As you’re growing your firm, it’s crucial that you’re using the right tools to automate and streamline your tax return workflows. In doing so, it’s highly likely that you’ll be collecting and working with your clients’ sensitive personally-identifiable data. Cybercriminals love using this information to commit cybercrimes, and have already launched attacks against 80% of businesses. Firms that fail to take reasonable and commensurate steps to protect this data could face serious sanctions under professional ethics laws and data security standards.
Abacus Private Cloud can help ensure your firm securely runs Decision Information Systems (DIS) and stores sensitive client data in a manner that meets your professional data security obligations. This is because our Private Cloud accounts can run DIS and store sensitive client files in an ePHI and HIPAA-compliant virtual cloud hosting environment that you can manage anywhere on any device. This allows you to securely run DIS while enjoying industry-vetted safeguards such as:
- 256-bit AES Encryption
- NIST-compliant data security and information handling protocols
- Automated software and server security upgrades
- SSAE-16, SOC 1, 2 and 3-compliant data center network
- Dedicated IP addresses
- Flexible and scalable hosting infrastructure that can adapt to your storage needs and to GDPR, PIPEDA, HITRUST and similar standards
- SSL-A rated servers and device account connections
Our team of experienced DIS cloud hosting specialists can also assist with conducting regular cybersecurity audits, ensuring your account maintains at least 99.9999% uptime service levels, and address your day-to-day hosting concerns.
