Most tax professionals believe they are inadequately protected from cyber crime-related risks, according to a recent poll of National Association of Tax Professionals’ (NATP) members.

The NATP survey of 633 tax professionals polled at the association’s annual conference in Phoenix reveals that fewer than four in 10 attendees (36 percent) are familiar with the risks posed by cyber incidents, such as data theft, identify theft and computer viruses. A bare majority of the respondents (51 percent) are somewhat familiar.
