There’s little doubt about it – financial fraud is on the rise. A 2014 Association of Certified Fraud Examiners‘ global study found that most companies lose 5% of their revenue each year thanks to fraud. What could you do with 5% more? One target in this world of fraud is the accounting firm. No matter how large or small, accounting firms hold essential, personal data for businesses of all sizes, and document destruction laws in this arena are fairly strict. The FACTA includes a provision that applies to accounting firms. The 2002 SOX Act does as well. Going back to 1999, the Gramm-Leach Bliley Act called for shredding any information of a financial nature in the event of disposal. How are you handling that compliance?
