As a bookkeeper or accountancy business, you may handle sensitive financial information on a daily basis. This makes you a prime target for cyber-attacks and frauds. In this article, we’ll discuss the risks that bookkeepers face and strategies on how to protect yourself and your clients from them.
Why Bookkeepers & Accountants Are At Risk?
