  • The CPA’s Role in Insurance Industry Cybersecurity

    Recent data breaches have us all on edge regarding cybersecurity, especially CPAs working in the insurance industry. These companies collect and are privy to a lot of sensitive data. Russell Sommers, CPA, CISA, senior manager with Baker Tilly Virchow Krause LLP, explains how cybersecurity, especially with the recent release of the National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC) Insurance Data Security Model Law, is not just an IT concern. Sommers, along with his colleague Christopher Tait, will speak in greater detail on this issue at PICPA’s 2017 Insurance Conference on Nov. 30-Dec. 1.
  • The Lowdown on Lease Accounting

    What are the three aspects of FASB’s Big 3 Project? As anyone who has been knee-deep in their implementation can tell you, they are revenue recognition, financial instruments, and the topic of our latest edition of CPA Conversations: lease accounting. In a preview of his presentation at the Dec. 6 PICPA Accounting and Auditing Conference, Keith Peterka, a partner with Citrin Cooperman in Philadelphia, gives us the skinny on this meaty subject matter.
