AICPA logoA mix of security issues topped the annual list of Top Technology Initiatives as selected by the American Institute of CPAs. The top issues selected encompassed security of data; code and communications; data security and document retention and security threats. Traditionally, the selection has been announced in January. However, this year, announcement was delayed as the AICPA considered changes to the selection process.

The AICPA also changed the selection process for the 21st anniversary of the list. Issues were chosen by members of the Information Technology Committee and what were referred to as select CPAs.

The number 2 selection was connectivity, wireless access and high-speed Internet connections and voice and data

The other issues in the Top Ten list were as follows:
3. Backup solutions/ disaster recovery/ business continuity
4. Secure electronic collaboration with clients – client portals.
5. Paperless workflow/ paperless technology/ electronic workpapers

7. Small business software / Office 2010 / Windows 7
8. User mobility/ mobile computing/ mobile devices
9.Tax software/ electronic transmittals of tax forms/ modern e-file
