Hire a PTIN Certified IT Firm
Are you a one-person firm or partner looking to comply with IRS regulations? If so, you may need to create a Written Information Security Program (WISP). The good news is that we can connect you with a PTIN Security Group WISP specialist to help you create a WISP that meets all IRS requirements for $1,500 + $1,000 (per additional employee).
Why do you need a WISP? A WISP is a plan that outlines how you will protect sensitive information in your business. It includes policies and procedures for safeguarding data, responding to security incidents, and ensuring compliance with applicable laws and regulations. The IRS requires certain businesses to have a WISP in place, and failing to do so can result in penalties and other consequences.
Going through a certified WISP specialist, we have vetted the organization and know that they can work with you to create a customized WISP that meets all IRS requirements. They understand the unique needs of small businesses and can help you develop a plan that is practical, effective, and easy to implement. A Certified WISP Specialist process includes:
Initial audit: They start by discussing your business and its information security needs. Most organizations do this through a remote connection to the server or main computer for the business.
Identify any sensitive information you store or transmit, such as customer data or financial information, and determine what security measures are necessary to protect it.
WISP development: Using the information gathered in the consultation, the WISP is developed and customized that meets all IRS requirements. This plan will outline your policies and procedures for protecting sensitive information and responding to security incidents.
Implementation support: We’ll provide you with guidance on how to implement your WISP and ensure that your employees understand their roles and responsibilities. We can also help you monitor your security measures and update your plan as needed.
Documentation: We’ll provide you with all the documentation you need to show the IRS that you have a compliant WISP in place.
