TPB Guidance on Security for Tax Practitioners
The Tax Practitioners Board suggests it is time to take stock of your physical premises security to protect taxpayer data – and this applies to any data you store at your home office.
Simple measures to implement:
Check who has keys and building passes.
Password protect all devices on which you access client information.
Make sure all devices have the current operating systems and security controls.
Never share passwords.
Destroy physical documents securely using a shredder to remove all identifying data.
Keep physical records locked and secure.
Consider security systems like alarms or surveillance.
