2 Credits: Regulatory Ethics

Course Description

Technology has transformed the accounting profession.  We are no longer bound by cubicles, office walls or state lines.  Modern accounting practices avail themselves to talent without physical limitations.  However, we as a professional must be ever mindful of regulatory standards and the safeguarding of confidential client information given this new environment.   In this session, we’ll begin with a discussion of accounting ethics and recent trends.  We’ll then move into a larger discussion of ethical considerations for remote employees including:

  1. Federal and State regulatory standards for confidential information.
  2. Risk mitigation tips in the event of a data breach, and
  3. Best practices for employees when working at a remote location.
