"The ThreatAdvice cybersecurity education platform is a new and exciting way for the CPA's of Alabama to learn about the imminent cyber risks for all businesses, and also to earn continuing professional education credits while doing so."

The Alabama State Board of Public Accountancy has approved the ThreatAdvice cyber education platform for accredited continuing professional education for CPAs within the state of Alabama.

Cybersecurity is of special importance to CPAs since they handle enormous amounts of very sensitive client data on a regular basis, and a breach can be devastating to both a practice and its clients.

One of Birmingham's premier accounting firms, Warren Averett, recently became a member of the ThreatAdvice platform. Dana Schmidt, Warren Averett's Director of Professional Development, said this about the cybersecurity tool: "The ThreatAdvice cybersecurity education platform is a new and exciting way for the CPA's of Alabama to learn about the imminent cyber risks for all businesses, and also to earn continuing professional education credits while doing so." 

Within the ThreatAdvice platform, Alabama CPAs are able to obtain 10 self study hours of continuing education credits. Each of the courses offered by ThreatAdvice focuses on very specific cybersecurity topics that are relevant to today's cyber environment. All courses are able to be completed at the participant’s desired pace, from the convenience and comfort of their own computer.
