EVENT DESCRIPTION

‘Is it secure?’ that is the top question that CPAs ask about cloud-based software applications. There is no simple answer, rather you need to invest in conducting due diligence on the particular product to make sure you are satisfied with the integrity of the service provider and the security of your data.

The topics that will be covered in this course include: • What data security measures to look for in a cloud application • Understanding the data backup and recovery policies and procedures • Evaluating the internal controls in place with SOC (Statement of Controls) reports • Understanding the role of data encryption • Understanding the service provider’s Terms & Conditions
