Hodges University News

Accounting professionals are responsible for their clients’ personal information, and in turn, must be prepared to assist in situations of identity theft or fraud. To better prepare individuals in the accounting profession, Hodges University’s Identity Fraud Institute is offering two workshops focusing on data breach response planning and identity theft restoration.

On April 28 from 8:30 a.m. – 4:00 p.m., the IFI will host “Identity Theft Restoration for Accounting Professionals,” which has been accepted for six Technical Business CPE credits. CPAs, accountants and others working in the accounting profession who are interested in assisting their clients with identity theft restoration and risk reduction are encouraged to attend. A discounted rate of $275 will be available through April 14. Regular registration is $345 or $295 for nonprofit and government employees, and the deadline to register is April 21.

The “Developing a Data Breach Response Plan for Accounting Professionals” one-day workshop will take place May 5 from 8:30 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. Accepted for six Technical Business CPE credits, accounting professionals who are responsible for the security of protected personal identifying information are encouraged to attend. Participants will discover how data breaches occur, as well as learn the consequences of a breach; learn how to reduce the risk of a breach and identify applicable privacy laws; and develop a data breach response plan and enhance data privacy policies. The cost to attend is $275 for individuals who register by April 21. Regular registration is $345 or $295 for nonprofit and government employees, and the deadline to register is April 28.

All Identity Fraud Institute continuing education workshops are sponsored by CenturyLink and held on Hodges’ Naples campus, which is located at 2655 Northbrooke Drive, Naples, FL 34119. Attendees will receive a Certificate of Completion from Hodges University and proof of CE credits, if applicable.
