AICPA, Other Countries Discuss Online Privacy
Officials from the AICPA traveled last week to the city of lights to meet with representatives of 12 other countries and discuss the foreboding issue of online privacy and risks associated with e-Commerce.
AICPA chairman Robert Elliott commented that 'As the representative of over 335,000 individual members of the accounting profession who deal with confidential information on behalf of both individuals and businesses, we feel strongly about the need to protect private information. Consumers and businesses want to know that their privacy is protected both on- and off-line.'
While in Paris, the group issued 10 ways in which online privacy can be protected while using the Internet. For more information about best practices and tips, visit the AICPA's Webtrust pages at www.aicpa.org.
