We live in a digitally connected world where privacy issues are not always top of mind. People often spend more time thinking about whether they locked the front door than they do about threats to their data security. But smart cybersecurity starts with the individual.

That’s why it is crucial for CPAs to keep pace with evolving technologies and understand the best practices necessary to secure their businesses online, regardless of age, role, experience or industry.

Through sample case studies, you will learn about common cybersecurity risks that businesses are facing today, along with how to identify those risks and reduce exposure. This includes issues such as identity theft, phishing and malware scams, bad passwords, unencrypted messages and more.

New to CPA Canada, the virtual classroom is an online learning platform that allows you to connect with experts and your peers to ask questions, share ideas and participate in real time. It is a premium digital experience, featuring live group work and an interactive case study to enforce concepts.
