3 Cybersecurity Requirements for Accountants. One Simple, Time-Saving Service.
Government cyber security guidelines for financial professionals are time-sensitive and carry severe penalties. Here’s what you need to know to stay in compliance and save valuable time.

You’re required to conduct a thorough and accurate Risk Assessment, providing the basis for a detailed Information Securi
ty Program. You’ll need this ISP clearly documented
in writing in order to comply.
Penalties for non-compliance: imprisonment for up to 5 years, steep fines or both. Your business could be fined up to $100,000 for each violation; officers and directors could be fined up to $10,000 for each violation.

To renew your PTIN in October 2022, you’ll be required to create a current Data Security Plan. Criteria are only satisfied with a current ISP as per the GLBA Safeguards Rule.

If you operate in New York State or store information on NYS residents, the NY SHIELD Act, which was effective as of March 2020, requires you to have & document procedures to safeguard customer information.
The act doubles the civil penalty from $10 to $20 per failed notification or $5,000, whichever is greater. The Act also increases the statutory cap on the penalty from $150,000 to $250,000.

Get expert guidance toward compliance with all three requirements, with one simple, time-saving service by Securex. 


How It Works


You’ll designate one member of your team as your security officer.

We’ll guide that person through a 30-45 minute questionnaire or interview and direct some questions to your IT provider. If you do not have an IT provider we will help set you up with a qualified IT specialist.

That’s it. We’ll use the information gathered to provide you with an expert Risk Assessment and your written Information Security Plan. You and your team will use these documents and recommendations to make decisions about policy and controls going forward.
