPN’s
  • Hardware Keys
  • Encryption tools

And by doing so, drastically reduce your attack vector surface area, and ensure maximum compliance with the Privacy Act and Notifiable Data Breaches scheme.

We will also highlight some common pitfalls that can occur when accountants and professional advisors embrace technology without conducting the necessary due diligence.

What you will learn

Participants will gain an understanding of the responsibility we all have over our client data, increase their awareness of cybersecurity risks as well as strategies that can be implemented to mitigate them.

You will learn:

  • To identify critical areas of weakness within your business
  • To understand the immediate steps you can take to improve your security standing
  • Which tools to evaluate to help you navigate the security landscape
  • the key risks, opportunities, strengths and weaknesses when utilising cloud solutions

the importance of cybersecurity and how it integrates with your overall compliance obligations
