    These days it’s not unusual for headlines to highlight matters where professionals such as CPAs are accused of malfeasance in work performed for clients. But, still many CPAs carry liability coverage as a necessary “but I will never really need it” evil that they may carry more out of habit than real risk. You may even think it—meaning lawsuits or claims—can't happen to you. After all, accounting seems like a fairly predictable industry. While that may even be true, even the best practitioners can find themselves caught unaware. In fact, this view can be lethal to a practice. Savvy CPAs know that as the profession expands the services it provides in an effort to compete in a global economy, their exposure may also increase, or at least change. The types of risk simply evolve along the way, and so professionals should be prepared. From information security to new laws and policies, it's critical to stay on top of the trends. While predicting risk trends in an uncertain future is never easy, especially with respect to a profession with such diverse talents and services, this timely and informative webcast will discuss some of the trends giving rise to risk for today's accounting professional, and will also provide you with guidance and suggestions for reducing the likelihood of an engagement problem down the road.

    This program, presented by Stephanie Perkins, a well-seasoned and experienced litigator and risk management advisory counsel to the profession], will help you face the challenge by offering practical risk-management suggestions, such as contract and engagement-letter drafting and guidance on formulating document-retention policies, and we provide consulting services on issues such as electronic documentation and expansion of scope of services. The program will also cover the risks associated with areas such as:
    -Data Protection
    -Engagement Documentation
    -Wealth Transfer
    -Business Engagements
