Accounting firms heavily feature automation in their business operations today. Digital assistance allows such firms to maximize their performance without many hassles. However, the more you rely on online and cloud technology for your sensitive financial operations, the wider you're leaving the door open for nasty cyberattacks from various parts of the internet. Data security best practices in accounting include some basic-looking but immensely useful measures to keep your accounting systems secure from malicious entities.

Prioritizing items to be safeguarded

Your accounting operations consist of several different sub-operations and large amounts of confidential data. Ideally, high-end data security tools need to be protecting every accounting system or database. However, most modern cybersecurity tools are expensive to purchase, source, and implement. So, incorporating them across the board will be time-consuming and impractical. Additionally, certain devices or data are more sensitive than others. Therefore, you will need to prioritize the ones that are most valuable so that you can invest in expensive data security tools to protect them with more assurance.

Performing audits and penetration testing regularly

Being an accounting firm, you advise your clients to carry out regular audits from time to time to see if their books are properly balanced and free of accounting errors or fraud. Similarly, regular security audits can unearth any cybersecurity vulnerabilities in your own IT network, especially if new devices or applications have been installed recently. Penetration testing enables you to know the operations and network areas where exposure to cyber-threats is greater than others.
