Abstract

Accountants are the custodians of many peoples’ or businesses’ financial information. This information is clearly sensitive and therefore it is important for accountants to ensure that it is accuracy and complete while protecting them against lost, corruption or leaking to unauthorized third parties. This paper reports on a research on the security status of the industry of medium-sized accounting firms in New Zealand. Through interviews a number of deficiencies in information security management have been identified and a recommended security model was proposed to address those deficiencies.
