Over the past few years, we have seen a fundamental shift in the accounting profession. Bound ledgers and paper forms have been entirely replaced by zero's and one's. Processes are increasingly being automated. Records, transactions, communications - and nearly every aspect of the practice of accounting has become digitized. While technology has proven to be an unprecedented asset for the profession, it comes with accompanying liabilities. Cybercrime has become a global pandemic; projected costs will exceed $6 trillion annually by 2021. Malware attacks have increased by over 2,000% over the past decade - and an increasing body of data privacy and protection laws and regulations have the potential to bankrupt the very victims who are attacked. Join us to gain insights into strategies from Artificial Intelligence and Advanced Robotic Process Automation that are now being used to keep the bad guys at bay - and you, and your clients, out of court.
