CSTC partners to protect tax pros from hackers

The California Society of Tax Consultants has partnered with vendor VeriFyle to offer members a more secure way to communicate and share documents with clients.

VeriFyle’s technology, a cloud-sharing platform, uses password-derived keys on top of a public-key system to individually encrypt data objects and has an option to disable password reset.

Under the partnership, the premium version of VeriFyle is free to CSTC members.

“Recognizing that tax professionals are constantly under attack by identity thieves, the CSTC Board has chosen a proactive approach for helping members defend themselves from these ongoing threats,” said CSTC president Rod Couts, in a statement.
