Accounting firms and practicing CPAs receive sensitive information from clients including tax identification numbers, social security numbers, and bank or credit card account numbers. They also receive sensitive business income and transaction data that must be protected.
Clients find it convenient to use email to send data to their CPAs, often on an ongoing basis. Email is fast and economical. But it is not secure. Banks do not even send the monthly statement over email. Rather they send a notification by email, and the customer must log in to the bank’s website to securely obtain their statement.
