The Gramm Leach Bliley Act (GLBA) is a federal law requiring financial institutions to develop, implement, and maintain administrative, technical, and physical safeguards to protect the client information.
Tax preparers and accounting firm are a prime fit that GLBA applies to.
Under GLBA, penalties for non-compliance can include fines of up to $100,000 per violation, with fines for officers of up to $10,000 per violation. And if that wasn’t enough, the provisions include criminal penalties of up to five years in prison, and the revocation of licenses.
We know most accounting firm are busy doing what they are great at. We also know that your IT can't be legally held liable if there is a data breach at your firm so they don't really have you covered.
