What you must take into account as an accountant

Accountants use e-mail a lot when it comes to exchanging privacy-sensitive data. Consider the exchange of financial data and insights that you do not want to end up in the wrong hands. This includes bank transactions, personnel and salary data, debtor data and other financial and privacy-sensitive data that is exchanged daily. As an accountant you always work with data and files from customers, which may also contain personal data. 

The GDPR has consequences for this branch: you as an office must be able to prove that you have taken the right technical and organizational measures. One of the measures is secure communication between you and your customer. Many accountancy firms use portals to exchange documents. If we look critically at the daily work processes, we can see that these portals are not used as intended. Unexpectedly, a lot of emails are sent back and forth via standard mail: this means that files are not sent securely . And where there is no secure email, there is always a high risk of a data breach.

Data breaches

Unsafe communication always leaves room for data breaches. And the figures from the Dutch Data Protection Authority also show that:

  • 11,906 data breaches were reported in the first half of 2019;
  • 63% of all data breaches are caused by human errors;
  • sending data to the wrong person it is the largest type of data breach.
