The Internal Revenue Service and its Security Summit partners are beginning a five-part information initiative about security. The series is designed to provide information for tax professionals who are working outside their offices.

 The information is offered as part of the   "Protect Your Clients, Protect Yourself" campaign  launched in 2016 and will be delivered through news releases issued each Tuesday starting this week.

The releases feature the following topics:                                                                                                                                                                                                                                             *The "Security Six" − basic protections that all practitioners should take;                                                                                                                                                                                       *Multi-Factor Authentication to protect accounts;                                                                                                                                                                                                                            *Virtual Private Networks to protect remote sites;                                                                                                                                                                                                                        *Phishing scams, including COVID-19 and Economic Impact Payments;                                                                                                                                                                                      *Protect Yourself: The need for a security plan and data theft plan.
