Firelands Computer Services Has the Technology You Need to Stay Compliant
Meeting regulatory compliance standards is important for any industry.
In the accounting industry, there aren’t that many technology standards that have to be met. At Firelands Computer Services, we know that no matter what regulations your organization has to meet, you need your data protected. To protect data we use encryption, access control, and other security and management tools to ensure your business’ infrastructure is safeguarded.
One compliance regulation that accountants are often held to is by the Sarbanes-Oxley Act; and, while there are no specifications to meet, it does state that a publicly-traded company’s management team is accountable for establishing and maintaining internal controls and procedures that foster accurate reporting. If your organization needs to meet SOX Act compliance standards, the IT professionals at Firelands Computer Services can expertly design and propose changes your organization can make to its IT to help promote secure and reliable transfer of financial information.
