Val King is the CEO of Ascent Portal, who we’re pleased to welcome as our newest FICPA Premier Partner, serving our members with all their risk assessment and compliance needs.

And Christophe Reglat is the President & CEO of Coaxis International, as well as a longtime friend of the FICPA.

In this informative discussion, Shelly, Val and Christophe address:

  • How and why its necessary build a WISP
  • What the Safeguards Rule means for CPAs
  • Why accounting firms are top targets for bad actors
