This B&I Spy took a break from the usual morning routine on July 17 and headed to the TXCPA Austin office for a 1-hour CPE session on Information Security.

Phishing. Vishing. Smishing. Clickjacking. These are just a few of the terms discussed by Matt Kelly, Governance, Risk and Compliance Manager with the Texas Department of Information Resources. His interactive presentation included the who, why, what and how of the modern threat landscape with specific incident examples. Matt also shared information on cyber-insurance and best practices and tips for individuals and organizations. This excellent presentation provided valuable and useful information that this spy will put into practice now.

The B&I Committee plans to offer quarterly 1-hour CPE sessions on topics identified in a recent survey. The next session will be held in October.
