Accounting IT Support: HIPAA Compliance All the accounting firms that provide services to healthcare organizations and receive and maintain PHI (Protected Healthcare Information) as a part of its engagement must be HIPAA-compliant. HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) is a federal act whose objective is to raise awareness of how important it is to keep patients' data safe and protect it from any unauthorized access. Namely, all the industries that have access to PHI must meet the regulations listed in the Act, making sure they understand the consequences of unrightful disclosure and lack of adequate protection. In addition to HIPAA, accountants and CPAs need to meet the requirements of PCI (Payment Card Industry) compliance, which is aimed at all the industries that accept, process, store, or transmit credit card data. The regulations listed in both acts may be challenging to understand, which is why our IT firm offers help. We’ll make sure your system and network meet the requirements stated by HIPAA and PCI, providing them with the highest level of security. A lack of knowledge and understanding of the guidelines is often the reason why companies fail to comply with the requirements – such an error can cost them a lot of money and lead to many other inconveniences that can affect the firm's integrity and reputation.
IT Services for CPA: Accounting Software InstallationThe installation of accounting software will facilitate the workload and reduce the need for paperwork. However, you should know that the filed of the accounting software is quite broad, which is why Secure Networks ITC will explore your needs and requirements and recommend the adequate solution based on the results. Accounting software comes in both free and paid versions, and our task is to allow you to enjoy its benefits, save money and get more time to dedicate to some other aspects of your business.
Cloud Computing Services for Accounting and CPA FirmsWhen it comes to the settings of modern offices, we shouldn’t forget to mention cloud computing. Cloud offers a variety of platforms suitable for more straightforward communication within teams, file sharing and storing critical accounting data without worrying about its safety. The most prominent benefit of cloud computing lies in its unlimited connectivity and the ability to upgrade the storage at reasonable prices. Cloud platforms are encrypted, which means that your data won’t be at risk of being put in the wrong hands. We are aware of the advantages brought by the cloud, and we know how essential it is for accounting and CPA firms. Therefore, we offer the implementation of the following cloud platforms that will enhance your business connections:
- Microsoft Office 365 is a cloud-based version of Office programs such as Word, Excel, PowerPoint, etc. It is an excellent solution for accountants who deal with loads of data on a daily basis since it allows them to complete tasks on the go and communicate with their team via smartphones, using Microsoft Teams app.
- Microsoft Azure is an enterprise-like cloud platform, which allows you to manage your data most efficiently, making sure you also get the server in the cloud and enjoy the benefits of straightforward communication, sharing, and storing data.
Backup and Data Recovery Solutions for AccountantsKeeping critical data on your premises requires you to take a lot of care about it. Still, not all the situations are in your control, which is why you need to be prepared even for the worst scenarios. In case of computer and system failures, natural disasters, burst pipes that damage your workstations, employee negligence, cyberattacks, etc., your data is at risk of being permanently lost, which can cause many inconveniences. Therefore, you need to think in advance and prevent the data loss that comes as a result of the mentioned situations. Our company offers three backup methods that can help you retrieve your data in case it becomes compromised, lost, or stolen:
- On-site backup is done on your business premises, and it involves downloading the data from your server and storing it on the external hard drive. That said, it is possible to restore all your computers and servers to the previous state in case of the server crash.
- Off-site backup can be done weekly or monthly, depending on your firm’s needs and requirements.
- Cloud backup could be the most convenient option because it allows you to perform it as many times as you find it necessary. Apart from being inexpensive, it is suitable for storing files and folders.
