Government Contract Compliance
We’re your government contract compliance specialists. And, as your accountants, we have a vested interest in the security of your financial and contractual information. As CPAs, we work with your accounting software, apps, cloud services, hardware, and networks. Financial audits include a section on cybersecurity as it relates to internal controls and data integrity. As government contract accountants, we’re keenly aware of the FAR 51.204-21 and DFARS 252.204-7012 requirements levied upon our clients, including the new Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC).
To learn more about the role of CPAs in cybersecurity, check out this whitepaper from the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) and this whitepaper from The Center for Audit Quality (CAQ).
