You’re a tax professional and you’ve just learned that your business experienced a data breach. Whether hackers took client information from your server, an insider stole client information, or the information was exposed inadvertently, you’re probably wondering what to do next.
Join experts from the Internal Revenue Service, the National Association of Tax Professionals (NATP), and the Federal Trade Commission as they examine how to prepare for, respond to, and recover from a data breach. Discussion will cover response planning and communications; notification requirements and procedures; and developing a recovery plan to help your business get back on track.
