According to the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) Safeguards Rule, tax preparers, CPAs and other financial institutions must implement cyber security plans to protect client data by June 9, 2023. Failure to do so may result in an FTC investigation.
The Blue Light IT team is here to help you understand the Safeguards Rule and avoid fines or other serious consequences. Don’t risk noncompliance: Register for our free webinar on December 13 now.
The FTC has substantially strengthened the Safeguards Rule with new requirements to increase and improve protection of sensitive consumer information. To ensure compliance, you must be prepared and informed.
If you work with consumer data (e.g. full name, Social Security number, address, income, etc.) chances are you need to comply, especially if you are familiar with the W-12 tax form.
When filling out the W-12 form, you confirm under Section 11, Data Security Responsibilities, that you have a data security plan in place as well as system security protections.

“Blue Light IT did a Cybersecurity Risk Assessment for me. It was professionally performed with great details and I was offered two options to choose from. Both of the options were within my price range.”

Every company is different, and varies in size, scope and the amount of data they store. The only way to accurately determine a price point for security services is by performing a risk assessment.
