With the enforcement of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002, finance departments must remain transparent in their reporting practices to mitigate fraudulent activity. Yet these departments continue to struggle with privacy and security measures and as a result, fall victim to wire fraud and phishing scams. So, how can you assess and prevent risks to stay compliant and combat attacks?

Finance and accounting expert Gary Vecchiarelli recommends implementing internal security controls to conduct preventative risk analyses and assessments and forecast potential attacks. At the foundational level, finance departments can invest in firewalls and encryption and instruct team members to approve transactions. To ensure maximum security, Gary advises incorporating the COSO Framework into your business processes to comply with industry standards and identify, monitor, and eliminate risks effectively.

Gary shares how he manages security from a financial perspective, how finance departments can prevent fraud and hacking, and the impact of risk assessments on financial decisions.
