Security has always been important to me as my firm started using:
- cloud based accounting software
- more technology solutions for transferring data between my clients, the tax authorities and my staff
- more technology solutions for client business efficiencies
- communicating between remote staff and clients

Please click through my “Pre-Tax Season and Pre-Covid” blog post of February 2020 for my thoughts and recommendations on the importance of duel factor authentication for safeguarding data. But it does not stop there.
