Overview

A convincing argument can be made that it will be “when”, not “if”, one’s business will be the victim of some type of computer crime, fraud, or employee dishonesty. Many steps can be taken to minimize the risks, as well as transfer the risk through the proper insurance coverage. This webinar will discuss both, providing an overview of the various types of computer crime and fraud that can be perpetuated on an accounting or bookkeeping business, methods to help prevent them, and to better explain the sometimes confusing maze of insurance options. If you store, collect or transmit data, or manage an ERISA plan or funds in any form, this webinar is a must for you.
